For each type of diabetes, there are numerous medications available recommended by health experts. But what should you do if you have diabetes and planning to get pregnant?
Planning A Baby While Having Diabetes
One of the most important things to remember about diabetes and pregnancy is that if you want to conceive, it is essential that you should get your blood sugar levels in control for four to seven months before trying. It is because there are higher risks that you and your baby may face due to high blood sugar levels.
For mothers, it may risk the chances to worsen kidney conditions, like a urinary tract infection. Also, it can cause a serious medical condition like preeclampsia (sometimes called toxemia) that causes swelling, protein in the urine, and increases blood pressure. Preeclampsia is serious and can be life-threatening for you and your baby.
