Gestational Diabetes is diabetes that occurs during pregnancy. It may
be the same as Type 2 diabetes, caused by consumption of toxic engineered fats
and oils, and cured with natural ones.
Gestational diabetes is diabetes that occurs during pregnancy. It usually
affects the mother in the fifth or sixth month of pregnancy (24 - 28 weeks), and
usually disappears after the baby is born. It affects about 4% of all pregnant
women; nearly 135,000 pregnant women get it every year, making it one of the top
concerns of pregnancy.
Once you have had it, your chances are 2 in 3 that you will have it in future
It does not cause the kind of birth defects sometimes seen in babies whose
mothers experienced diabetes before pregnancy, but uncontrolled it can hurt your
baby. Your pancreas will work overtime to produce insulin, but the insulin does
not lower your blood sugar levels. Although insulin does not cross the placenta,
glucose does, and the baby will have high blood glucose levels. The baby's
pancreas will make extra insulin to get rid of the excess glucose which will be
stored as fat.
This excess fat is called macrosomia. Babies with macrosomia
may damage their shoulders during birth. The extra insulin made by the
baby's pancreas may cause a newborn to have very low blood glucose levels at
birth, and have a higher risk of breathing problems.
It may be the same as Type 2 diabetes
Gestational diabetes and Type 2 diabetes are patho-physiologically similar and
involve insulin resistance. Of those identified, about 90% have a deficiency of
insulin receptors before pregnancy, or a marked increase in abdominal weight.
The other 10% do not produce enough insulin, and eventually develop Type 2
insulin dependent diabetes. This could indicate that both diseases have the same
cause, namely the consumption of toxic engineered fats and oils and lack of
essential fatty acids. The disease is not so advanced before pregnancy to show
symptoms, but the demands of pregnancy causes the symptoms to appear.
While treatment should of course be under medical supervision, the cure
involves removing the toxic fats and oils from your diet, and replacing them
with natural ones. This substitution would not appear to cause any difficulty.
