Effect of Diabetes on Pregnancy

Tips for ParentBy Onlymyhealth Editorial Team / Apr 26, 2012

Diabetes in pregnant women can happen because of two reasons. One can be that she had diabetes form before or that she develops the condition during the term of her pregnancy. Due to improper functioning of insulin, diabetic pregnant women can suffer from high blood pressure, premature delivery or abortion. Newly born baby of a diabetic mother has higher chances of developing the same in future (inheriting it from the mother). In case of diabetes before pregnancy, the foetus develops diabetic conditions in initial stages of organ formation along with some spinal or cardiac problems. The ailment passes on from one generation to another.
