The Importance Of Regulating Glucose Levels During Pregnancy
Whether the mother has diabetes before pregnancy or develops gestational diabetes during the pregnancy, it is essential to both the mother and child that the mother’s blood sugar levels are controlled throughout the pregnancy, labor and delivery.
The brain needs glucose to survive. When blood sugar levels are too low for an extended time, called hypoglycemia, the child can suffer cerebral palsy or other types of serious brain injury. If the mother’s blood sugar gets too high, a condition called hyperglycemia, it can also cause brain damage. The child can become too large for safe delivery, leading to an emergency cesarean section or the need to use forceps or vacuum extraction methods during delivery.
