Type 2 Diabetes – What Is The Best Treatment For Stabilizing Blood Sugar in Gestational Diabetes?

Standard treatment prescribed for mothers diagnosed with Gestational, or pregnancy-related diabetes, at one time was insulin – the same first-line therapy for people who have been diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. Like Type 2 diabetes, Gestational diabetes is caused not by lack of insulin, as is the case in Type 1 diabetes, but by the body’s resistance to insulin. Since diabetes diagnosed during pregnancy more closely resembles Type 2 diabetes than Type 1, drugs for treating Type 2 diabetes can be used for treating Gestational diabetes, as well. Both metformin and glibenclamide have been proven effective, but little research has been performed to learn which one gives better results.

Researchers at Huazhong University of Science and Technology in Hubei, China, combined the results of eight studies on skipping breakfast, and analysed the studies as if they were one large study. A total of 106,935 participants, including 7419 Type 2 diabetics were included in the analysis.

You’ve probably heard a lot about eating a healthy, balanced diet to help you manage your Type 2 diabetes – one that includes fruits, vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy, and lean protein.
