Pre pregnancy diabetes

This content is created for Diabetes Mine, a consumer health blog focused on the diabetes community.
Growing up, I never got presents or money or rewards of any kind for doing multiple blood tests a day or getting my A1c down.
Polina Bryson is a healthcare professional and D-mom in California, whose school-age daughter lives with type 1 diabetes and celiac disease. Today is just Day Six of Diabetes Awareness Month, and I'm already feeling somewhat burnt out and am anxiously awaiting the month's end.
Dear People with Diabetes who have decided not to give birth,Please take a moment to consider the fact that your diabetes may not be the same as everyone else's diabetes.
I get the diabetics past 14 yrs i get marriage before 2 yrs i went for pregnancy treatment but the result all negative now i did n't went for treatment i want special doctors who treating for type 1 diabetics patient for pregnancy. The most important thing to do while trying to get pregnant is to keep the faith and courage. In response to Lauren K's comment, I have Type I Diabetes, have only had it for 2 years, I am 29 now, and can't wait to have children! I am a type 1 diabetic and I have been one for 18 years now since I was 5 years old, I am now 23 and I would really like to have a baby and I'm not talking about anytime soon I would just like to know what steps need to be taken for planning a pregnancy and what things someone like me would need to do to ensure a healthy baby and a healthy self for the pregnancy. Pregnancy isn't on our agenda for at least another year or so, but I've pre-ordered the book on Amazon and will be glad to have the chance to get the information you so desperately wanted before we even start trying.


She is currently 8 weeks pregnant with her first baby and though unplanned she is delighted.
Without them, the chances of having a pregnancy colored by complications, both for me and for the unborn baby, were high.
I find what most people know about D pregnancy is all from "Steel Magnolias" which, while being a true story, is also not much relevant to how diabetic pregnancies go these days. The visit was a long list of all the potential things that could go wrong, from the pregnancy itself, to actually giving birth, to the health of my future child: birth defects. I have been so frustrated for the past few years with the lack of facts, common sense, and bedside manner when it comes to Diabetes.
Being diagnosed at age 10, I can attest that there are many psychological impacts most people don't know about which result from diabetes. Read the medical journals on the studies done and you will see that the risk of higher complications is minuscule with good control and a well monitored pregnancy. Science is progressing all the time and for those young children with Diabetes there is much hope. And they were able to do it with the tight blood sugar control recommended for women with pre-existing diabetes.
The truth is, with average hemoglobin A1C numbers in the 4-7 percent range, women with diabetes are no more likely to have pregnancy complications than are women without diabetes.


Plus, I wanted to connect with others who were pregnant, had given birth, or who were trying to conceive, all with type 1 diabetes.At the same time, I found that there were no insider's guides to pregnancy with pre-existing diabetes that were told from an actual woman with diabetes' perspective. The books sanctioned by official diabetes organizations were written by health care professionals, and not by people with diabetes (as far as I could tell). I found Kathryn Gregorio Palmer's excellent book, When You're A Parent With Diabetes,  which touches on pregnancy, hadn't been published yet. And while I found an out-of-print Australian book that interviewed women with type 1, but it was actually pretty dry and clinical.I began slowly finding other bloggers writing about pregnancy and diabetes.
My book, "Balancing Pregnancy with Pre-Existing Diabetes: Healthy Mom, Healthy Baby," (see above link) will be published by Demos Medical Publishing in early 2010. It gives the insider details of pregnancy and type 1 or type 2 diabetes, using both my own experience and insights from dozens of other women who have been there.
I hope it will give future readers the kind of information I was so hungry for and that it will give them the sense that a pregnancy with diabetes doesn't have to be the horror show some doctors (or the technically accurate but extremely dated film Steel Magnolias) would lead you to believe.Instead, pregnancy with pre-existing diabetes is a challenge and a boatload of work, no doubt, but it can be a pregnancy where the end result is a fantastically healthy and happy new mother and baby.
