An Artificial Pancreas For Pregnant Women With Type 1 Diabetes
Pregnancy makes it hard to keep blood sugar levels under control due to the fluctuating hormones. Type 1 diabetes pregnant women normally spend about 10 hours a day with glucose levels outside the recommended glucose levels. This then increases the risk of birth defects, neonatal death, preterm delivery, oversized babies, and more. However, a new study has shown that using an artificial pancreas during pregnancy helps to keep blood sugar levels near normal and greatly reduces the risk of still born for pregnant women with type 1 diabetes. Ask your doctor for more information about this new device.
