Diabetes in Pregnancy(Gestational Diabetes Mellitus- GDM)



Diabetes affects both the baby and the mother during pregnancy. On one hand high blood sugar level (even slight) have deleterious effects on baby’s development, it is also associated increased complications in mother during pregnancy and labor.


Low blood sugar levels also lead to complications in the baby. Hence, a very fine balance of tight sugar control needs to be attained during pregnancy. We have designed this program for all those women who either develop diabetes first time during pregnancy or have pre- existing diabetes.


A complete clinical examination and appropriate tests will be conducted to assess the status of diabetes and its complications. Our doctors, will then advise you regarding your diet, exercise and medication and will closely monitor you through the pregnancy with the aim to achieve “healthy baby and healthy mother”.
