When a Type 1 diabetic patient enters pregnancy the requirement of insulin increases due to the added demand on insulin for the foetal growth and development. If there is excess calorie consumption along with increased insulin dose, excess fat deposit associated weight gain can induce insulin resistance and complicates things further. As the insulin demand increases during pregnancy, control of blood sugar and avoiding hypoglycemic attacks become more difficult.
Proper planning and optimization of food pattern and physical activity before entering pregnancy will help the type 1 diabetic patient to have a smooth and comfortable pregnancy period. This will help to ensure optimal intrauterine growth and development for the child and avoiding pregnancy complications like congenital anomalies, preterm labour, hypertension etc in pregnancy.
