In this video, we’re going to talk about pregnancy and diabetes. If you have pre-diabetes, insulin resistance, or you’re a diabetic while pregnant, there are several things you need to know.
What is insulin resistance? — This is a condition where your body is not able to absorb insulin. Your body has to make more insulin than it needs, and that excess insulin creates a lot of problems. Your blood sugars may be normal, but you have a big problem under the surface.
HOMA-IR is a test you can take before you get pregnant to check and see if you have insulin resistance.
Complications from having blood sugar problems while pregnant:
• The baby is more likely to become a diabetic
• There is a higher risk of a stillbirth
• The mother may have a problem with fertility
• The baby may have stunted growth
• The baby may have birth defects
• The baby may have pre-eclampsia
The big problem with insulin resistance, pre-diabetes, or diabetes is that your ability to absorb certain essential nutrients is impaired. If you’re pregnant and you have insulin resistance, you need to be taking nutrients or eating foods rich in nutrients to prevent complications.
Nutrients you need:
• Vitamin C
• Vitamin A
• Vitamin E
Symptoms of insulin resistance:
• Belly fat
• Frequent urination at night
• Not satisfied after eating
• Tired after eating
• Low blood sugar symptoms
• Craving carbs
• Get on the healthy ketogenic diet (before you’re pregnant or during pregnancy)
• Do intermittent fasting (only before you’re pregnant, not during pregnancy or while breast-feeding)
