Q.

stres en diabetes

My bloedsuiker was tydens swangerskap verhoog (34 jaar gelede) Na my kinders se geboorte was dit weer normaal en deur die jare met roetine ondersoeke in die omgewing van 5.

Die afgelope 2/3 maande het ek agtergekom dat ek baie meer water drink, gewig verloor en ook ''n paar ander simptome van diabetes ondervind. My huisdokter het dit bevestig - suiker was 27. Ek gebruik nou Glucovance 1000mg 2xpd. Suiker afgekom na ongeveer 9-12.

Ek ihet ook ''n geskiedenis van hoe bloedruk en cholestrol

My vrae is: is daar enige verband tussen verhoogde suikervlakke gedurende swangerskap en diabetes 2? My kind is onlangs oorlede na ''n lang siektbed. Is dit moontlik dat die spanning van afgelope maande, diabetes kon veroorsaak?

Dear Marico
Patients with diabetes during pregnancy(gestational diabetes) are at increased risk for developing diabetes after they have delivered, and this may only occur years later. Normally the patients who develop diabetes during pregnancy are patients who are already at increased risk for developing diabetes because of other risk factors(overweight, a family history of diabetes, high blood pressure, raised cholesterol, or polycystic ovarian syndrome). Stress doesn’t cause diabetes, but may bring it on sooner.
