Preconception Counseling and Birth Control Options
Oct 18, 2011 | 
Being your own advocate is imperative for women with diabetes, especially when it comes to gynecologic care. As soon as a young woman is ready to become sexually active, she needs to talk with her doctor about contraceptive options.

Sep 27, 2011 | 
A couple of factors lead to increased risk of insulin shock comas during the first trimester.  For many, insulin sensitivity increases and the pancreas isn't yet producing the hormones associated with insulin resistance.  In addition, many type 1s will be taken off of their current basal insulin if it is not yet approved for use during pregnancy.

Nov 18, 2010 | 
When I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes 23 years ago, I remember being told that having children would be a very difficult challenge.  I was seven years old at the time - still a child myself - and had no interest in becoming a mom.  My own mother was very distressed at this news, but I didn't pay it any mind.  I had other things to focus on:  trees to climb, bikes to ride, and friends to play with.
Gestational Diabetes

Women who deal with gestational diabetes in their first or second pregnancy are far more likely to develop the condition again in their third pregnancy, according to a new study from Kaiser Permanente that examined the electronic medical records of 65,132 women.

Apr 11, 2010 |
