Lifestyle that protects pregnancy from diabetes

Wednesday October 1st, 2014

Following a low risk lifestyle could dramatically cut the risk of developing a type of diabetes linked to pregnancy, researchers say today.

Women with healthy lifestyles halve their risk of developing the problem, according to the new study.

Diabetes which starts in pregnancy, or gestational diabetes, is a growing health concern that can cause both short and long-term health problems for mothers and their babies. It brings a raised risk of high blood pressure, pre-eclampsia, and type 2 diabetes after pregnancy.

In order to assess the benefit of healthy lifestyle factors before pregnancy (healthy body weight, healthy diet, regular exercise, and not smoking), figures were taken on 20,136 live births in 14,437 women who took part in the Nurses' Health Study II between 1989 and 2001.
