Warm temperatures increase the risk of gestational diabetes
The air temperature on the probability of pregnancy diabetes? In the case of pregnancy diabetes (also called gestational diabetes), increases the level of sugar in the blood is affected by the normal level. Canadian researchers have now found a direct link between the risk of gestational diabetes and the outside air temperatures.
Scientists from St. Michael’s Hospital Institute for Clinical Evaluative Sciences noted in the study that there seems to be a direct link between gestational diabetes and the provision of outside air temperatures. The doctors published their findings in the journal “Canadian Medical Association Journal“.

Aware of the researchers on the study of nearly 400, 000 women on the study re-consideration of the expert the records of nearly 400, 000 pregnant women in the metropolitan area of Toronto. All of these participants had given birth in the period between 2002 and 2014, a child.
The effects of gestational diabetes this is the first population-based study of the relationship between the air temperature and the risk of diabetes studied, says the author, Dr. Gillian booth. This type of diabetes during pregnancy occurs if left untreated, cause stillbirth. Moreover, this is reinforced by the disease the risk of complications during childbirth and the mother and child increase the likelihood of developing Type 2 diabetes, the expert adds.
Successful management of pregnancy in diabetes is possible in the management of gestational diabetes is difficult, but still doable, say doctors. In order to manage the situation carefully, it requires good planning. Belong to this war on the preparation of light meals, checking blood sugar four times daily, weekly ultrasound examination regular appointments with doctors to prevent the potential complications, for example.
Also, the newborn can suffer from the effects of pregnancy diabetes women gestational diabetes is not alone affected by the disease. Children also can suffer from this disease and thus require a special diet, scientists say. The whole process is, of course, to deal with a very stressful and difficult, especially the mother. The researchers found now that there seems to be a simple new way to reduce the risk of gestational diabetes.
How is the effect of cold on brown fat in the human body? A team of experts took the extreme fluctuations in temperature in Canada between the seasons to a normal experience. This was on the basis of the extent of the activity of so called brown fat from the affected by the produce heat and to support the metabolism, say the researchers. If during the investigation temperature of 24 ° C to 19 ° C reduction showed a nuclear test participants with significant improvements in insulin sensitivity. This suggests that even a slight increase in air temperature may cause a lot of women develop gestational diabetes.
The doctor compared the database of load historical weather data for the investigation, the panel reviewed, and a database on cases of pregnancy and record of historical weather data. So experts calculated 30 day average high and low air temperatures. Later, the women were then asked to have a glucose test.
What is the role of insulin? When a woman in the third trimester of pregnancy, they are less sensitive to the hormone insulin, experts explain. The sensitivity then rises in the third quarter again. Insulin is produced by the pancreas and is a hormone called the human body sugar and carbohydrates to process food properly, and scientists.
10 degrees warmer air temperature increases the risk of gestational diabetes by up to 9 percent after adjusting the results of the work, the number of pregnancies body mass index and socio-economic factors, it became clear that any increase in average air temperature to 10 ° C with six to nine percent increase the probability of gestational diabetes rise, say the authors.
15 million women annually suffer from gestational diabetes every year throughout the world an estimated 15 million pregnant women with gestational diabetes affected. If the link between air temperature and risk of gestational diabetes corresponds with reality, can lead to the reduction of heat in our homes to reduce the likelihood of disease gestational diabetes, the authors explain
A warming climate can lead to increased widespread cases of gestational diabetes leads to climate change-models up to the year 2050 show an increase surface temperatures one to two degrees Celsius by the. Even a slight increase in air temperature can actually mean that many women develop gestational diabetes. (Km)
