Agada Secure - The diabetes care environment
Hormonal changes in a pregnant women can sometimes reduce the effect of Insulin, leading to increased sugar levels in blood. This condition is called Gestational diabetes mellitus and is being increasingly seen among pregnant women. Persistent high blood sugar levels, even slightly higher than the conventionally accepted normal levels, is detrimental to the baby’s development within uterus and also leads to complications to the mother during pregnancy and labor.

After a thorough clinical examination, evaluation is done to assess severity of diabetes and to check for associated complications. A comprehensive treatment including advice on diet, physical activity and medications is provided and the progress tracked through monthly follow-up.
