Gestational Diabetes is a serious issue that has covered more than 200,000 of pregnancies as of the medical records for 2015. Gestational Diabetes also is known as GDM is a condition where intolerance of glucose results in high blood pressure and glucose levels in the body. This condition leads to various complications and difficulties in the delivery and impacts on the health of the mother. This condition often results in long-term and short-term effects on the healthy baby and the mother (Dasgupta, et. al., 2018). The main intervention identified in the treatment of this issue is changing in lifestyle, exercises and regular checkup of the glucose level in the blood.
The study is significant as it provides with a detailed analysis of the various interventions and will provide with the literature on the practice of various actions to subsidize the impact on the mother and the baby. The condition of GDM leads to higher blood pressures and induced labour. The babies given birth under such circumstances are larger in size as compared to other case scenarios (Pedersen, et. al., 2017). It also leads to broken bones and severe damages to the nerves of the baby. The paper will provide with deep insights and detailed analysis of the impacts of interventions undertaken in order to reduce the level of complications and negative pregnancies rates. The interventions such as healthy eating, physical activity and own diagnosis or check up for the levels of glucose in the blood can be practised by women in order to reduce the occurrence of gestational diabetes in the pregnancies.
