What are the effects of high blood sugar (200+) in a lactating mother, on her infant child? Does high blood sugar = sweeter milk?
Haven't heard data: Haven't heard any data on that. Since milk production is a living process, it is reasonable to suspect that the lactose (a combination of glucose & galactose sugars) might increase if mom's blood glucose rises above a certain excessive level, and to suspect that glucose might "leak" into breastmilk if mom's glucose level is over some threshold level. Don't know if any researcher has milk this way. Read more

Confusing question: If you are referring to a down syndrome child the terms referring to "mongolism" have not been used in more than 4 decades. It was an archaic scientific idea that it represented a primitive form of human. Mothers will only know for sure if their baby carries this defect after delivery, unless prenatal chromosome studies are done on fetal cells. Read more
