What percent of mothers with gestational diabetes deliver their babies prematurely?

What percent of mothers with gestational diabetes deliver their babies prematurely?

Depends On Control: There is no single digit answer you can apply to an individual patient. One brazillian study in 2011 found that 14% of 400 women delivered prematurely, but the rate really depends on how well the mother controls her disease, other issues like preeclampsia, and the reason for delivery (poor control can cause other problems for the mom/baby that could require a cesarean section before 38 weeks). ...Read more

Week on ultrasound picture is gestational age or fetal age.?

Both: Fetal age is of course the exact age of your fetus as determined by measurements taken of the baby. Fetuses have different rates of growth or may have problems with growth, so sometimes the measurement age doesn't match the "expected" gestational age. The best "age" is determined by an early ultrasound between 6 and 12 weeks gestation. Accuracy of ultrasound decreases as pregnancy progresses. ...Read more

Premature babies, however, have much lower stores and need extra iron to prevent what is called 'anemia of prematurity.' this is also a common age to develop a normal drop in hemoglobin, which is usually not harmful. Talk to your doctor to find out how much iron should be added, since it is based on weight. ...Read more

Is cataract operation due to diabetes at age 46 too young?

Is cataract operation due to diabetes at age 46 too young?

No: I agree a second opinion is always good if you have any concerns. Diabetes is associated with the early development of a specific type of cataract, so it is not unusual. More importantly, even in a perfect cataract surgery case, diabetes inside the eye may worsen. So, when the cataract is ready, it is preferable to perform the surgery earlier, when diabetes in the eye is minimal. ...Read more

Yes, but partially: Gestational diabetes, which is often a precursor to type 2 diabetes, has a strong hereditary genetic component.
