Today health care providers no longer discourage women with diabetes from becoming pregnant. Women who manage their diabetes well during pregnancy can have a relatively normal pregnancy and give birth to healthy babies.
The key to a healthy pregnancy for a woman with diabetes is keeping blood sugars in the target range—both before she is pregnant and during her pregnancy.
Since no one’s pregnancy is being more closely watched than mother-to-be, Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, she’s inspiring us to talk pregnancy, motherhood and diabetes from a diva’s point of view on May’s upcoming Diabetes Roundtable podcast.
Kate Middleton has impressed the world with her modest fashions, charitable efforts and down to earth persona. She was recently named one of TIME magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World and Vanity Fair’s Best Dressed Pregnant Lady. Her fairy tale romance is a good, old-fashioned love story. Prince finds a common girl. Prince falls in love. They get married and live happily ever after. But how would she fair if she was living with diabetes.
Mr. Divabetic adds a ‘divabetic’ twist to Kate Middleton’s palace life, pregnancy and interests to infuse our Hot Topic discussion, Dining Out with A Dietitian, Sexy Little Numbers, Digital Diva Reviews and Diabetes Numerology Game segments. Joining Mr. Divabetic for this one hour whirlwind of wellness are: Divabetic Image & Style Advisor,Catherine Schuller, Patricia Addie Gentle RN, CDE, Kathy Gold RN, CDE, Mama Rose Marie, the Digital divas(Taryan from Boston and Jessica from Cincinnati), Molly Lepeska from 100Campaign and Liz Wolff, the owner of CURE Thrift Shop in New York, NY who is living with type 1 diabetes.
