Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus In Pregnancy

General: Type 1 diabetes is a form of presentation of diabetes mellitus accounting for 5 to 10% of all cases of diabetes in the general population, he has also called Juvenile Diabetes because it is detected in childhood and adolescence. The age at which the diagnosis is variable and can range from the first year of life up to 13 or 14 years of age. In rare cases have been diagnosed in the first months of life. The term insulin-dependent, as it is also known for this condition is due to the origins of it, this is secondary to the destruction of insulin-producing cells in the pancreas called beta cells. This destruction in turn is a process believed to be acquired and secondary to the presence of infections (mostly viral) that attack the pancreas.

The body to detect the organism causing the infection, produces substances called antibodies to try to eliminate it. Unfortunately for reasons unknown, the antibodies also attack the infectious agents also just destroying its own cells (in this case the pancreas), this process is called AUTOIMMUNITY. Diabetes mellitus type 1 is thus an autoimmune disease. This results in lack of production of insulin in the body. The insulin is known is a hormone that is responsible for the introduction of glucose (sugar) into cells so that they in turn can be used as energy for all metabolic processes. It is therefore easy to deduce that if the hormone needed no one can enter the cells to glucose in the blood remains is increasingly at higher levels which is the most important factor in a person with diabetes (hyperglycemia).


Hypocalcemia: decrease of calcium in the blood that can be translated into colvulsiones Other potential risks include intrauterine growth retardation and the late death, occurring between 38-39 weeks (stillbirth) Follow-up: Despite the risks potential, our rate of live births, as well as in other parts of the world, is 85% and this is due to advances in fetal monitoring, which allows us to detect early complications, as well as improvement in types of insulin and as applicable, that allow us to better metabolic control during this important stage for the pair and their families. The Endocrinology service after the capture of the patients, averaging is performed at 18 weeks, on his first visit are asked a long history and they require testing laboratory aimed to evaluate metabolic control before and specialized medical evaluations to detect or rule out chronic complications. Then at each follow-up visit is recorded gestational age, and assesses the weight gain, blood pressure, blood glucose levels before and 2 hr after breakfast, the fetal etc. Depending on the quarter the quarter in which the patient is appointments are: in the first every 3-4 weeks in the second every 2-3 weeks and in the third week. All patients are invited to join the Self Help Group and Self-control of diabetes in pregnancy, in addition to being an educational program, allows us in the form of interactive workshop techniques to influence the implementation of insulin, emotional factors, medical or other measures that are participating negatively necessary to achieve optimal control in pregnancy as well as serve as a vehicle of integration into the patient and his family and others who are going through the same situation.
