Chief Physician of Şanlıurfa Training and Research Hospital, Gynecology and Obstetrics Specialist. Dr. Alev Esercan and Şanlıurfa Training and Research Hospital Gynecology and Obstetrics Specialist. Dr. İsmail Demir made a statement on the occasion of World Diabetes Day.

Stating that diabetes has come to the fore as an increasing public health problem, Demir said, “One in every 10 adults in the world is struggling with diabetes. "Measures that can be taken to reduce the risk of diabetes include adopting a healthy diet, regular physical activity and maintaining a healthy body weight." said.

Demir stated that gestational diabetes can be detected by an oral glucose tolerance test performed between the 24th and 28th weeks of pregnancy and said, “If we cannot screen and follow up preventively in this way, gestational diabetes can cause serious complications, including the death of the baby in the womb. This is critical for us as it may lead to a cesarean section in patients whose abdominal circumference is too large. Please have your scans done along with the pregnancy sugar challenge test.” he said.

Chief Physician of Şanlıurfa Training and Research Hospital, Gynecology and Obstetrics Specialist. Dr. Alev Esercan stated that patients who previously had diabetes should definitely be seen by a gynecologist before getting pregnant and said:

“After being seen, their current sugar status will be evaluated. If they have high blood sugar, it may be necessary to postpone their pregnancy. Because we know that in pregnancies with high sugar levels, the rate of miscarriage, stillbirth, and harm to the mother and baby are high, and diabetes that occurs during pregnancy can sometimes continue after birth. Therefore, the patient who has diabetes after birth should come for a check-up again.”
