Diabetes Is Exacerbated In Younger Women By Sedentary Lifestyle.

DIABETES

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome is a common precursor to diabetes in younger women aged 20 to 30. (PCOS). Women with PCOS are frequently insulin resistant, which means their bodies can produce insulin but can’t use it properly, increasing their risk of type 2 diabetes and lowering the average age for this disease in women significantly lower than the conventionally assumed number of 45 years old.

“Both type 1 and type 2 diabetes are associated with menstrual irregularities and lower fertility rates,” said Nisha Pansare, fertility consultant at Nova IVF Fertility. Diabetes is now being diagnosed in young women during their reproductive years as a result of sedentary lifestyles. Diabetes increases the risk of infection and damage to reproductive organs such as the fallopian tubes in diabetic women.

Miscarriage or congenital defects in the foetus are caused by high blood glucose levels. Macrosomia can be caused by high blood glucose levels and excessive nutrition for the developing foetus (big baby syndrome). Many diabetic women have low sexual desire as a result of fatigue, depression, stress, and anxiety.”


“Factors such as being overweight, consuming a low-fibre and high-sugar diet, low level of physical activity, sedentary lifestyle due to work environments, and high levels of stress can significantly increase the chances of women in their 20s and 30s being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes,” said diabetologist Sushant Rajput.


According to the US Department of Health and Human Services’ Office on Women’s Health, 50 percent of women with PCOS develop diabetes or prediabetes before the age of 40. According to a 2017 study by the Endocrine Society, a global community focused on improving patient care and shaping effective policy, women with PCOS are four times more likely to develop type 2 diabetes than their non-PCOS peers.

Diabetes: Symptoms, treatment, prevention, and early diagnosis

“PCOS can also cause infertility and high blood sugar levels during pregnancy, which is referred to as gestational diabetes.” It can result in premature birth, large babies, miscarriages, and birth defects in the babies. Women with diabetes are more likely to develop urinary tract infections (UTIs) and vaginal yeast infections, and their periods may become longer and heavier due to changes in the menstrual cycle,” said Rajeshwari Pawar, consultant, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Motherhood Hospitals, Kharadi.


Supriya Kulkarni, a nutritionist, added, “The best way to keep blood sugar levels under control is to watch what you eat.” Avoid processed foods and fried snacks. Reduce your carbohydrate intake while increasing your fibre and protein intake by 50%.”
