Diabetes cause fetus damage: Diabetes is a big problem for the world. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 422 million people in the world are suffering from diabetes. Every year 16 lakh people die due to diabetes. According to statistics, there are about 60 million women of childbearing age who are suffering from diabetes. ht According to the news of diabetes, men can confine this disease to themselves, but if women get this disease, then it can be fatal for the child growing in the womb. This has come to the fore in a study.
According to this study published in the journal Science Advances, if the mother is suffering from diabetes, then the fetus growing in her womb can be permanently damaged.
neural tube failure
According to the study, more than 60 million women of birth age in the world are suffering from diabetes. Their number in America alone is three million. Every year 3 to 4 lakh such embryos develop in the womb, whose mother has a neural tube defect due to diabetes. Neural tube defect is a type of disorder that occurs in the very early stages of pregnancy. In this, the tissues that make up the brain and spinal cord are not made. If this happens, either a miscarriage occurs or the child becomes permanently disabled after birth.
premature loss of neural tissue
Researchers at the University of Maryland School of Medicine tried to understand the process of this structural birth defect in a study done on rats. The researchers said that neural tissue reaches its final stage prematurely, due to which cells are not able to make neural tubes. Lead author Dean Rees reported that women with diabetes were five times more likely to suffer fetal loss. Therefore, it is now necessary to develop new methods for giving birth to a healthy baby from the very beginning in mothers with diabetes.
