Maternal vitamin D deficiency is associated with an increased risk for gestational diabetes, according to a new study.
With diabetes in pregnancy raising the risk of a women developing pre-eclampsia, a dangerous condition characterized by high blood pressure and signs of damage to the liver or kidneys, every mother-to-be needs to be aware there are natural ways of preventing diabetes that are both safe and effective.
Dr. Rath’s scientific research and numerous independent clinical studies have clearly documented the important roles of vitamin C, vitamin E, B vitamins, magnesium and chromium in helping to prevent diabetes and normalize blood sugar levels. In one particularly striking example, a study published as long ago as 1937 showed that diabetic patients taking 300-500 mg of vitamin C a day could significantly improve their glucose balance. The researchers found that blood sugar levels could be lowered by an average of 30 percent, daily insulin requirements by 27 percent, and that sugar excretion in the urine could be almost eliminated. You can learn more about such studies in chapter 7 of Dr. Rath’s book, ‘Why Animals Don`t Get Heart Attacks…But People Do!’.
