This means that blood sugars need to be controlled round the clock throughout pregnancy. An experienced dietician will restrict simple carbohydrates, distribute meals skilfully with frequent snacking, include more fibre and strictly monitor caloric intake to avoid excess weight gain. Vigorous exercises and skipping meals may cause a sudden dip in sugar level (hypoglycemia), which is dangerous to both mother and foetus. “Many women need to take oral anti-diabetic medications, including insulin injections, which can be self-administered.

GSMA mHealth Grand Tour Highlights How mHealth Can Prevent Diabetes
The mHealth Grand Tour is a first-of-its-kind observational study designed by Professor Michael Trenell, NIHR Senior Research Fellow and Director, MoveLab, Newcastle University, into the effects of multi-day endurance exercise on blood glucose levels, using data captured and transmitted wirelessly through a multi-vendor mHealth solution. The study will track the health and cycling performance data of elite and sub-elite athletes with type 1 diabetes, as well as cyclists without diabetes. For the observational study, a Dexcom continuous glucose monitor worn by the riders and sensors on their bike computers transmit statistics over the ANT+ protocol to Sony Mobile handsets, so riders can track their own progress. The sensors also transmit the stats to a HMM module that is part of a complete Orange solution that in turn sends them over mobile broadband to a live website and to the cloud, for later download by the observational study team. The website will contain a McCann Health data visualisation portal for tracking the riders stats and an Orange geolocation portal for tracking the riders progress.
