Did you know that diabetes has an associated risk to fertility?
Diabetes is a condition where the body is unable to maintain blood glucose levels within the normal range. Diabetes can affect anyone. Eating a healthy diet and regular exercise is crucial to control blood glucose levels.
When diabetes isn't controlled, it can affect a person’s fertility levels.
In women, diabetes may result in irregular or absent menstrual cycles. It can also increase the danger of miscarriage and stillbirth, cesarean delivery and other such complications.
In men, it can cause problems in attaining and maintaining erections. It can also lower the levels of testosterone (the male hormone).
The good news is that diabetes is manageable and blood glucose levels can be regulated, through lifestyle changes and medication. It involves regular monitoring of blood glucose levels, eating a healthy diet, regular physical activity, maintaining a healthy weight range, reducing stress and anxiety, and quitting smoking. Medication may be needed in some cases.
