A clinical research done in Australia has found out that there is widespread deficiency of Vitamin D in pregnant women. They have also been able to find out that there is a co-relation between Vitamin D and gestational diabetes.
The retrospective study researched some 147 women in gestational diabetes clinics like the one present in Westmead Hospital. Out of the women who were considered, some 41 per cent showed the deficiency.
This is even more dangerous since lower Vitamin D is worse thing that can happen to blood sugar control for women. For the same, a study named ‘HbA1c’ is done. This helps in finding out the level of sugar for preceding two months as well.
One must know that Vitamin D in made under the skin when it is exposed to sunlight. Besides that even fatty fish, eggs, meat and rice are also rich sources that help in reducing the deficiency.
Australia is already facing tough times because of low-level of pregnancy and whether a woman has diabetes or not, lack of Vitamin D can have serious consequences for bone health and even the child.
