Several studies point to arsenic as one possible cause of Gestational diabetes. In a study reported on in the journal Environment International in June 2015, scientists at the University of Montreal and several other research facilities in Canada, looked at arsenic and various other molecules in relation to the condition. A total of 1274 women were included in the study. Lead, mercury, cadmium, and arsenic were measured in blood taken from mothers in their first three months of pregnancy. Twelve more complex molecules were measured from the women's urine collected at the same time. Participants with the 25 percent highest amount of arsenic had 3.7 times the risk of developing Gestational diabetes than those with lower amounts. Other metals and compound molecules showed no association. From the above results it was concluded their research supports earlier studies linking arsenic with Gestational diabetes. In February 2015 the Environmental Health published an article on a study of metals in baby waste. Women at the Xiamen Maternity and Child Care Hospital in China compared waste from babies whose mothers had developed Gestational diabetes, with waste from babies of healthy pregnancies. It was found... the mothers whose baby scored in the top 25 percentile for arsenic had more than five times the risk of developing Gestational diabetes than those whose baby scored lower. those in the 50th percentile had 3.28 times the risk, and those in the 75th percentile had 3.35 times the risk of developing Gestational diabetes. The above results led to the conclusion exposure to arsenic could contribute to the development of diabetes during pregnancy. In 2009 Environmental Health Perspectives reported on a study conducted near a Superfund site (a site in need of environmental cleanup) in Oklahoma, USA. A quarter of the drinking water exceeded the World Health Organization's permissible level of 10 micrograms per liter of arsenic. It was found high levels of arsenic in pregnant women's blood and hair was associated with high blood sugar levels and Gestational diabetes. Contaminated drinking water is the usual route for arsenic to enter the body. One way drinking water can become contaminated is through the use of tube wells to release water from old mines. The resulting water, high in arsenic, is used for drinking. According to the World Health Organization, there are other ways as well... natural exposures include volcanic eruptions, dissolved minerals in groundwater, some vegetation, and dust, products such as agricultural pesticides, mining, smelting metal, burning fossil fuels, and treating wood with preservatives, foods such as seafood, poultry, mushrooms, rice and rice products, and tobacco. Here's to a clean environment. Although managing your disease can be very challenging, Type 2 diabetes is not a condition you must just live with. You can make simple changes to your daily routine and lower both your weight and your blood sugar levels. Hang in there, the longer you do it, the easier it gets.
