GESTATIONAL DIABETES OR DIABETES IN PREGNANT WOMEN Meaning

Gestational diabetes develops only during pregnancy. It causes high blood sugar which can affect your pregnancy and your baby’s health. It is usually diagnosed during the later stages of pregnancy and your blood sugar may return to normal soon after delivery. However, if you’ve had gestational diabetes before, you’re at risk for type 2 diabetes later in life.

In Ayurveda, diabetes is called madhumeha kshaudrameha which means “excessive urine with sweet taste like honey”. Diabetes is described as one of the 20 types of urinary diseases or pramehas which are classified based on the imbalance of predominant doshas of the individuals (10 due to kapha, 6 due to pitta and 4 due to vata), and physical appearance of urine. There is no direct reference of gestational diabetes mentioned in Ayurveda texts but the term ‘Garbha Vridhhi’ has been described as a complication related to the disease. In Garbha Vriddhi, there is excessive increase in size of abdomen and increased perspiration, making normal labour difficult.
