Gestational Diabetes Review: Maternal-fetal Comorbidities and Treatment with Medicinal Plants
European Journal of Medicinal Plants,
Gestational Diabetes is a condition characterized by hyperglycemia that provides a drop-in insulin performance in its appropriate receptors by hormones secreted by the placenta and fetus. The main fetal comorbidities are macrosomia, growth disorder, and congenital and maternal anomalies in gestational diabetes, preeclampsia, vascular injury, and post-gestational diabetes. This study addressed the possible treatments with medicinal plants in gestational diabetes. Medicinal plants that have the diabetic purpose were researched, however, many pregnant women use and do not know the effects that can happen for the fetus and also for itself, the plants used for this work is not satisfactory for pregnant women with diabetes, but for non-diabetics, some are beneficial for treating this pathology. It becomes necessary for people to know the effects of plants that are used to treat certain types of diseases because most often in great excess can be fatal. All of them presented satisfactory results in a study for diabetes mellitus in non-pregnant patients, but the study presented by Cow's Paw (Bauhinia forficata l.) in pregnant rats with diabetes showed harmful results in embryo implantation and there was no glycemic control, which leads us to investigate further under the use of all plants in the treatment of gestational diabetes.
