Mother's Blood Sugar Linked to Kids' Obesity Risk

July 19, 2008

Anita Manning reported in USA Today that women with high blood sugar levels when they are pregnant are two times more likely to have obese children. This is according to the largest study on the same issue. This research is published in the September issue of the journal called Diabetes Care.

It is not all bad news though because Teresa Hillier, an endocrinologist and co-author of the study said that the tendency to have obese children is reversible when the high blood sugar is treated during pregnancy. Reversible is the word to note here.

Teresa Hillier and her colleagues at Kaiser Permanente's Center for Health researched 9439 mother-child pairs who were enrolled at the center's Hawaii and Regions in the Northwest from 1995 to 2000. The result of their examination is that the higher the mother's blood sugar, the greater is the chance for the child to be overweight by the time he is between 5 and 7 years old. They found this true for all ethnic groups.

The key thing to do is to get the child started on healthy lifestyles. Eating healthy is one that will benefit everyone in the family. Don't get the baby started on too much orange juice as it contains a lot of sugar. This has been the findings of the recent studies. Go easy on cookies too.

The other part of lifestyle to take note is to get the child started on some physical activity. I have seen babies in the swimming pool with their mothers. Then as soon as they are in their toddler years, you can get them started on T-ball games. Oh, they will not be too focused but at least they will be active and not become obese. And you will have fun watching them play. I know I have.
