Academic Journal
The article analyzes a study that supports the notion that a long-term breast feeding has a protective effect on later overweight risk in offspring of diabetic mothers (ODM). The fuel-mediated teratogenesis concept stated that prenatal exposure to increased levels of glucose and mixed nutrients and the corresponding increase in fetal insulin have immediate and long-lasting deleterious consequences for ODM. The article concludes that population-wide detection and adequate treatment of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) should be performed.
