Yoga intervention may have a profound and positive impact on reducing the risk and treatment on blood sugar levels among pregnant women, the Prince of Songkla University study suggested.
Yoga, the ancient technique for harmonized external and internal body well beings, through breath control, meditation, bodily movement, and gesture..... has been best known for people in the Western world and some parts in Asia due to health benefits reported by various respectable institutes' research and supported by health advocates.
In a randomized controlled trial carried out to measure the capillary fasting plasma glucose, 2-h postprandial blood glucose, and hemoglobin A1c, among pregnant women with GDM, after accounting to other co-founders, researchers indicated that fasting plasma glucose and 2-h postprandial blood glucose significantly reduced and glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c), accepted as an indicator for evaluation of the glucose control in diabetes mellitus (DM) patients also decreased substantially.
Indeed, yoga mindfulness program created a self-consciousness between body and mind, by bringing back the presence and dealing with the event positive way. In pregnant women, the exercise-induced attention of eating control such as when the stomach is full and what portion is needed. The breathing exercises relaxed the central nervous system, thus ameliorating stress expression in stimulated production of hormone epinephrine which is found to associate to blood sugar levels by converting glycogen from glucose stored in muscle cells and liver.
Prolonged stress may induce failure of the adrenal gland leading to overproduction of stress hormone in the induction of abnormally high blood glucose.
Dr. Youngwanichsetha S, the led researcher said, "Mindfulness eating and yoga exercise had health benefits on glycemic control in pregnant women with GDM".
Additionally, in the support of the above differentiation, researchers at the SVYASA University conducted a study of 68 high-risk pregnant women recruited from two maternity hospitals in Bengaluru, India and randomized into yoga and control groups. with the yoga group (n=30) received standard care plus one-hour yoga sessions, three times a week, from the 12th to the 28th week of gestation and control group (n=38) received standard care plus conventional antenatal exercises (walking) in the same period, researchers found that yoga group expressed a significantly fewer pregnancy-induced gestational diabetes (GDM) and cases in compared to control and induced fewer complications in yoga group, including small for gestational age (SGA) babies and newborns with low APGAR scores.
Truly, breathing and meditation practice in yoga was found to induce a strong implication of relaxation and oxygenation to the pancreas, thus increasing the pancreas function in the regulation of blood glucose through insulin secretion.
Some yoga instructors also suggested that mindfulness in yoga lesson also improved blood sugar levels by bringing back the natural state of self conscientiousness of present experience of more aware of hunger and satiety cues, and emotional impact on hunger particularly enhanced the more positive relationship and feeling to food.
After examining other risk factors, the study concluded, yoga only can reduce the risk of unfavorable complications, including gestational diabetes mellitus in this group of women but also demonstrated significant improvement of pregnancy outcome.
More importantly, in the searching of the database from PubMed, eight studies (10 reports) satisfied the criteria included in the final analysis, researcher postulated that yoga intervention not only reduced risk of gestational diabetes mellitus, also improved pregnancy-related complications, such as hypertension, and intrauterine growth restriction, particularly, decrease in perceived stress levels.
Taking all together, Yoga therapy not only reduced risk of gestational diabetes mellitus in healthy women and improved glucose levels in women with gestational diabetes mellitus but also enhanced pregnancy outcome.
