Obesity Could Cause Reproductive Problems In Women With Type 1 Diabetes




A recent study has revealed that obesity may play a role in reproductive problems in women with type 1 diabetes.

Menstrual irregularity was associated with increased body mass index (BMI), high blood pressure, smoking and PCOS in this cohort.

Increased BMI may play a role in the development of PCOS, menstrual and reproductive problems

Pre-conception care and counselling in reproductive-aged women with type 1 diabetes, including weight management is necessary.
