Gestational Diabetes

Gestational Diabetes

  • A study examining chromium excretion during pregnancy found that persistently elevated excretion in normal pregnancies seemed to be associated with a significant reduction in insulin sensitivity. In turn, it was speculated that enhanced chromium excretion had the potential to put a mother at increased risk of developing gestational or post-partum diabetes.

  • Impairment of glucose tolerance induced by pregnancy may be associated with a low chromium status.Davidson IWF, Burt RL. Physiologic changes in plasma chromium of normal and pregnant woman; effect on glucose load. Am J Osbtet Gynecology 1973; 116:601-8.
  • Chromium supplementation for gestational diabetic women improves glucose tolerance and lowers hyperinsulinemia.Lois Jovanovic, Mario Gutierrez, Charles M. Peterson. Chromium supplementation for women with gestational diabetes mellitus. J Trace Elem Exper Med 1999;12:91-97.
  • Clinical trial proved that GT&F® can help reducing plasma glucose and plasma insulin.Dee Pei, Chang-Hsun Hsieh, Yi-Jen Hung, Jer-Chuang Li, Chien-Hsing Lee, Shi-Wen Kuo. The influence of chromium chloride-containing milk to glycemic control of patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus: a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial. Metabolism 2006; 55:923-927.

CLINICAL TRIAL

GT&F® Significantly Reduce Plasma Glucose
After 16 weeks, fasting plasma glucose was
significantly reduced in Type 2 Diabetes.
GT&F® Significantly Reduced Plasma Insulin
After 16 weeks, fasting plasma insulin was
significantly reduced in Type 2 Diabetes.
