Physical Exercise in the type 2 or NIDDM & GDM Pregnancies

Physical Exercise in the type 2 or NIDDM & GDM Pregnancies:

Regular physical exercise if allowed by the obstetrician is permitted but there is no scientific evidence that it improves either the outcome of these Pregnancies or in reducing caesarean section rates.

However, a regular 20 minutes relaxed walk morning and evening in these women (excluding those with complications) would definitely help glucose control in the NIDDM group and prevent undue weight gain in the GDM group. The reader is referred to the position statement on exercise by the American College of Obs. & Gynecology, which found no evidence to support the popular view that exercise improves outcome of Diabetic Pregnancies.
