Side Effects Of Family Planning Injections For Diabetics?
are there any injection of side effects for DM sufferers?
Hello Ferry Rizykyawan, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Injectable type of KB, basically is a type of KB that is included in the hormonal contraceptive group, because this contraceptive method contains hormones (can contain a mixture of estrogen and progesterone (KB injection 1 month) or contains only progesterone hormones (KB injections 3 months)).
Both of these hormones themselves, have been widely studied regarding their interactions with blood sugar, the sensitivity of the body's cells to the hormone insulin and also other influences on the mechanisms in the body, especially those associated with people with DM. As is well known, that DM is divided into 2 types, namely DM type 1 and type 2 DM, where DM type 2, is one condition that is generally associated with hormonal side effects contained in hormonal birth control.
Some research states that both of these hormones, especially estrogen can reduce the sensitivity of the body's cells to the hormone insulin, the hormone needed to regulate blood sugar levels, so this condition will aggravate the condition in patients with DM because if there is interference with cell response on this hormone, the blood sugar will not be controlled properly.
Other research also states that the two hormones in birth control can affect blood viscosity and regulate body fat. This will affect indirectly on people with DM because one of the complications that can occur in this disease is heart disease. So if blood viscosity and also regulation of body fat are disrupted, it can increase the risk of heart disease in people with DM.
Therefore, for women who have DM, do have the same opportunity to use contraceptive injections or other hormonal birth control, but before using it is recommended to consult with your doctor first to ascertain whether the conditions allow or not use the KB. If you have used this hormonal birth control, it is highly recommended to carry out routine control to the doctor to monitor for side effects that may arise during use.
I hope this helps.
