No doubt does breastfeeding provides many benefits, not only for the growth and health of the baby, but also for nursing mothers. One of the benefits of breastfeeding is to protect infants from diabetic disorders. In fact a recent study showed the same effect also applies to her.
In that study shows that older mothers breastfed their babies will have a lower risk of developing diabetes. Although research is still far from the conclusions, but the researchers believe that breastfeeding can alter metabolism in nursing mothers. Changes in metabolism are known to help keep blood sugar levels stable and make the body more sensitive to the blood sugar-regulating hormone (the hormone insulin).
The theory is actually based in trials on mice and humans showing that breast-feeding mothers have high levels of blood sugar levels than mothers who are not breastfeeding. The research has also been published in the Journal of the American Medical, which involved about 157,000 nursing mothers. The mothers were then given questionnaires periodically and continued for about 12 years. During the study, known to many as 6277 participants with type 2 diabetes.
Women who breastfed for at least one year turned out to be 15% less likely to develop type 2 diabetes than those who were not breastfed. Keep in mind, for each additional year of breast-feeding apparently there was an additional reduction in the risk of diabetes by 15%.
