ABSTRACT:
The study investigated the effect of post prandial exercise on the blood sugar level of antenatal mothers with gestational diabetes mellitus. The Objective of the present study was to assess the fasting blood sugar and post prandial blood sugar level in antenatal mothers with gestational diabetes mellitus on the 1st and 6th day of post prandial exercise, evaluate the effect of post prandial exercise on blood sugar level, compare the level of fasting blood sugar and post prandial blood sugar on diet control group and insulin group and to find out the association between pre test of fasting blood sugar and post prandial blood sugar among antenatal mothers with selected variables. The study was based on General System Theory of Ludwig Von Bertalanffy. A one group pretest post-test design was adopted for the study. The sample size was 30 antenatal mothers with gestational diabetes mellitus admitted in Women and Children‘s Hospital Alappuzha, which was selected using convenient sampling technique. The tools used were structured interview schedule to assess the demographic and clinical variables, calibrated glucometer, procedure for post prandial exercise and check list for assessing post prandial exercise. Post prandial exercise was given 1hr 30 min after breakfast for 5 days and effect was assessed. The study revealed that the mean reduction in levels of FBS before and after intervention was 15.73 and the calculated t value 6.982 was significant at 0.01 level and the mean reduction in levels of PPBS before and after intervention was 22.17 and the calculated t value 5.096 was significant at 0.01 level. This shows that Post Prandial Exercise is effective in reducing the level of fasting and post prandial blood sugar among antenatal mothers with gestational diabetes mellitus. The chi-square value computed between pre test level of fasting blood sugar and previous information on exercise during pregnancy ?2= 3.913 was significant at 0.05 level. So the results shows that post prandial exercise is effective in reducing the level of fasting and post prandial blood sugar among antenatal mothers with gestational diabetes mellitus.
