Abstract:

Insulin plays a major role in lactation, yet our understanding of how it works has not been well understood. As diabetes rates soar, so do questions on how insulin problems may impact lactation. New research is starting to shed light on these questions, opening both our understanding and our ability to work more proactively with affected mothers. This session will examine the role of insulin, our newest understandings, implications for mother and strategies to support mothers at risk.
