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.

Learning Objectives:

Objective 1: Describe the pathway in which insulin regulates milk production through the stages of lactogenesis.
Objective 2: List 2 ways in which insulin resistance may negatively affect milk synthesis.
Objective 3: List at least two strategies for addressing low milk production related to insulin resistance.
