Insulin is part of the Lactogenic Complex and Lactogenesis 2 cannot start without it. Until recently, however, we did not understand its role well. Emerging research is starting to shed light on specific roles for insulin in both pregnancy breast development as well as milk synthesis. Discover the how and why insulin resistance, type 2 and gestational diabetes can cause lactation problems, and what strategies may be helpful for affected parents.
