“Teen Mom” star Mackenzie Douthit has revealed on the show that she is diabetic, as she has type 1 diabetes. The diabetes do cause some concern for her pregnancy, which is why she decided to get pregnant now. According to a new Radar Online report published on Oct. 30, “Teen Mom” star Mackenzie Douthit is now revealing that she is very scared for her baby, because she could potentially slip into a coma when she goes into labor.
“My blood sugar could get so low that I pass out — and won’t wake up,” Douthit revealed to “Life and Style” magazine recently. Of course, it is no secret that she is suffering from diabetes and she was told by her doctor that her body would not be able to carry another baby after the age of 21, meaning she and Josh decided to have another baby.
And Mackenzie knows she is taking a chance by getting pregnant again. “I’m very scared. My doctors didn’t want me to go through this again, but really if you look at it in the long run, it’s way better to have kids young while my body’s still somewhat healthier than waiting until I was older,” she reveals. “If everything ends up going well, this baby will be a miracle,” she says. “My biggest thing is trusting in God. I think He’s gong to take good care of me.”
