You're trying: To make it too simple.

My sister says she has gestational diabetes. Are family members more likely to get the same thing?
Maybe: Maybe so. Having gestational diabetes means that your sister is at increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes as she gets older.

Gestational diabetes? 3-hour glucose test said first number was high (203), but the other two were normal (in the 70's). I need a 2nd opinion! thanks!
Yes: Activity such as walking, or moderate exercise after meals can help lower sugars a bit, but women still need to follow the diet, check sugars, and possibly take meds. Don't think that "more exercise" (such as a marathon) is a substitute for the diet/medication treatment. While it was done, and we don't know exactly how much exercise is "safe", i'm not confident that a marathon is the best idea. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
