Gestational diabetes


it relates to hormones of pregnancy and is not a lack of insulin but resistance to it. also 15% of gestational diabetes will convert to permanent diabetes. that s why is very important to get screened for it also after delivery.

diabetes can occur at any time. Pregnancy can bring out diabetes in someone who is at risk. Gestational diabetes is a condition in which sugars rise as a result of the pregnancy and typically requires treatment while pregnant, but many times resolves after pregnancy.

Diabetes can affect the developing baby throughout the pregnancy. In early pregnancy, a mother's diabetes can result in birth defects and an increased rate of miscarriage. Many of the birth defects that occur affect major organs such as the brain and heart. During the 2nd & 3rd trimester, a mother's diabetes can lead to over-nutrition & excess growth of the baby.
