Is gestational diabetes hereditary?

Is gestational diabetes hereditary?

Yes, but partially: Gestational diabetes, which is often a precursor to type 2 diabetes, has a strong hereditary genetic component. The tendency for the body to be insulin-resistant and insulin-deficient (leading to high sugars) are often transmitted in the genetic make-up. However, gestational diabetes is also strongly related to other non-hereditary factors like age, weight, physical activity levels, and diet habits. ...Read more

Solution for isolated systolic hypertension 158/70 and triglycerides 220? Total cholesterol normal, not overweight, daily exercise, healthy diet.

It is unlikely: that you will be able to modify these abnormal findings without additional pharmacological intervention. An extreme diet of withholding sodium (<1gm) and very low carbohydrate might help but would be unpleasant. Your health care provider should be able to advise you and prescribe additional medication that will allow you to improve the numbers while still living an acceptable life style. ...Read more

1trimester pregnant,did CBC found this ( chol 8,3.LDL 5,3.AHDL 2,13) am less than perfect weight, amI in danger?could this cause diabete hypertension?

Lost in translation: A CBC is a lab test of your red & white blood cell count. It checks for anemia, infection and blood cancers. It doesn't check cholesterol. Maybe you meant "complete blood chemistry" which would include cholesterol. However, we use different units for cholesterol in U.S., so I can't interpret your numbers. In any case, being underweight or overweight can affect you & your pregnancy. ...Read more

400 lbs, 5'9". Perfect blood pressure & blood sugar. High insulin and testosterone levels. Abnormal weight gain since childhood. Strict diet. Why????

Other Labs?: I hope your thyroid has been checked and is normal. Although typically those with low thyroid causing weight gain are short and you are rather tall! It is probably a simple matter of more calories taken in than you are burning off which is putting you in a positive calorie balance resulting in weight gain. Drink only water, eat 8 fruits and veggies daily and ramp exercise to 10,000 steps daily ...Read more
