In brief: A study in British

Medical journal cited tests implying that adhd and perhaps learning disabilities may be more common among children born to mothers with gestational diabetes.
However, the differences in the results of these tests tended to disappear in the older index group children. The significance is uncertain and further study is necessary. Seek evaluation for any concerns. Best regards.
