In brief: Get healthy after...

Gestational diabetes puts you at a significantly higher risk for type 2 diabetes in the future.
The rest, however, is up to you. Many women avoid ever getting diabetes because they eat right, lose weight after the baby, change their eating habits and get healthier than ever. Gestational diabetes can be a great wake-up call for your health. With hard work you may avoid future diabetes !
