In brief: Sort of

Gestational diabetes often resolves shortly after delivery of the baby.
However, once you have gestational diabetes, you are at increased risk for developing type ii diabetes later in life.

In brief: Not without changes

It is a wake up call that you have Insulin resistance.
If you radically change your eating habits to change the bacterial flora in your GI tract by avoiding sugar and processed food that will help. Eating 6 small meals with high quality protein and lots of vegetables is another important change. Find out if you have low 25 oh vit d. Spend more time relaxing, get a good night sleep and walk.
