Please settle a debate. Which came first; big babies or diabetes? My understanding was that having large babies was a sign of blood glucose issues.
What debate ?? Diabetes of pregnancy(gd) is a common pbm & signal that a woman will likely have adult onset diabetes in later life, but pregnancy brings it out, at least for the pregnancy. Babies make their own Insulin during pregnancy, so any poor control mom has is reflected in extra baby size & weight & possible need for IV fluids at birth. Mom's gd doesn't translate to a fat toddler or child , just a big start.
