In brief: Gestational diabetes

Gestational diabetes is a condition where women develop high blood sugar during pregnancy without a prior history of diabetes.
It is often without symptoms, but can be picked up during routine pre-natal screening. There is some risk to the baby if it is not treated, and there is some risk of the mother having diabetes after birth.
