In brief: You can't

You can't make it go away.
But with proper treatment you can get it under control. See your physician (or a diabetes specialist) and have them help you manage your gestational diabetes. There is a solution...Delivery. Otherwise, i agree with the above. Typically people with gestational diabetes don't develop diabetes after pregnancy.

In brief: Gestational diabetes

Gestational diabetes goes away with delivery.
Since gestational diabetes is a marker for type ii diabetes, it is recommended that women be tested post-partum for diabetes.
