Gestational Diabetes is a condition in which your blood sugar levels become high during pregnancy.

It affects up to 10% of women who are pregnant in the US each year. It affects pregnant women who haven't ever been diagnosed with diabetes.

There are classes of gestational Diabetes. Women with class A1 can manage it through diet and exercise. Those who have class A2 need to take insulin or other medications.

Gestational Diabetes goes away after you give birth. But it can affect your baby's health, and it raises your risk of getting type 2 diabetes later in life. You can take steps so you and your baby stay healthy.

Gestational Diabetes symptoms

Women with Gestational Diabetes usually don't have symptoms or may chalk them up to pregnancy. Most find out that they have it during ng a routine screening.

Gestational Diabetes causes

You may notice that you are thirstier than usual, you are hungrier and eat more than usual and you pee more than usual.

When you eat, your pancreas releases insulin, a hormone that helps move a sugar called glucose from blood to your cells, which use it for energy.

During pregnancy, your placenta makes hormones that cause glucose to build up in your blood. Usually, your pancreas can send out enough insulin to handle it.

But if your body can't make enough insulin or stops using insulin as it should, your blood sugar levels rise, and you get gestational Diabetes.
