Gestational Diabetes: complications and treatment

This is a type of diabetes that some women get during pregnancy. Between 2 and 10 percent of expectant mothers develop this condition, making it one of the most common health problems of pregnancy. During pregnancy, the placenta makes hormones that can lead to a buildup of sugar in your blood. Usually, your pancreas can make enough insulin to handle that. If not, your blood sugar levels will rise and can cause gestational diabetes. You’ll have to make some lifestyle changes for that to happen. If diet and exercise aren't enough to keep you well, you may need to take medication to control your blood sugar levels or to inject insulin.
