Gestational diabetes can occur at any stage within a pregnancy with symptoms subsiding once the pregnancy has ended. Gestational diabetes presents itself when a pregnant woman's body is unable to produce the higher levels of insulin required to remove sugar from the blood whilst pregnant.
The condition can be controlled through a mixture of diet and exercise, but will sometimes require medication to control. It is thought that gestational diabetes can lead to a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes in later life. Gestational diabetes is more likely to occur if you have had the condition before, are a smoker, have diabetes in your family, have a high BMI, have polycystic ovary syndrome or have previously given birth to a large weight baby (macrosomia).
