Gestational Diabetes

Gestational diabetes is a type of diabetes in which a woman develops high blood sugar levels during pregnancy. Pregnancy hormones and increased fat deposits during pregnancy mediate insulin resistance during pregnancy. Pregnancy hormones compete with the insulin for the insulin receptor. Insulin resistance prevents glucose from entering the cells properly. As a result, glucose remains in the bloodstream, where glucose levels rise. It can be managed by exercise and a healthy diet. Insulin injections are the most common medical treatment for gestational diabetes. If gestational diabetes is not detected and controlled, it may increase the risk of birth complications, such as shoulder dystocia (when the baby's shoulder gets stuck during the birth). Babies of mothers with gestational diabetes may experience respiratory distress syndrome, hypoglycaemia and can also be large for their gestational age. Women with gestational diabetes are at high risk of developing diabetes mellitus later in life.
