Diabetes During Pregnancy

Resource Properties

Abstract:

This three-page handout educates women who are pregnant about diabetes during pregnancy, which is also called gestational diabetes. It explains that persons with diabetes have blood glucose (blood sugar) levels that are too high, and a mother with the disease does not make enough insulin for the amount of glucose that both she and her baby need for energy. It clarifies that the mother may not experience any signs, and recommends glucose testing during pregnancy. The document lists health problems for the baby that gestational diabetes can cause, provides tips for the mother to keep her blood sugar under control, and discusses managing health and further risks after the baby is born.
