Risk of your baby getting diabetes

  • Your baby isn't at risk for developing diabetes simply because of your gestational diabetes.

    If you follow the guidelines for managing your gestational diabetes and maintain a normal blood glucose level during pregnancy, your baby is less likely to be predisposed to obesity and type 2 diabetes later in life.
