Unlike other forms of diabetes, gestational diabetes lasts only as long as you are pregnant. This manual can help you understand what's happening to your body, how gestational diabetes is affecting you and your baby, and how it can be controlled.
Learn about the disease process and goals of treatment, risks to mother and infant, monitoring control, treatment plan including individualized meal plan and role of physical activity. Follow-up is available, as needed, with nurses and dietitians to maintain control throughout pregnancy and delivery.
The Pregnancy and Diabetes Clinic at United Hospital in St. Paul provides treatment and evaluation for women who have diabetes during their pregnancy (gestational diabetes).
