Hello, Wisdom. Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Gestational diabetes mellitus is diabetes that begins to occur during pregnancy. Diabetes can be detected with blood sugar levels that are higher than normal. The hormone that works to regulate blood sugar levels is called the hormone insulin. Gestational diabetes occurs because the body cannot produce enough insulin to meet the increased insulin needs of pregnant women. Gestational diabetes often occurs in women who are obese, have a history of giving birth to a large baby (birth weight 4.5 kg or more), have had previous gestational diabetes, and have parents or siblings with diabetes. If you have one of these factors, you should check your blood sugar levels when you first visit the doctor to check your pregnancy. If you have gestational diabetes, you should be routinely examined by an obstetrician to avoid the various complications that can occur. During pregnancy, set a healthy diet and increase physical activity.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
