Dibetes Before and After Pregnancy
Posted Dec 14 2009 4:52am
Gestational diabetes (GDM) occurs during pregnancy and is usually diagnosed around 28 weeks. 4% of all pregnant women develop GDM. There are about 135,000 cases each year in the United States.
GDM usually goes away after you deliver, but will most likely return again with subsequent pregnancies. Sometimes, GDM will uncover diabetes that has been there before getting pregnant.
If you've had GDM, your risk for developing diabetes goes up. It is important to control your weight and develop healthy eating and fitness habits in order to delay or prevent type 2 diabetes.

• Extreme hunger
• Unusual weight loss
• Extreme fatigue and Irritability
Type 2 *
Any of the type 1 symptoms
• Frequent infections
• Blurred vision
• Cuts/bruises that are slow to heal
• Tingling/numbness in the hands/feet
• Recurring skin, gum, or bladder infections
*Often people with type 2 diabetes have no symptoms
It’s important to work with your doctor, dietitian and diabetes educator to keep your blood sugar in good control.
