All About Gestational Diabetes

If you’re pregnant or have had a child, you probably remember the glucose test to measure your blood sugar and check for gestational diabetes. A condition that affects up to 10 percent of pregnant women each year in the United States, gestational diabetes causes high blood pressure and affects how your cells use sugar.

There is good news and bad news when it comes to gestational diabetes. The good news is that many women can manage it by eating well and exercising (and taking medication, if needed) to keep both mom and baby healthy.
