Diabetes in Pregnancy is a common condition in Asian Pregnant women.When a lady is pregnant body is producing lots of hormones which make a lady prone to develop this condition.Altered blood sugar level which usually gets back to normal once baby is delivered.Our Asian genes make us more prone to this condition.with ladies opting for Pregnancies at later age,this condition becomes more common.Ladies those who have PCOD are even more Prone to it.
A GTT around 24 to 26 weeks of Pregnancy is called for.A family history of DM is a strong risk factor.
And if you do develop GDM,don't panic.Exercise,diet control,metformin and insulin can be used to prevent the complications of this condition.
