The AHA’s findings were based on a 20-year study of 900 women who were regularly tested for diabetes before and during their pregnancies. In total, 119 of the women developed gestational diabetes. The researchers found that these women were more likely to develop atherosclerosis, which involves plaque building up inside the arteries. In India 35-40% women, who develop Gestational Diabetes Mellitus, run the risk of developing type-2 diabetes within 5 years of delivery.

However, only 17.5% of women are aware of the disease and its complication, a new research has shown. Gestational Diabetes Mellitus is a form of diabetes which develops among women during pregnancy because the hormones secreted [ ]. Once you’ve had gestational diabetes, you’re more likely to develop it in future pregnancies. Between 30 and 60 percent of women with gestational diabetes will develop it again.

Following the advice to minimize the risk of diabetes also reduces the risk of developing gestational diabetes – another incentive to give it your best shot. There are many risk factors for developing GDM, though sometimes women with no known risk factors will develop GDM. This is why it’s important for all pregnant women between weeks 24-28 of pregnancy to have a Glucose Tolerance Test (GTT). Women more likely to develop GDM.

If you are overweight, especially if you weigh over 190 pounds before your pregnancy, you are at higher risk for recurrent gestational diabetes. Research shows that up to 20 percent of pregnant women suffer from gestational diabetes. Furthermore, studies suggest people with gestational diabetes are seven times more likely to develop type 2.

Mothers giving birth over the age of 35 may have an increased risk of developing gestational diabetes Advanced maternal age refers to women giving birth at the age of over 35. In the western world, advanced maternal age has been a clearly growing trend in recent years. In Finland, one in five women giving birth in 2013 were aged over 35. Most pregnant women do not go on to develop gestational diabetes, but some do.
