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.

Had gestational diabetes in a previous pregnancy. If your first baby was overly large at birth, you are more likely to have gestational diabetes in the future. Your weight.

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.

As with type 2 diabetes, a combination of genes, environment, and lifestyle factors are likely in play. Many women who. You’re more likely to get gestational diabetes if you: Were overweight before you got pregnant Are African-American, Asian, Hispanic, or Native American Have blood sugar levels that are higher than.

Approximately 2-5% of pregnant women develop gestational diabetes; this number may increase to 7-9% of mothers who are more likely to have risk factors. The screening for this disease usually takes place between your 24th and 28th week of pregnancy.

List of related literature:

Not only are pregnant women with type 2 DM likely to be older, more obese and belong to an non-white ethnic minority, they are also more likely to have higher levels of social deprivation than either women with type 1 DM or the general antenatal population without diabetes [1,2].

  • Thank you for this! Wife has just been diagnosed with this so we’re a bit gobsmacked and stunned atm… this video put our minds st easy ��������

  • There are several ideas worth trying
    eat one meal per day made with bitter melon
    fresh mango leaves tea
    eat bitter gourd daily this contains an insulin type compound
    (I read these and why they work on Ralfs Remedy Method website )

  • Warning: Don’t take Glyburide for gestational diabetes. Glyburide is counter-indicated (not recommended) by the FDA for pregnancy unless absolutely necessary, due to some adverse effects in rats, plus the possible side-effect of neonatal hypoglycemia. Insulin is 100% safe for pregnancy, however, so it’s a much better option. Please do your own research.

  • just found out I have to be retested because my glucose test came back abnormal so I have to do the 3 hour process..made my day sad finding out this news…but I’m willing to do whatever for my twin girls to make sure they ok.

  • Hi Paul. In 2nd trimester visit lecture OGTT cut off mentioned is 140 at 1 hour. And here it’s 130. If you can please clear the confusion.
    By d way, many thanks for your gr8 lectures.

  • Quick update for Aussie students/drs:
    as per latest RANZCOG, the recommended screening regime in Australia is a 75 gram two-hour Pregnancy Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (POGTT). GDM is currently diagnosed by a fasting glucose level of >= 5.5mmol/L OR a 2-hour level >= 8.0mmol/L.

    Thanks Paul for all these awesome videos!

  • It doesn’t matter if you would like to raise your fertility or perhaps your partner’s fertility, you can do it and never have to intervene with medical procedures. Merely try googlng Dobbie Nerkstrol’s homepage. It talks about a technique you can use to get pregnant within just 4-8 weeks.

  • This video is very informative. It explains how gestational diabetes develops in a very simple way, and it give one key way to prevent it (maintain a healthy diet). As a future midwife, this video is a good reference for me to use when it comes to teaching my future patients.

  • I have helped manage my diabetes with bitter lemon as well as a few other things like cinnamon and diabno (check “diabno” on google for info). With these little additions to your diet it can be simple to get your sugar levels sorted…

  • Good clear video, question about the rule of 15s though. If 15% women are positive on screening test and then if those 15% test positive for GDM that’s just over 2% of women overall. But how does that square with 6%of pregnant women in US having GDM? or is my maths just rubbish ��

  • I want to add some points

    -if the OGCT is 200 and above u dont need to do the fasting OGTT.

    -in case of the first step in management with the diet modification you can also recommend moderate aerobic exercises.

    -for the delivery there is no harm to wait for spontaneous delivery of diabetes is well controlled and the fetus is doing well.

    -for the postpartum follow up.
    At 6-12 weeks postpartum they should be tested for overt diabetes with the 75g OGTT.
    Pregnancy is a diabetogenic state. So pregnancy is a good screening test actually for developing overt diabetes.

  • You will soon experience the overjoyed feeling like I did when I at last managed to get rid of diabetes within a few weeks, no matter what people say how challenging it could be to get over type 2 diabetes.

  • If you`d like to get rid of diabetes and want to change to a healthier life-style, then you could rely on this “Vαnοjο Fivu” (Google it). The manual have taught me regarding how cells are not able to feed on glucose due to fat. ”Vαnοjο Fivu” (Search Google) has helped me cure diabetes and prevent its serious and even fatal effects..

  • If you wish to eliminate diabetes and want to switch to a more healthy way of living, then you can rely on this “Vαnοjο Fivu” (Google it). The manual have taught me concerning how cells are not able to feed on glucose because of fat. With “Vαnοjο Fivu” (Search Google), I was able to avoid the destructive effects of diabetes to my human body, and ultimately, demise…

  • @24piciana
    I failed the 1 hour glucose tolerance test, and they did not even bother to do another test, I was sent to a diabetic clinic and monitor my blood sugar level each day. So far I am able to control my blood sugar level with diet. good luck hope everything is ok with u.

  • Guys, Thanks for sharing that wonderful program…I’m extremely happy to report, my blood tests are now showing that I am completely free of diabetes. Saying thank you does not seem to be strong enough.
