What is Gestational Diabetes?
Gestational diabetes is a type of diabetes that occurs only during pregnancy. Like other forms of diabetes, gestational diabetes affects the way your body uses sugar (glucose) — your body's main source of fuel. Gestational diabetes can cause high blood sugar levels that can threaten the health of your unborn baby. It is important to work with your health-care team to properly manage gestational diabetes.
