For almost all women, gestational diabetes is asymptomatic. This means that it has no apparent symptoms. This is why consistent testing and observation is important for women who are pregnant.
Gestational diabetes can be detected with a few different tests. These include a glucose challenge test, which is used to measure blood sugar levels and glucose intolerance testing, which does the same. Blood glucose tests provide the best indicator of a case of gestational diabetes.
If gestational diabetes is detected, treatment will be provided. While there is no cure for gestational diabetes, it is temporary and many options are available to mitigate symptoms and protect the health of the mother and child.
It is not known why some women are so much more likely to develop gestational diabetes than others. Part of the issue may stem from the hormone changes created by pregnancy. Some of the key hormones generated by the reproductive system can have the unwanted side-effect of blocking insulin.
Certain risk factors also make a woman more likely to develop gestational diabetes during pregnancy. These complications include:
Once discovered, there is no way to eliminate gestational diabetes. This means that gestational diabetes treatment instead focuses on controlling the problem. Some methods of gestational diabetes treatment include:
Gestational diabetes typically subsides a few weeks after the pregnancy is complete. After that time, regular habits can resume. It's important to understand that a woman having gestational diabetes puts her at a much higher risk to contract Type-2 diabetes, however.
Because of this increased risk, maintaining healthy eating and exercise habits after pregnancy is incredibly important.
Gestational diabetes can seem frightening or confusing, but many different treatment plans are available. Request more information about gestational diabetes today: call (408) 946-9453 or contact us online.
