Gestational diabetes

Hormones in the placenta can develop diabetes at the time of pregnancy. The treatment for gestational diabetes is a very strict diet as for carbohydrates. Not very often but insulin injections are necessary. A woman who has gone through diabetes in the gestation period must be put under a rigorous control. She has risks of suffering diabetes in coming years after childbirth or of having it again in future pregnancies.
