Gestational Diabetes Risk Assessment Help

Gestational diabetes affects about 4% of pregnant women, when the hormones from the placenta make the mother insulin resistant. Prenatal care is especially important for women with gestational diabetes risk factors. Good control of diabetes during pregnancy ensures the well being of mother and baby. Gestational diabetes can usually be controlled with a balanced, healthy diet, exercise, and insulin when needed. Many women who have gestational diabetes also develop Type 2 diabetes years later and babies born to a mother with gestational diabetes have an increased risk of developing diabetes later in life. Take this quick assessment to learn the risk factors for gestational diabetes and help you determine your own risk of developing gestational diabetes.
