Gestational Diabetes

Most pregnant women get a test for gestational diabetes at 24 to 28 weeks of pregnancy.

If untreated, gestational diabetes can cause problems for your baby, like premature birth and stillbirth.

Gestational diabetes usually goes away after you have your baby; but if you have it, you’re more likely to develop diabetes later in life.

Talk to your health care provider about what you can do to reduce your risk for gestational diabetes and help prevent diabetes in the future.
