Gestational Diabetes Webinar

Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is the development of diabetes in pregnancy, characterised by high blood glucose (sugar) levels. You won’t have any symptoms or feel ill with GDM, but your baby will be getting extra blood glucose and without careful monitoring from both you and your maternity team problems can arise.

FAQs

Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is the development of diabetes in pregnancy, characterised by high blood glucose (sugar) levels during your pregnancy.

GDM occurs during pregnancy when the hormone insulin is not being produced in the right amounts to match your body’s needs.

It can be worrying finding out that you have suddenly developed diabetes during your pregnancy, but in most cases, with changes to lifestyle it can be managed.
