Here is an excerpt:

“In approximately 6% of pregnancies the mother may develop Gestational Diabetes Mellitus or GDM. This is a condition in which blood sugar is abnormally elevated during pregnancy and generally develops because the pancreas cannot meet the extra requirements for insulin. Signs and symptoms of GDM are mild and mimic other signs of pregnancy: increased thirst, hunger, and urination. GDM has been linked to higher incidence of pre-eclampsia, primary c-sections, premature birth, and shoulder dystocia.

Infants born from diabetic mothers may need to have their blood sugar levels monitored for the first few days. These babies are more likely to develop low blood sugars as their bodies are now withdrawn from their mother’s continuous high glucose supply and are also more susceptible to jaundice, hypoglycemia, respiratory distress, type 2 diabetes later in life and excessive birth weight. Problems for the baby are generally related to the degree of severity of GDM in the mother.” © 2021 Augustine Colebrook All Rights Reserved
