Moving forward from gestational diabetes - the role and toll of high blood sugar

Diabetes is called a disease of complications because it's often hard to tell if a person has diabetes until their consistent high blood sugar causes complications in their body that are more visible: complications like stroke, heart disease, nerve damage, etc.

Even though gestational diabetes is for a small period of time, you are at higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes after birth, so it's beneficial to implement some parts of the gestational diabetic lifestyle even after birth, especially if you plan to have more children.
