What is gestational diabetes? Gestational diabetes (pronounced jess-TAY-shun-ul die-uh-BEET-eez) is a type of high blood sugar that only pregnant women get. In fact, the word “gestational” means pregnant. If a woman gets high blood sugar when she’s pregnant, but she never had high blood sugar before, she has gestational diabetes. Between 2 percent and 10 percent of U.S. pregnancies are affected by the condition every year,1 making it one of the top health concerns related to pregnancy. If not treated, gestational diabetes can cause problems for mothers and babies, some of them serious. But there is good news. Most of the time, gestational diabetes goes away after the baby is born. The changes in your body that cause gestational diabetes normally occur only when you are pregnant. After the baby is born, your body goes back to normal and the condition goes away. Gestational diabetes is treatable, and the best outcomes result from careful management and control of blood sugar levels. The best way to control gestational diabetes is to find out you have it early and start treatment quickly. Treating gestational diabetes—even if you don’t have any symptoms or your symptoms are mild— greatly reduces health problems for mother and baby.
What is Gestational Diabetes? Gestational diabetes occurs when your body cannot make adequate use of sugar in the blood. It is first found during pregnancy. Your blood sugar can become normal when your baby is born. Insulin is needed for your cells to use sugar as fuel for energy. Insulin is made in the pancreas. If you have diabetes, your pancreas is unable to match the insulin it makes to the amount of sugar in your blood. This causes you to have high blood sugar. • When your blood sugar is high during pregnancy, extra sugar goes to your baby. • Your baby gets extra calories from the sugar and stores them as fat. This can make your baby weigh more at birth and make delivery harder. • Your baby’s pancreas makes extra insulin to handle the high blood sugar from you. • After birth your baby keeps making extra insulin. This causes your baby to have low blood sugar. Your baby may have to stay in the hospital to get the blood sugar level back to normal. What does this mean for my pregnancy? You will need to keep your blood sugar at a normal level to help your baby grow well and stay healthy. If your blood sugar is high you may develop problems during your pregnancy. The problems can include: • High blood pressure (hypertension) • Delivering your baby by C-section (cesarean section) • Bladder infection (urinary-tract infection) What does gestational diabetes mean for my baby? Keeping your blood sugar at normal levels while you are pregnant will protect your baby and keep your baby growing well. But if your blood sugar stays high, your baby may: • have yellowish skin (jaundice). • be very large (macrosomia). • stay in the hospital extra days after birth with very low blood sugar (hypoglycemia). • have a difficult birth that causes shoulder problems (brachial plexus). • have breathing problems (respiratory distress syndrome).

Glucose is a sugar that is the body’s main source of energy. Health problems can occur when glucose levels are too high.
Dear Patient, The feelings that surround pregnancy—excitement, anxiety, and hope—often give way to many questions. Will my child’s eyes be blue or brown? When will I have my baby? How big will my baby be? What does the future hold for my family? Finding out that you have a “condition,” even a manageable one, can raise a different set of questions. Will my baby be healthy? Will the condition affect my ability to have other children? What can I do to ensure my own health and the health of my baby? For the last 40 years, the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) has been working to answer these types of questions through research and clinical practice to improve the health of mothers, children, and families. Managing Gestational Diabetes: A Patient’s Guide to a Healthy Pregnancy provides some general guidelines for keeping yourself healthy and for promoting the best outcomes for your baby if you have gestational diabetes. The booklet describes gestational diabetes, its causes, and its features and includes a general treatment plan to help control the condition. Using this information, you and your family can make informed decisions about your care. You will also be better able to work with your health care provider to develop a treatment plan that addresses your specific needs and situation to ensure that you and your baby are healthy. I hope this booklet helps you meet the challenges of gestational diabetes that you will face over the next few months, and that you will enjoy the new addition to your family when he or she arrives. Sincerely yours, Duane Alexander, M.D. Director, NICHD
My Gestational Diabetes Record • • • • • Take a few moments to write down foods you eat, your blood glucose, and your exercise. Showing this record to your health care provider can help you and your provider plan the care for your baby and you. Meals and Snacks: Write down the times you eat, what you eat, how much you eat and how it was prepared. Blood Glucose Readings: Test your blood in the morning before breakfast (fasting) and test 1 OR 2 hours after the start of your meal. Choose either a 1-hour OR 2-hour check and try to stick with testing at the same time after each meal. Circle the 1-hour OR 2-hour value so your provider will know at which time you checked. Exercise: Write down what you do and how long you do it. Notes: Write down anything else you think is important. Remember to review your records with your health care provider at your next appointment.
Who'd want to be friends with you? UNCLE VERNON I should think you'd be more grateful. We raise you since you were a baby, give you food off our table, even let you have Dudley's second bedroom... purely out of the goodness of our hearts. DUDLEY I thought he got the second bedroom because Mum was afraid he'd turn us into dung beetles if you put him back in the cupboard under the stairs. AUNT PETUNIA stops cold, exchanges a dark look with Uncle Vernon, then sees Dudley extending a finger for the pudding. AUNT PETUNIA Not yet, popkin. That's for when the Masons arrive. UNCLE VERNON Which should be any moment. Now. Let's run through our schedule one more time. Petunia, when the Masons get here, you will be -AUNT PETUNIA In the lounge, waiting to welcome them graciously to our home. UNCLE VERNON Good. And Dudley? DUDLEY I'll be waiting to open the door. UNCLE VERNON Excellent. (turning on Harry) And you? (CONTINUED)
