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).

Jimtown Store sometimes makes this steak, not to serve hot off the grill, but cold, in sandwiches ³buttered² with Jimtown Store¹s Asian Peanut Spread. ³We grill London broil, skirt or flank steak. It¹s a simple thing, but the bourbon bath, followed by the heat of the grill, transforms the beef into something ambrosial.², says Carrie. Dad is sure to love the steak dressed with a generous dollop of Jimtown¹s Asian Peanut Spread. Serves 6 with leftovers. Next, add the meat to the marinade: 1 2-inch thick top round steak (about 2 1/2 pounds) Cover & refrigerate 8 hours, turning once or twice.

Language, culture and availability make finding animal-free nosh a massive ordeal that can swallow up a whole afternoon of your hard-earned vacation/travel time. And when your blood sugar starts to dip, after a long bus ride or a day traipsing around some ruins, the difficulty and frustration involved in finding vegetarian food can wreck your day.
