The onset of a pregnancy is a major life event for a woman and the family and can be an emotionally overwhelming. It is also a time when the mother’s body undergoes significant physiological changes to accommodate the arrival of the child. Such significant changes in the body may also, at times lead to the onset of hormonal and metabolic issues like insulin resistance that translate into gestational diabetes. It may seem daunting then to be diagnosed with gestational diabetes during the pregnancy journey. However , with advancements in diabetes care technology, pregnant women with gestational diabetes can easily, and safely, keep a close eye on their glucose level fluctuations and effectively manage the condition to avoid any long term implications. Gestational diabetes is potentially temporary in nature if coupled with the right intervention but there can be a risk of this condition transitioning to type 2 diabetes if it is not properly managed.
