Gestational Diabetes

Every year in the United States approximately 5% or 135,000 pregnant women are diagnosed with gestational diabetes. Gestational diabetes (or gestational diabetes mellitus, GDM) is a condition in which women without previously diagnosed diabetes exhibit high blood glucose levels during pregnancy. It is usually detected during the 24th or 25th week of pregnancy. Gestational diabetes is fully treatable but requires careful medical supervision throughout the pregnancy.
