The condition when a woman develops high blood sugar levels during pregnancy without prior diabetes is known as gestational diabetes. It increases the risk of pre-eclampsia and depression. Mothers having gestational diabetes may give birth to babies having jaundice and low blood sugar after birth. It can also cause stillbirth. Babies born in this condition are often too large and are at a higher risk of being overweight. A lack of insulin in the insulin resistance setting causes gestational diabetes. Other most common risk factors include previously having gestational diabetes, a family background of type 2 diabetes and polycystic ovarian syndrome. The diagnosis of gestational diabetes is based on blood testing. It is treated with a diabetic diet, exercise and insulin injections. This book provides comprehensive insights into gestational diabetes. It presents researches and studies performed by experts across the globe. It will serve as a valuable source of reference for graduate and post graduate students.
