Symptoms of Gestational Diabetes


Often women with gestational diabetes exhibit no symptoms. Screening glucose challenge test is a preliminary screening test performed between 26-28 weeks. However, symptoms of gestational diabetes are similar as Type II diabetes. It includes increased thirst, increased urination, fatigue, nausea and vomiting, bladder and yeast infection, and blurred vision.

Gestational Diabetes – Risk of diabetes in Future:

Gestational diabetes is only a temporary phase, it disappears after pregnancy. But once you are diagnosed with gestational diabetes, your chances are 2 in 3 that it will return in future. It is hard to tell whether the particular woman has diabetes due to gestational diabetes or type 2 diabetes. There seems to be a link between the tendency to get gestational diabetes and type 2 diabetes. Gestational diabetes and type 2 diabetes both involve insulin resistance.

Risk factors for gestational diabetes include:

  • Strong family history of type 2 diabetes
  • Mother’s age - a woman is at higher risk if she is aged at the time of pregnancy
  • Obesity
  • Fallen prey to gestational diabetes in previous pregnancy
  • A previous pregnancy that resulted in a child with a birth weight of 9 pounds or more
  • If you are diagnosed with prediabetes, impaired glucose tolerance, or impaired fasting glucose
