What Is Gestational Diabetes?
Gestational diabetes is form of diabetes which only affects pregnant women. Diabetes is medical condition in which the pancreas does not produce enough insulin, which the body uses to convert glucose in the bloodstream into energy.
What causes gestational diabetes remains unknown. But some scientists believe this medical condition may be due to hormones from the placenta blocking the release of insulin from the mother's body.
What is known is that gestational diabetes often diverts additional glucose from the mother's body through the placenta into the baby's body. As a result, the baby's pancreas produces extra insulin, which results in more baby fat or a condition known as macrosomia.
