Why do I have diabetes during my pregnancy?

27-28 weeks pregnant, Questions/answers

I just learned that I have gestational diabetes! I am really in shock! I don’t really understand why because I eat really well and don’t eat a lot of sugar. Why do I have diabetes during my pregnancy? Thank you, Marie. Anna


Anna, I am sure that is a surprise for you, but fortunately, today you can be closely monitored to make sure everything is fine for you and your baby. Understanding gestational diabetes takes more than a few lines, so please read the article I wrote about diabetes that occurs during pregnancy for more information.

Anna, il est certain que c’est toute une nouvelle pour toi, mais heureusement, de nos jours, on peut faire un suivi vraiment approprié à tes besoins et s’assurer que le tout se passe au mieux pour toi et ton bébé. Comprendre le diabète gestationnel (durant la grossesse) demande plus que quelques phrases, c’est pourquoi j’ai écrit un billet sur ce sujet pour informer davantage les futurs parents sur le diabète qui survient durant la grossesse.
