  • I would definitly keep an eye out and do the tests. I am a diabetic and have had it for 15 years. My sisters are not diabetic but the had gestational diabetes with all of their children. More likely you wil have it again, but remember to keep your blood sugars under control and try to keep away from real starchy foods that will raise blood sugars. Eat plenty of veggies and natural foods. I wish you luck.

  • Didn't have it with my 1st but did with my 2nd but my age and that I am a bit overweight didn't help.

  • Check out Dr. Brewer's pregnancy diet, it's had a great success rate at preventing common pregnancy illnesses, GD being one of them.
