Gestational Diabetes Symptoms

Gestational diabetes is a specific type of diabetes that can develop during a woman’s pregnancy. Most women do not experience noticeable signs of gestational diabetes, which makes the gestational diabetes screening test during pregnancy very important.

In rare situations, women may feel symptoms of excessive thirst or even urinating often. Often, women with gestational diabetes are overweight before the pregnancy. Others may have diabetes in the family. Although symptoms of gestational diabetes are rare and may be unnoticeable, it is important to seek help before and during your pregnancy.

If you already have diabetes and plan to become pregnant is very important to work with your health care provider to be sure your diabetes is in control prior to becoming pregnant and during your pregnancy.
