History of Gestational Diabetes

I have had gestational diabetes on my second pregnancy. When I checked upon giving birth, it was all normal so I thought, I would not get it again. Just this week, I suspected to have an elevated glucose level. And after testing, I found out that, it was really elevated. Does it make sense? I have had normal level for quite sometime and now it is elevated. Anyone with similar experience??

What test did you have done? How old is your baby? Women who have a history of GDM do have an increased risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.

Hi Katelove! I have done a home glucose test last monday. BTW, my daughter is 28 months old and very healthy.

I will be seeing a doctor by monday and have myself tested. You are correct that I have a greater risk of developing diabetes. I made some research about it.

"Gestational diabetes usually resolves itself after your baby is born. However, if you have had gestational diabetes in one pregnancy, you are more likely to get it again in future pregnancies. You are also at a greater risk of developing Type 2 diabetes later in life and you will need to be regularly screened by your doctor throughout your life. You can reduce the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes by paying attention to what you eat and how much exercise you get."
