Diabetes is a serious disease that, if left untreated, can lead to complications such as heart disease, kidney disease, blindness and amputation. Gestational diabetes is a kind of diabetes that affects pregnant women. Dr. Griffin Rodgers at the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases says…
Rodgers: In addition to regular screening for diabetes, women with a history of gestational diabetes can do a lot to prevent or delay their risk of developing diabetes after having their baby.
