What Are the Symptoms and Signs of Gestational Diabetes?

Q:

My best friend was just diagnosed with gestational diabetes. All of us are so surprised !!! She is normal and healthy. Does gestational diabetes always come without any signs?

 

A:

I am afraid so. According to clinical research, only 10% of pregnant women can notice their gestational diabetes midway through their pregnancies.

Most of the mother-to-be are overwhelmed by their diagnosis of gestational diabetes. Rarely do the expectant mothers have the common diabetes signs like feeling thirsty, being tired and having a dry mouth. That’s why the screening is really important, which is usually conducted between your 24th and 28th weeks of pregnancy.
