If you are diagnosed with gestational diabetes during your pregnancy, there are chances that your diabetes will go away soon after your baby is born. If you control your gestational diabetes by following a proper diet plan and exercise during pregnancy your diabetes will go away completely after delivery. After the baby is born, you should continue to check your blood glucose levels for some days to make sure your diabetes is actually gone. Most women who have gestational diabetes and receive treatment deliver healthy babies. Complications arise when blood glucose levels are not properly controlled. If gestational diabetes is not controlled, there are chances that you can develop type 2 diabetes soon after delivering the baby. However, you can reduce this risk by following a good diet plan, exercising, and maintaining a healthy weight.
