Does gestational diabetes cause nausea?

Published on:

Mild nausea is a symptom of gestational diabetes. However, nausea during pregnancy can happen due to many other reasons. It is not advisable to conclude gestational diabetes only on the basis of nausea.

Your doctor will advise you to get screened for gestational diabetes around 24th-28th week of pregnancy. Women diagnosed with gestational diabetes experience mild symptoms that include nausea, blurred vision, weight loss, and vomiting.  Other signs of gestational diabetes include:

  • Feeling thirsty: You may want to drink water a lot, more that you usually do
  • Feeling fatigued: If you feel tired all the time
  • Having a dry mouth: It may go hand-in-hand with your increased thirst

If you have gestational diabetes, eating a regular-sized meal can make you feel nauseated. As the body is unable to use sugar for energy it breaks down fat and uses it as a source of energy. The by-product of this process are compounds known as ketones. Ketones help in building up in the blood and urine. Ketones are somewhat responsible to make feel more nauseous than what is normal if you have gestational diabetes.

Feeling extremely nauseated can be a sign of concern. It can mean that your gestational diabetes has gone uncontrolled. Consult your doctor immediately in such cases.
