You should be screened for gestational diabetes during your pregnancy. Your doctor will recommend an oral glucose tolerance test to screen gestational diabetes. This test is generally done between 24th to 28th weeks of pregnancy.

If you are at risk of gestational diabetes but do not take the screening test, gestational diabetes can’t be found and treated. As a consequence, this may increase the risk to you and your baby.

If you are diagnosed with gestational diabetes, your doctor will advice more health check-ups and recommend extra care during your pregnancy and labour.

In some cases, gestational diabetes can be controlled by making changes in diet and exercise, while others will need to take medication as advised by the doctor.
