TAKING CONTROL OF YOUR DIABETES® - THE PODCAST! ...With Expert Endocrinologists Living with T1D, Drs. Steven V. Edelman & Jeremy Pettus

Gestational diabetes is becoming increasingly common in the United States and around the world. Approximately 8% of pregnant women who deliver their babies in the U.S. have gestational diabetes at the time of birth, and that percentage doubles globally. Why is this so high? Our special guest Dr. Thomas Moore, an expert in gestational diabetes and head of the high-risk OB clinic at UCSD, explains who is most at risk for gestational diabetes, what the screening and diagnosis process involves, potential risks for mother and baby after diagnosis, and current treatment protocols. He also shares what typically occurs for mother and child after delivery.

In this episode, we will also talk about:
  • How does gestational diabetes differ from type 1 and type 2 diabetes?
  • Are there a certain number of nutrients that are needed for fetal development?
  • Why does a baby gain weight if a mother has high blood sugars during pregnancy?
  • What types of therapies are used to control blood sugars during pregnancy?
  • Can you get a CGM for gestational diabetes?
  • How aggressive do you need to be with blood sugar and A1c goals?
  • Can a baby experience hypoglycemia?
  • How does someone find a specialist in gestational diabetes?
