Healthy Living: Gestational Diabetes

A young mother is sharing her story to protect other moms with gestational diabetes.

It’s a type of diabetes that is first diagnosed during pregnancy.

It can affect both the mother and the baby’s health.

Previously, many people thought there was nothing to worry about after delivery.

But as Courtney Hunter explains in Healthy Living, that’s not the case.

Elkind-Hirsch recommends that anyone who has been diagnosed with gestational diabetes get bloodwork done after delivery and continue to be monitored by their doctor for diabetes and heart disease.
