Gestational diabetes is a type of diabetes that is diagnosed during pregnancy. It affects how your body processes glucose (sugar), and requires specialized treatment. About 4% of women develop gestational diabetes. It is usually diagnosed in the second half of the pregnancy, and almost always goes away as soon as your baby is born.
