Q. What does the term ‘gestational’ diabetes mean? Hi, I was wondering what does having gestational diabetes mean because I have heard some friend of mine might have it.

A. Gestational diabetes is the term for diabetes that is discovered during pregnancy, and is triggered by it. Even though it may be transient, untreated gestational diabetes can damage the health of the fetus or mother. It affects about 1 in 50 pregnancies and is nowadays often diagnosed and treated early, thanks to the screening methods (glucose challenge tests) women undertake during their pregnancies.
