The Swiss Society of Obstetrics and Gynecology said that gestational diabetes is one of the most common diseases during pregnancy, explaining that hormonal changes during pregnancy lead to an increase in blood sugar levels.


She added that some hormones provide more glucose (sugar) in the body, so the pancreas has to release more insulin to lower the blood sugar level and transport glucose into the cells. When the pancreas cannot produce enough insulin, blood sugar levels remain too high.


The risk factors for gestational diabetes are obesity, age over 30, a family history of type 2 diabetes and significant weight gain during pregnancy. Gestational diabetes symptoms appear in the form of fatigue, thirst, an urgent need to urinate, and high blood pressure.


The association warned of the danger of gestational diabetes to the health of the mother and fetus alike. The risk of premature birth and birth difficulties is increased due to the increased weight of the fetus, and the risk of obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease in the later life of the child.


To avoid these severe consequences, gestational diabetes should be confronted immediately, and it is often sufficient to modify the diet by avoiding sweets and foods containing white flour, with a lot of foods rich in dietary fiber such as vegetables, fruits and whole grain products, in addition to regular exercise and motor activities.


If the change in diet is insufficient and glucose levels remain unusually high despite the measures taken, then insulin therapy is necessary.
