Who Is At Risk For Developing Gestational Diabetes?

Question: Who is at risk for developing gestational diabetes?

Answer: There are several risk factors for gestational diabetes. One is being overweight, so anything you can do to get lean and fit would be great. Second risk factor is how many children you've had; the more children you've had, the more likely you are to get gestational diabetes with each subsequent pregnancy. Also, women with a family history of diabetes are at an increased risk as are women who are older mothers.
