I an really surprised that so many ladies on here keep mentioning weight and GD. Weight is one risk factor out of about 10 for GD, and it is a risk factor, not a cause at all. There are so many other things, such as family history, age, ethnicity and number of pregnancies that also come into play. The cause is hormones released during pregnancy interacting with insulin in a negative way.

Sorry, I'll hop off my soapbox now, but it's grating on me how so many people don't seem to know what it is (or that it is not at all the same as type 2 diabetes).

Good luck at your appointment
