What Happens When Gestational Diabetes Becomes Type 2?

Proper greatergood_ctg_belowtitle

When Sorcy Apostol was pregnant with her second child, she was diagnosed with gestational diabetes — that’s somewhat common among women who are pregnant, and is typically diagnosed around the 24th week of a woman’s pregnancy. However, she wasn’t aware that her “temporary” diagnosis could lead to something much more permanent, and was later diagnosed with Type 2. Although gestational diabetes doesn’t always become Type 2, women who are diagnosed are at increased risk. The best way to combat the risk of developing Type 2 later is to maintain a healthy lifestyle, get regular exercise, and eat a balanced diet.

However, if gestational diabetes does develop into Type 2, that doesn’t mean you can’t lead a normal life. Check out this video to see how Sorcy manages her diabetes with the help of her loving family, and don’t forget to let us know what you think!
