Gestational diabetes is a type of diabetes that develops during pregnancy. It is caused by the hormones produced by the placenta, which can make the body less sensitive to insulin. This can lead to high blood sugar levels and other health complications for both the mother and the baby. Treatment for gestational diabetes typically involves dietary changes, monitoring blood sugar levels, and in some cases, medication or insulin therapy.
