PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — When a pregnant woman is told she has gestational diabetes, it may have been a problem for some time already.
“Many of these women already have problems with their blood sugar but may not know it,” said Dr. Paul Weinbaum, OBGYN at West Penn Hospital.
Researchers looked at the impact of the condition of high blood sugar first detected during pregnancy. It can lead to high birth weight babies, which can lead to birth injuries and problems with the baby’s blood sugar.
