Gestational Diabetes Symptoms

 

Gestational Diabetes Symptoms

Pregnant women with gestational diabetes will notice the following symptoms:

  • High blood glucose (hyperglycemia)
  • Becoming more thirsty
  • Increase and more frequent urination
  • Weight loss despite an increased in appetite
  • Fatigue
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Blurred Vision
  • Yeast and fungal infections

For some pregnant women they will have no recognizable symptoms and often it is only diagnosed during the routine blood testing that occurs as part of complete prenatal care. Diabetes is only evident if blood sugar is at high levels. Therefore, to find out whether gestational diabetes exist the pregnant woman is given a heavily sugared drink prior to a blood test so that the body’s sugar processing capability is maximally challenged. This test is known as an oral glucose-tolerance test.
