Health Care System FactorsDiabetes education is strongly recommended for women who have been diagnosed with gestational diabetes. Gestational diabetes can often be controlled through changes in diet and physical activity levels. Diabetes educators play a prominent role in helping women with gestational diabetes make the lifestyle changes needed to control their blood sugar levels without the need for medications or insulin.
Early detection is important. Women who are at high risk for gestational diabetes should seek prenatal care as early as possible during their pregnancy.
