Discuss gestational diabetes/respond to this post


In essence, gestational diabetes is diabetes that appears during pregnancy. Although the cause is unknown, some think HLA antigens might be involved (StatPearls, 2023). Additionally, it’s assumed that high proinsulin levels contribute to gestational diabetes, and some research suggests that proinsulin may cause beta-cell stress (StatPearls, 2023). Elevated levels of hormones such as progesterone, cortisol, prolactin, human placental lactogen, and estrogen may impact peripheral insulin sensitivity and beta-cell activity (StatPearls, 2023).
