- (GDM) Diabetes mellitus that develops during pregnancy and usually goes away after pregnancy, but about 60% of those women will eventually develop Type II diabetes. GDM is the appearance of elevation of blood glucose (hyperglycemia) during pregnancy in approximately five percent (5%) of pregnant women during the second trimester. Gestational diabetes develops in pregnant women previously not known to have diabetes. The regimen for therapy for managing GDM is either a prescribed diet or insulin injections determined by her health care team.
