It's not just the overly large infants of diabetic or obese moms who will have a propensity to be obese. A new study suggests that even babies born at normal weights could be at risk of being overweight or obese by age 10 if their moms gained too much weight, or had higher than normal blood glucose during pregnancy.
According to the American Diabetes Association (ADA), gestational diabetes (GDM) is diagnosed in pregnant women who have not had diabetes, but who have high blood sugar during pregnancy.
