Gestational diabetes: If you developed gestational diabetes during pregnancy or gave birth to a baby weighing more than 9 lbs (4 kg), the risk of type 2 diabetes increases.
During pregnancy, mothers who have gestational diabetes should:
- Carefully plan their meals to ensure adequate pregnancy nutrients without consuming a lot of processed fat.
- Exercise upon doctors' advice, as your workout schedule changes every trimester (every 3 months during pregnancy).
- Schedule regular doctors' appointments for check-ups.
Type 1.5 diabetes, also called latent autoimmune diabetes in adults (LADA 1.5), is a condition that shares characteristics of both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. LADA is an autoimmune disease that cannot be reversed with diet and lifestyle changes, but a healthy lifestyle can play a big part in preventing unwanted complications.
