Worried about gestational diabetes?
Gestational diabetes is a type of diabetes that may develop in pregnancy. The amount of sugar in the blood goes up because the body isn't producing enough insulin to meet its increasing needs.
Gestational diabetes can have consequences for your health and for the wellbeing of your baby. At this stressful time, The London Diabetes Centre can offer cutting-edge treatment, education about lifestyle changes and the support you need to stay healthy and protect your unborn child.
London Diabetes Centre Gestational Diabetes Service
Appointments are available daily with a Dietitian (60 minutes). This service costs £150 and includes follow up emails after your consultation.
It’s important to take gestational diabetes seriously. High blood sugar levels can affect your health and have an impact on your baby’s development. Uncontrolled diabetes is linked with complicated birth, higher levels of Caesarean deliveries, big babies and increased rates of perinatal death.
The expert professionals at London Medical have experience in dealing with gestational diabetes and can help you control your sugar levels and stay healthy.
The specialist diabetologists at London Medical will work together with your antenatal care team to set blood sugar targets, prescribe the best evidence-based treatments and provide a monitor so that you can keep your glucose levels at the optimum level for you and your baby
