From Canada:

My grandmother had gestational diabetes while pregnant with my aunt, my mother had it while pregnant with me, and both offspring developed type 1 diabetes. Has anyone done a study on whether mothers who had gestational diabetes are more prone to have a child who will develop type 1 diabetes?


There is no evidence children whose mother had gestational diabetes are at greater risk of developing diabetes themselves.
