Can I still have diabetes after delivery?

By Zaira Salvador B.Sc., M.Sc. (embryologist).
Last Update: 03/10/2022

In most women, diabetes disappears after giving birth, although they will have a higher risk of developing type II diabetes mellitus later in life or in a second pregnancy.

To reduce the risk of diabetes after childbirth, women are advised to breastfeed their babies to lose weight more easily, to follow a healthy and balanced diet, and to have all the glucose controls indicated by the doctor.
