What To Expect When You've Got Gestational Diabetes In Texas

Large birth weight is a typical complication of gestational diabetes [GDM], a condition which affects around 200,000 pregnancies annually in the US. According to the NIH, physicians generally screen for GDM at around 24-28 weeks, earlier if there are more diabetes risk factors.

Still, for some lady in Texas with GDM, large was supposed to be 12 pounds, not 16.
