are you pregnant? Gestational Diabetes occurs during pregnancy.
Just FYI - I had Gestational Diabetes - prior to them finding out that I had HCV.
However - I believe I was infected with the virus in my 3rd month of pregnancy.
Gestational Diabetes just means you have to eat well - take care of yourself - avoid sugars and be VERY healthy.
It can happen in normal pregnancies --- and HCV may or maynot be an agent to cause it. I haven't seen any articles on Gestational Diabetes and Pregnancy being together as a common occurence.
Welcome to the forum. Much luck learning about your HCV - and much hope for your pregnancy.
You can tell me to shut up or just ignore the question. How do you think you were infected in 3rd month. Sorry, if the question is offensive.
Here is a study that claims that HCV causes and increased risk of getting gestational diabetes.
I also have HCV and Gestational Diabetes.... I see you posted here quite a while back. But how was the birth? Did everything work out okay?
