Description: You hear all the time from society that you are eating for two. So I thought that was my get out of jail free card. I kicked up my feet and thought I had a license to eat whatever I wanted, now that I was pregnant. But I would soon draw the short straw. I still remember when they called me to tell me I had failed the screening test and I would have to do the 3 hour test. Three hours?! What was I in for? But I learned my lesson and the second pregnancy I knew better! Join us as we talk to Patricia Castillo as she talks about being diagnosed with a unique form of diabetes you only develop in pregnancy, Gestational Diabetes. This unique diagnosis if uncontrolled can lead to an increased risk for Diabetes in the mother and the child later in life. Grab your notebooks and get ready to gleam some nuggets!
