This is a type of diabetes that affects women during pregnancy. The hormones produced during pregnancy can make it difficult for the body to use insulin properly, which increases the risk of insulin resistance. This makes it harder for the body to control glucose levels. It usually develops towards the end of the second or beginning of the third trimester.
