When a mother has gestational diabetes (diabetes during pregnancy), both she and her child have a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes later in life; however, risk can be lowered again by changing diet and physical activity. Dr. Robitaille is studying the children of women who have had gestational diabetes to examine how gestational diabetes impacts their risk of developing obesity, type 2 diabetes and other complications. Dr. Robitaille's team will also examine how lifestyle behaviours after the baby's birth affect the development of complications related to type 2 diabetes. This study will help in the development of prevention strategies for reducing the risk of obesity and type 2 diabetes among children whose mothers had gestational diabetes. - See more at:
