Is PCOS/PCOD linked to diabetes in pregnancy?

The chance of developing gestational diabetes is higher for women with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). When women who have never had diabetes before develop an impaired ability to process glucose during pregnancy, gestational diabetes occurs, resulting in high blood sugar. Complications such as high birth weight, preterm birth, breathing difficulties at birth, low blood sugar, and jaundice can result in high blood glucose associated with gestational diabetes. It may also cause problems for the mother and child at delivery. Fortunately, with or without medication, a carefully balanced diet can help manage blood sugar levels and prevent complications.
