Introducing Our New Gestational Diabetes Self-Referral Pathway

We are delighted to announce the launch of our latest initiative aimed at supporting individuals with a history of Gestational Diabetes Mellitus (GDM). At Living Well Taking Control, we are committed to empowering individuals to manage their health effectively, and our new self-referral pathway for GDM is designed to meet the unique needs of those who have previously had GDM.


Understanding Gestational Diabetes Mellitus (GDM)


Gestational Diabetes Mellitus (GDM) is a form of diabetes that develops during pregnancy. It occurs when pregnancy hormones make it hard for your body to use insulin properly, putting you at risk of insulin resistance and elevated blood glucose levels. While GDM typically resolves after childbirth, it can increase the risk of developing type 2 diabetes later in life.



Our GDM Self-Referral Pathway: What to Expect


Our newly launched GDM self-referral pathway provides access to essential resources and support to reduce risk of GDM in any future pregnancies and also of developing diabetes in the future. Here's what you can expect from our programme:




  • Comprehensive Education: Gain a thorough understanding of GDM, including its causes, symptoms, and potential complications.

  • Nutritional Guidance: Receive expert advice on healthy eating including essential food groups, portion sizes, reading food labels, and hydration.

  • Physical Activity: Learn about the importance of staying active, and effectively fitting this into your daily routine.

  • Stress Management: Explore strategies for managing stress and improving mental well-being.

  • Supportive Community: Connect with others facing similar challenges and share experiences, tips, and advice in a supportive and understanding environment.
