Annie Banannie

Q:

I am very interested to know why, after pregnancy, I had a "Honey-Moon" affect after giving birth. There was no need for medication, no insulin, etc. After about 2 weeks, my body went back to its diabetic state. What happened to my body that made Diabetes go away for a while? Does this happen to all women after giving birth? Sorry for the many questions! :)

Hi Annie! I unfortunately do not have an answer for you as I am not a medical professional. I would consult your doctor about this. Also....No apologies needed for the questions wished I could have helped more!

That happened with my daughter when she had both of her children.. Thankfully she was prepared for it.. Like a little vacation.. I believe a lot of the sugar goes to the baby but not sure..
