Posted: Updated:

CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) – On this week's Be safe from diabetes report Karen Lerma and Jessica Anderson join Katy Kiser to discuss "Gestational Diabetes" which is a type of diabetes women can get while they are pregnant.

There are hormonal changes that can up to triple the need for by the end of the pregnancy. Other complications can arise such as hypertension.

Lerma and Anderson teach classes that can help you learn how to manage diabetes. They teach you such things as how to monitor your blood sugar, how to take your insulin, and proper eating habits.

There will be a "Controlling Your Diabetes" educational class at Del Mar College on March 11, 2011. For more information call 361-857-2945
