Answer: Hi, Thank you for your enquiry. Gestational diabetes is a metabolic disorder and is not caused by the food that you eat. It can be made worse if you don`t follow a diabetic diet if you have developed the condition. It is always advisable to eat a variety of foods and not too much processed foods. Please discuss this with your carers. Best wishes, Alex.
