Raised blood sugar may increase the risk of early labor and delivery before the due date. Sometimes early delivery may be recommended because the baby is large.

Prefer foods lower in fat and calories and higher in fiber. Focus on fruits, green vegetables and whole grains. Regular physical activity.
Diabetes is a medical condition in which blood sugar levels are uncontrolled leading to complications and hence called as "sugar patients".
