I have been diagnosed with diabetes. Will this affect my chance to get pregnant? How about my future baby, will my diabetes disease be passed on to it?

I don't think so. I do know that diabetes can be hereditary or genetic. So, yes, you might pass it on to your child.

as far as I know, diabetes DOES NOT hinder a woman from pregnancy. there may be complications for the mother during childbirth due to diabetes. I will not discuss that in detail here. best if you research the topic through google or get an appointment with an expert (re:doctor).

Hello KarenT...

Did you know that in the past women who were diagnosed with diabetes were strongly discouraged to have children? Yes that is true.

The good news is that is no longer the case today. The advances in science and medicine has made if possible and safer for diabetic women to have children. Isn't that great?!

According to experts, proper management of your diabetes (blood glucose must be carefully controlled during the pregnancy especially during first 6 weeks to prevent birth defects) along with proper guidance is all that is needed to for a successful pregnancy.
