Pregnancy-related conditions taken together leave moms, and dads, at risk

Research

Research has already shown that women who develop either diabetes or high blood pressure during pregnancy are at risk of getting type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure or heart disease years later. Today, on World Diabetes Day, a new study released from a team at the RI-MUHC and McGill shows that the risk of developing those conditions post pregnancy is drastically higher if the women had both diabetes and high blood pressure during pregnancy.
