The risk factors commonly associated with an increased chance of developing gestational diabetes include:

• Having a history of gestational diabetes in previous pregnancies.

• Being overweight or obese.

• Being older than 25 years.

• Having a family history of diabetes (especially if a parent or sibling has diabetes).

• If you previously delivered a baby weighing more than 9 pounds.

• Having glucose in your urine.

• Being African-American, Hispanic, Native American or Asian.

• Having "prediabetes," also known as impaired glucose tolerance.
