What is the purpose of this trial?
Lactation may help prevent the development of type 2 diabetes in women with history of gestational diabetes. We hypothesize that mobilization of glucose and fat stores during lactation may be important for prevention of diabetes. The goal of this study is to better understand the effects of lactation on glucose and lipid metabolism in women with history of gestational diabetes.
