Frequent episodes of high blood sugar in long term can be potential to affect the performance of vagus nerve (a crucial nerve for your digestive system, which has important function to regulate the muscles of your stomach). See more how diabetes affects your stomach in this section!


Gastroparesis is likely to occur in diabetics who have had diabetes for at least 10 years. Therefore as noted before, gastroparesis is more common in type-1 diabetes since this diabetes is commonly diagnosed in teens (before the age of 20s).

This suggests that the chance of gastroparesis in gestational diabetes (GD) is very low. As well we know, GD is a type of diabetes that only occurs in pregnancy. After childbirth, it can go away on its own . And soon (about at 6th week after the day of childbirth), the normal mechanism of the body to regulate blood glucose will return on its own.

Overall, nausea and vomiting in pregnancy is often caused by the pregnancy itself and sometimes your diet. Although pregnancy symptoms could be more challenging with gestational diabetes, it’s not fully known yet whether there is a connection between the two of them.

However if you experience severe NVP (no matter the reason behind the problem), see your doctor promptly! If left untreated, this may lead to malnutrition and serious dehydration, which can be harmful for your baby and your pregnancy!
