Your baby has the risk of developing diabetes (not now after 2 decades may be) depending upon the heredity of diabetes; did your parents have diabetes, your wife's parents, do you or your wife have diabetes. Additionally it is important to know the birth weight of the baby because if the baby was gt; 3.4 kg it implies that her sugars during gestation were not under good control and that can have a bearing but the final proof is not yet clear. I would rather be impressed if you could ask your wife to do a GTT test and show it to your doctor because the risk of your wife developing diabetes is about 5% every year. It's good to prevent diabetes!
