Yes, that's how I understand it too, although it seems to conflict kind of a lot with the idea that the damage from preeclampsia entirely reverses after delivery!

I am not sure there is any way to know that everything resolves entirely at the cellular level...
It's a chicken and egg situation... did the preeclampsia do something to predispose us further or would we have just developed HD and DM anyway. With GD there is a hyperinsulinemia along with insulin resistance and we know that pancreatic beta cells can "burn out" eventually leading to Type 2 DM. So on that end I am not surprised that I have ended up here. Interestingly, everyone in my family has HD but no one has ever developed PE or diabetes on either side. So bad luck, coupled with bad genes, add preeclampsia and stir :o)

Ugh. And I have a family history of Type 2 diabetes. Though no GD for me.
