Hello Radha
Dr. Pant post a good answer and it need a careful attention for your baby, what was your diabetic status when your was pregnant to your son, if you was diabetic at that time then go through a regular check-ups of Blood Sugar levels, S. Insulin levels and Thyroid Profile.

Hello Radha,
your worry is genuine as your child is over weight for his age and you have DM.Also there is family h/o DM .You should see that he does exercises regularly and particepates in sport activies in school.He should avoid all high calory junk foods.If possible his lipid profile and Blood sugar level should be investigated.Regular exercise and diet contol is very much needed to avoid DM in his life .
