Abstract

Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is characterized by carbohydrate intolerance first discovered or which begins during pregnancy, and there is an increasing tendency of increased frequency of GDM or type 2 diabetes mellitus due to increased rate of obesity, changes in dietary habits and living patterns in reproductive age women. The degree of glucose control affects the perinatal outcome, and therefore early diagnosis and treatment is critical. Women with GDM need to be followed and monitored for type 2 diabetes or recurrence of disease in later pregnancies.
