Abstract

The prevalence of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) has been increasing worldwide, as has the economic cost associated with this condition. GDM threatens the health of the mother and child, and thus proper monitoring and management are essential. Mobile healthcare services have been applied to manage some diseases, particularly chronic diseases. We aimed to evaluate the utility of a mobile application in nutritional intervention by observing cases of a mobile application in a series of patients with GDM. We provided a mobile-based intervention to GDM patients and collected biochemical and nutritional information. The mobile-based nutritional intervention was effective in controlling carbohydrate intake and improving blood glucose level for patients with GDM.
