Abstract:

One in six live births occur in women with diabetes, of which, by far the most common type accounting for approximately 85% of all diabetes cases, is gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM). Prof Murphy explains the maternal risk factors, epidemiology, screening methods and controversial diagnostic criteria for GDM; and reviews dietary guidelines for the management of GDM. Prof Murphy also explains how new technologies such as continuous glucose monitoring may pave the way for improved risk assessment, personalized treatment, better management, and improved health outcomes for both mother and baby.
