Gestational Obesity & Diabetes

Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is the most common medical complication of pregnancy and is defined as glucose intolerance or high blood glucose concentrations (hyperglycemia), with onset or first recognition during pregnancy. The prevalence of GDM varies from 1 to 20% and is rising worldwide in line with increasing trends of maternal obesity and Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM).The incidence of GDM rises disproportionately with increasing obesity. Obesity and GDM have been recognized as independent risk factors for a number of adverse maternal and fetal outcomes, including diabetes, hypertension, operative deliveries, macrosomia and neonatal complications.
