The impact factor of journal provides quantitative assessment tool for grading, evaluating, sorting and comparing journals of similar kind. It reflects the average number of citations to recent articles published in science and social science journals in a particular year or period, and is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. It is first devised by Eugene Garfield, the founder of the Institute for Scientific Information. The impact factor of a journal is evaluated by dividing the number of current year citations to the source items published in that journal during the previous two years.
The word gestation means pregnancy from where the term gestational diabetes has arisen. This is one of the types of diabetes that is found to occur in the case of pregnancy. By causing high blood sugar level, this can affect the mother as well as her baby. However gestational diabetes is curable and with the maintenance of proper diet, healthy life style and right medication this can be stopped to precede any ahead. Feeling thirstier, passing excess of urine, tiredness, dry mouth, blurred vision are few of the symptoms. Since this type tends to affect two lives simultaneously, the diabetic mother should take a good care of her to prevent it in all possible ways. Controlling the increased BMI is also suggested in these cases. According to few studies, Type 2 diabetes is often likely to occur after gestational diabetes. Keeping a simple control over the day to day activity can keep away diabetes.
