Diabetes mellitus – Gestational diabetes mellitus

Purpose: Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) continues to be a significant health disorder triggering harmful complications in pregnant women and fetuses. Methods – A cross-sectional study was conducted from 2011 through 2012 in selected urban and rural communities. “Women with diabetes are seven times more likely to have a stillborn baby than healthy women”, the newspaper says and it cautions that the sharp increase in type 2 diabetes that was seen across all ages and racial groups may be driven by the obesity epidemic. Results: During the period under study 4,755 women had antenatal care and delivered in the hospital. A reviewer will review the titles, abstracts and keywords of every article/ record retrieved by the search strategy according to the selection criteria. The prevalence of GDM was 10-11% and OGTTs 22-28% between the period 2004 until 2006. Synthesis of within-study findings showed: higher age-adjusted prevalences of GDM in Indigenous versus non-Indigenous
