Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is increasing in prevalence in the United States. A woman with GDM can have a healthy pregnancy if GDM is well-managed. Because GDM is increasing both in the United States and globally, providers who work in maternal child health must have a good grasp of how pregnancy alters glucose metabolism, what risk assessment is required, and what test results indicate when a pregnant woman has crossed into GDM. Healthcare practitioners can better serve both mother and baby when they understand the appropriate guidelines and interventions for diet and exercise, serum glucose parameters, and fetal monitoring.


The goal of this continuing education program is to inform healthcare providers about basic guidelines in the clinical management of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) so they can evaluate and counsel their patients. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • List risk factors for developing GDM.
  • Identify lab tests and normal values that guide diagnosis and treatment of GDM.
  • List the main points of managing care for the patient with GDM.
  • Develop nutrition care plans based on nutrition recommendations for GDM.
