Course Overview

Convincing evidence exists that gestational diabetes mellitus is increasing in prevalence in the U.S. A woman with GDM can have a healthy pregnancy if the condition is well managed. Because GDM is increasing in the U.S. 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. Aside from the straightforward guidelines on diet and exercise, serum glucose parameters, and fetal monitoring, the provider needs to pay attention to how the patient is handling the diagnosis of GDM and self-care regimens.
