1. Summary

Abstract for the general public

Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is a relatively common condition occurring during pregnancy. Presence of GDM during pregnancy may be associated with adverse pregnancy outcomes, including large birth weight and newborn low blood sugar. These outcomes could be identified and managed earlier in pregnancy through the diagnosis and treatment of GDM.
