Abstract

Diabetes is most common metabolic and clinical condition in pregnancy. The diabetes complicating pregnancy may be either preexistent (type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes or other specific forms) or gestational diabetes. International Diabetes Federation estimates that 6% of live births had some form of hyperglycemia in pregnancy and approximately 84% of it was attributable to gestational diabetes. Pregnancies complicated by gestational diabetes are associated with adverse short-term and long-term maternal and fetal outcomes. In order to reduce adverse pregnancy outcomes a proper diagnosis of GDM is required and carefully monitoring and control of blood glucose levels is mandatory.
