KEY FACTS

      • Pathology

        • Clinical Issues

          TERMINOLOGY

          • Definitions

            • Pregestational diabetes (type I or II): Diabetes mellitus diagnosis predates pregnancy
            • Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM): Any degree of glucose intolerance initially diagnosed during pregnancy
              • Diagnosis by oral glucose tolerance test from 24- to 28-weeks gestation
              • GDM, by definition, resolves following pregnancy, although recurrence in subsequent pregnancies is common
                • Increased risk of developing type II diabetes (40-50% within 10 years)
              • Controversy exists regarding risk of anomalies in GDM
                • Anomalies in GDM may reflect undiagnosed type II diabetes
