Gestational diabetes

Gestational diabetes or gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM), according to the criteria of the World Health Organization (WHO) and the American Diabetes Association (ADA), is defined as glucose intolerance diagnosed for the first time during pregnancy.

The prevalence of GDM is highly variable depending on the population studied and also depending on the screening threshold used.

However, it is a common condition: in European populations, the prevalence of GDM is around 3 to 6% of all pregnancies.
