Consequences of Gestational Diabetes in an Urban Hospital in Viet Nam: A Prospective Cohort Study

Published By: Plos medicine on eSS | Published Date: July, 30 , 2012

Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is increasing and is a risk for type 2 diabetes. Evidence supporting screening comes mostly from high-income countries. Prevalence and outcomes in urban Viet Nam are determined. A comparison was made of the proposed International Association of the Diabetes and Pregnancy Study Groups (IADPSG) criterion, requiring one positive value on the 75-g glucose tolerance test, to the 2010 American Diabetes Association (ADA) criterion, requiring two positive values.
