Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To assess maternal and neonatal outcomes of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) following glycemic screening and diabetic management, with special focus on concurrent GDM and pre-eclampsia.

METHODS:

A retrospective chart review of 782 women diagnosed with and treated for GDM at a Chinese university teaching hospital. Data on maternal and neonatal outcome, glycemic control, concurrent pre-eclampsia, and diabetic management were collected and analyzed.

RESULTS:

The incidence of GDM was 3.8%. Of the affected women, 62.9% were managed with diet only and the remainder received insulin treatment. Overall, 80.7% had good glycemic control. Poor glycemic control and concurrent pre-eclampsia correlated with maternal and neonatal complications.

CONCLUSION:

Aggressive management for tight glycemic control improves maternal and neonatal outcomes in women with GDM.
