The incidence of gestational diabetes mellitus in the Illawarra area of New South Wales.

Author information

Illawarra Area Health Service, New South Wales, Australia.


The incidence of gestational diabetes in the Illawarra area is 7.2% (95% CI: 6.0-8.4). This was determined by data collected by 2 prenatal clinics and 3 private practitioners during 1993. The incidence rate varied between 5.1% at one hospital to 11.3% with a private practitioner. This variation was mainly due to differences in age and ethnic background. The highest incidence rate of 11.9% was found in women of Asian background.
