Webcast: Management of Gestational Diabetes
March 11, 2014
Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is one of the most common medical complications of pregnancy, affecting approximately 6-15 percent of gestations in the United States. The frequency of GDM is rising globally and may increase further as less stringent criteria for the diagnosis of GDM are applied. Debate continues regarding the significance of the diagnosis, diagnostic criteria, and preferred treatment strategies.
At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:
- Discuss the development and the pros and cons of recently suggested criteria for the diagnosis of GDM
- Understand glycemic targets for the treatment of GDM and strategies to optimize glycemic control
- Develop a rationale for fetal surveillance as well as timing and mode of delivery in pregnancies complicated by GDM
