    Abstract

    Diabetes in pregnancy (DIP) poses a number of serious health risks for women and their babies, including developing chronic diseases later in life. The relative risk of developing type 2 diabetes (T2DM) following gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is more than seven fold higher than women with normal glucose levels in pregnancy. However the prevalence of progression from GDM to T2DM has been found to vary depending on a number of factors including population demographics, diagnostic criteria and time since delivery. The intergenerational impacts of DIP include an increased risk of T2DM and obesity in the offspring at a younger age.
