Harnessing Human Potential and Improving Health Span in Women and their Children: A Randomised Controlled Trial

Gestational Diabetes and Type 2 Diabetes
Researchers have found that women with a history of Gestational Diabetes Mellitus (GDM) have a higher risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes four to six years after delivery. Hence, it is important for women with GDM history to undergo regular diabetes screening and adopt healthy lifestyle habits to reduce the risk of diabetes.
