After gestational diabetes: An overlooked care transition in primary care
from The Journal for Nurse Practitioners
Women with history of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) have significant risk for developing type 2 diabetes (T2D), especially within 6 years of giving birth. Children exposed to GDM-complicated pregnancies may also experience future metabolic abnormalities. Care transitions following GDM-complicated pregnancies are often fragmented resulting in missed opportunities to implement T2D prevention strategies.
