Gestational diabetes, gestational hypertension, mothers, and fathers
IMS level 4 meeting room 1 and 2

Abstract

Gestational diabetes (GDM) is an established risk indicator for type 2 diabetes in mothers that provides a window of opportunity for diabetes prevention. We will discuss its associations with diabetes, hypertension, and cardiovascular disease, both alone and in combination with gestational hypertension. We will review recent studies demonstrating its association with diabetes in fathers and diabetes in offspring. We will examine recent intervention studies in family-based diabetes prevention in the context of a maternal GDM history
