ConclusionsThere is neither concerted effort to diagnose GDM, nor systematic records of screening and postpartum follow-up. The gap in diabetology knowledge and practice calls for re-training of antenatal healthcare professionals. GDM screening checklist needs to be established and positive results entered into GDM registers for proper management during and after delivery.

CONCLUSIONS Among the pregnant women, greater adherence to “ traditional Brazilian ” and “ healthy ” patterns was inversely associated with obesity, but no relationship was identified with gestational diabetes mellitus after adjusting for excessive body weight. Prospective studies are recommended to investigate the relationship between dietary patterns, overweight and gestational diabetes mellitus, reducing the chance of reverse causality.RESUMO OBJETIVO Investigar a rela ção entre os padrões alimentares de gestantes com o excesso de peso materno e o diabetes mellitus gestaciona...

The prevalence of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) has been dramatically increasing worldwide including China[1], accounting for 7% of pregnant women in the world[2]. It is well established that GDM predisposes pregnant women to high risk of delivery of macrosomic infants while lifestyle intervention of GDM reduces the rate of macrosomia or large for gestational age (LGA) infants although not all trials showed that such intervention was also able to reduce the risk of perinatal morbidities[3,4].
