Gestational Diabetes in General Practice

M Notelovitz

Abstract


The role of the general practitioner in the diagnosis and management of the gestational diabetic is defined. Recognition of this condition is important for improving the perinatal mortality; as is advice regarding steroid contraception; and as a means of predicting the development of overt diabetes. Methods of diagnosis are briefly commented upon.
