Diagnosis and Management of Gestational Diabetes Mellitus: Indian Guidelines

Seshiah V, Sahay BK, Das AK, Balaji V, Siddharth Shah, Samar Banerjee, A Muruganathan, Rao PV, Ammini A, Shahsank R Joshi, Sunil Gupta, Sanjay Gupte, Hema Divakar, Sujata Misra, Uday Thanawala, Vitull K Gupta, Navneet Magon


"Gestational diabetes mellitus" (GDM) is defined as carbohydrate intolerance with onset or recognition during pregnancy. Women diagnosed to have GDM are at increased risk of future diabetes predominantly type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM) as are their children. Thus, GDM offers an important opportunity for the development, testing and implementation of clinical strategies for diabetes prevention.


The prevalence of GDM in India varied from 3.8 to 21% in different parts of the country, depending on the geographical locations and diagnostic methods used.


Compared to selective screening, universal screening for GDM detects more cases and improves maternal and neonatal prognosis.

World Health Organization Procedure

To standardize the diagnosis of GDM, the World Health Organization (WHO) recommends using a 2-hour 75 g oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) with a threshold plasma glucose concentration of greater than 140 mg/dL at 2 hours, similar to that of IGT (> 140 mg/dL and < 199 mg/dL), outside pregnancy.

American Diabetes Association Procedure

American Diabetes Association (ADA) procedure has become obsolete.
