The Diabetes and Pregnancy section of Frontiers in Clinical Diabetes and Healthcare publishes high-quality clinical and basic data across the field of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) and pregnancy in women with preexisting diabetes.
GDM affects approximately 7-10 % pregnancies annually worldwide, with rates varying across populations. In recent decades, GDM has become more common, creating health consequences for mothers and offspring during antepartum, intrapartum, and postpartum periods. Similarly, preexisting diabetes can affect both mother and offspring with potential complications and birth defects.
Areas covered by this section include, but are not limited to:
· Maternal risk factor
· Prediction of diabetes in pregnancy
· Laboratory tests and diabetes
· Basic science regarding diabetes in pregnancy
· Maternal complications in pregnancy
· Long-term maternal outcome
· Short term perinatal outcome
· Long-term outcome of the offspring
· Pathophysiology of GDM
· Etiology of GDM
· Epidemiology of GDM (prospective, retrospective and meta-analysis studies)
