Guidelines for Diagnosis of Hyperglycemia in Pregnancy-2011

Minimize
New diagnostic criteria allow for the diagnosis of preexisting diabetes at the initial prenatal visit.  The American Diabetes Association (ADA) position statement, based on recommendations from the International Association of Diabetes and Pregnancy Study Groups (IADPSG), recommends that a high-risk woman found to have diabetes at her initial prenatal visit should receive a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes and not gestational diabetes. 

Based on this and the consensus of CDAPP medical consultants, the algorithm “Guidelines for Diagnosis of Hyperglycemia in Pregnancy-2011” which includes early testing for diabetes at the first prenatal visit, up to 13 weeks gestation, or universal testing for GDM at 24 - 28 weeks was developed.
