Gestational diabetes mellitus is a relatively common medical condition that was described as early as the nineteenth century. This article discusses the maternal and fetal pathophysiology and the impact of the maternal condition on the neonate. Fetal macrosomia and infant respiratory distress syndrome, cardiomyopathy, hypoglycemia, hypocalcemia, hypomagnesemia, polycythemia, and hyperviscosity all can occur as a result of maternal hyperglycemia and are discussed in detail.

Gestational diabetes: the need for a common ground
TLDR
The controversies surrounding the causes, screening, diagnosis, management, and prevention of gestational diabetes mellitus are reported, and specific recommendations for research studies to address the major issues of this medical condition are given. Expand
New concepts in diabetic embryopathy.
TLDR
Major cellular activities and intracellular metabolic conditions have been shown to be associated with diabetic embryopathy using animal models and translating advances made in animal studies into clinical applications in humans requires collaborative efforts across the basic research, preclinical, and clinical communities.

Gestational Diabetes Mellitus (GDM): Current concept and a short Review
TLDR
A short review and current concept of GDM is discussed and the mother at increased risk of developing obstetric complications like prolonged labour, prone to develop type 2 diabetes in future and the baby is born with overweight. Expand
THE STUDY OF PREVALENCE NEONATAL HYPOCALCAEMIA
TLDR
There was no significant relationship between hypocalcaemia and weight or sex in neonates and pregnancies and significant statistical relationships between early and late onset hypocalcemia and asphyxia were found. Expand
Gestational Diabetes Mellitus
TLDR
The causes, pathophysiology, complications, risks, diagnosis, management, prevention, prevention etc. of GDM are reviewed. Expand
Developmental Considerations in Working with Newborn Infants of Mothers with Diabetes
Abstract Infants of diabetic mothers (IDMs) are at risk for an altered developmental course beginning with physiologic alterations in utero. This article describes physiologic and behavioral factorsExpand

TLDR
There remains, however, a great deal of controversy over when to begin screening for hyperglycemia in pregnancy and at what level of aggressive intervention should aggressive intervention be initiated. Expand
Management of gestational diabetes mellitus to optimize outcomes
TLDR
GDM is a very common medical complication during gestation associated with increased maternal, fetal, and neonatal adverse outcomes, principally macrosomia, and key treatment options are medical nutrition therapy, physical activity, insulin, metformin, and glyburide. Expand

TLDR
Newborns from mothers with diabetes mellitus or hypothyroidism have an increased risk of being SGA or LGA, and to develop a mild transient hypoglycaemia, and a strict metabolic control of these conditions is very important. Expand
Approach to Newborn and Childhood Metabolic Crisis
For most emergency medicine physicians, the phrases ‘‘newborn workup’’ and ‘‘metabolic disease’’ are, at best, uncomfortable. This article, however, provides a simple approach to the recognition,Expand

Despite marked declines in neonatal mortality, infants of diabetic mothers still experience significant morbidity and this article addresses short-term and long-term complications for this unique group of high-risk infants. Expand
A historical perspective on gestational diabetes.
TLDR
The belief that the diabetic condition was in some way a symptom of the pregnancy, which dates to that first report, has led to the more recent concept of gestational diabetes. Expand

TLDR
The association of pregnancy and diabetes is still characterized by high risks of fetal mortality and morbidity and maternal morbidity, and when one considers the increasing incidence of childhood onset of diabetes, a higher incidence in the future may be predicted. Expand
The diagnosis of gestational diabetes.
TLDR
The best available evidence supports the notion that the relationship between carbohydrate intolerance in pregnancy and adverse perinatal outcomes is a continuous one, and no single cutoff can separate pregnant women into those with high risk and those with no risk at all. Expand
Neonatal morbidities in gestational diabetes mellitus.
TLDR
There is a clear need to define the various levels of glucose intolerance in the mother that may have an adverse effect on the offspring and standardize and systematize the criteria used to assess the significance of any such impact. Expand
Diagnosis and management of gestational diabetes.
TLDR
Patients with gestational diabetes are at high risk for developing type II (non-insulin-dependent) diabetes mellitus later in life, they should be counseled and tested during the postpartum period and encouraged to lose weight and follow a diet to minimize the development of glucose intolerance.

TLDR
Those infants born to women with GDM remain at risk for hypoglycemia, which can be treated in one half of the cases by enteral feedings alone, and the majority of cases of RDS are mild and require short admissions to special care nurseries. Expand
