Abstract This review aims to evaluate the effectiveness of low glycemic index (GI) dietary intervention for the treatment of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM), specifically from the Asian perspective. A systematic review of the literature using multiple databases without time restriction was conducted. Three studies were retrieved based upon a priori inclusion criteria. While there was a trend towards improvement, no significant differences were observed in overall glycemic control and… Expand
Low-Carbohydrate Diet for the Treatment of Gestational Diabetes Mellitus
TLDR
Treatment of women with GDM using a low-CHO diet did not reduce the number of women needing insulin and produced similar pregnancy outcomes, and CHO amount did not influence insulin need or pregnancy outcomes. Expand
Role of Medical Nutrition Therapy in the Management of Gestational Diabetes Mellitus
TLDR
Overall, the nutritional requirements of GDM are similar for all pregnancies, but special attention is paid to carbohydrates, and the latest evidence, although limited, seems to favor a low-glycemic index diet. Expand
A systematic review of interventions for Hispanic women with or at risk of Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM).
TLDR
It is found that intensive nutritional counselling approaches which promote low calorie/low GI diets appear to be most effective in BGL management in this population of Hispanic women. Expand
Current dietetic practices in the management of gestational diabetes mellitus: a survey of Malaysian dietitians
TLDR
Although consistency was seen in key components of nutrition intervention, there were differences in the delivery of nutrient recommendations particularly in regard to dietary carbohydrate intake indicating a need for consensus on dietetic practice guidelines for the management of GDM. Expand
Gestational DM and Diet Control
  • Tak-Loi Mac
  • Medicine
  • Current Obstetrics and Gynecology Reports
  • 2015
TLDR
This review provides an overview of the dietary intervention of pregnant women with GDM and reports appropriate nutrition intake is beneficial for glycemic control and prevention of related adverse perinatal outcome. Expand
Modification and Validation of a Semi-Automated In vitro Method for Predicting the Glycemic Index of Starchy Foods
TLDR
A modified semi-automated Englyst method that better estimates the GI of foods as consumed was established and the modified method can be used together to effectively predict theGI of starchy foods. Expand
Differences in food and nutrient intakes between Australian‐ and Asian‐born women living in Australia: Results from the Australian Longitudinal Study on Women's Health
TLDR
Asian-born women living in Australia show different food and nutrient intakes from Australian- born women, although their diets tend to deviate from typical Asian characteristics and approach a Western diet. Expand
The effectiveness of smoking cessation, alcohol reduction, diet and physical activity interventions in changing behaviours during pregnancy: A systematic review of systematic reviews
TLDR
The most consistent review evidence is for interventions improving dietary behaviours during pregnancy compared with other behaviours, although the majority of diet reviews prioritised reporting health-related outcomes over behavioural outcomes. Expand
Nutrition in Middle Childhood and Adolescence
Adolescence is the period between childhood and adulthood. Patton and others (2016) further delineate this period as early adolescence (ages 10–14 years), late adolescence (ages 15–19 years), youthExpand

A Randomized Controlled Trial Investigating the Effects of a Low–Glycemic Index Diet on Pregnancy Outcomes in Gestational Diabetes Mellitus
TLDR
In intensively monitored women with GDM, an LGI diet and a conventional high-fiber moderate-GI diet produce similar pregnancy outcomes. Expand
Glycemic Index and Pregnancy: A Systematic Literature Review
TLDR
In pregnancy complicated by GDM, a low-GI diet may reduce the need for insulin without adverse effects on pregnancy outcomes, but until larger-scale intervention trials are completed, it should not replace the current recommended pregnancy diets from government and health agencies. Expand
Gestational diabetes; can a low glycemic index diet reduce the need for insulin? A randomised trial
TLDR
Using a low GI diet for women diagnosed with GDM effectively halved the number needing to use insulin with no compromise of obstetric or fetal outcomes. Expand
Effect of a low-glycemic-index diet during pregnancy on obstetric outcomes.
TLDR
Because birth weight and ponderal index may predict chronic disease in later life, a low-GI diet may favorably influence long-term outcomes. Expand
Can a Low–Glycemic Index Diet Reduce the Need for Insulin in Gestational Diabetes Mellitus?
TLDR
Using a low–glycemic index diet for women with GDM effectively halved the number needing to use insulin, with no compromise of obstetric or fetal outcomes. Expand
Carbohydrates, Glycemic Index, and Pregnancy Outcomes in Gestational Diabetes
TLDR
Pregnant women with GDM are likely to benefit from following a low-GI meal pattern, with no significant side effects, and consideration of the GI should be given when formulating a diet for GDM, but until larger scale intervention trials are completed, an exclusive low- GI diet should not replace the current recommended diets.

Improvement of Dietary Quality with the Aid of a Low Glycemic Index Diet in Asian Patients with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus
TLDR
The ability of low GI dietary advice to improve the dietary quality of Asian patients with T2DM is demonstrated. Expand
Effect of a low glycaemic index diet on blood glucose in women with gestational hyperglycaemia.
TLDR
A low-GI diet was feasible and acceptable in this sample and facilitated control of postprandial glucose in women with gestational diabetes or impaired glucose tolerance of pregnancy. Expand
Dietary advice in pregnancy for preventing gestational diabetes mellitus.
TLDR
While a low glycaemic index diet was seen to be beneficial for some outcomes for both mother and child, results were inconclusive and further trials with large sample sizes and longer follow up are required to make more definitive conclusions. Expand
Effects of a low-glycemic load diet in overweight and obese pregnant women: a pilot randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
A low-GL diet resulted in longer pregnancy duration, greater infant head circumference, and improved maternal cardiovascular risk factors, and large-scale studies are warranted to evaluate whether dietary intervention during pregnancy aimed at lowering GL may be useful in the prevention of prematurity and other adverse maternal and infant outcomes.
