Special Issue "Diet, Exercise and Gestational Diabetes Mellitus"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (20 March 2022) | Viewed by 6598
Obesity during pregnancy is associated with the development of adverse outcomes, including gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM). GDM increases the risk of both complications during pregnancy and the future susceptibility for future impaired glycaemic control and cardiovascular disease for both mother and child.
Diet modification and increased physical activity are the first-line strategy for prevention and treatment of GDM, yet there is inconclusive evidence for which type of diet and exercise is most beneficial and how lifestyle interventions can be optimised to prevent and treat GDM.
This Special Issue will collate recent high-quality research in the field of GDM, focussing on diet- and/or exercise. Both original research articles and reviews spanning from prevention to treatment of GDM are welcome.
