The prevalence of diabetes is increasing globally and India is no exception. WHO estimation of the prevalence of diabetes in adults indicates an expected total rise of > 120% from 135 million in 1995 to 300 million in 2025. These numbers also include women with Gestational Diabetes Mellitus (GDM). GDM is considered as a transient abnormality of glucose intolerance during pregnancy. Women with GDM are at increased risk of future diabetes as are their children and following subsequent generations. This fact should alert the physicians the necessity to devote special attention to this segment of population especially in developing countries.
