About the Project
The aim of the GEMS randomised trial is to find out the best way of diagnosing gestational diabetes to improve pregnancy and birth outcomes, but we also need to know if this has any later benefits for the mother or baby.
To determine in the GEMS cohort whether different thresholds for diagnosing gestational diabetes alter:
i) Later health of the women
ii) Outcomes of subsequent pregnancies
ii) Growth, health and development of the children.
