August 26, 2014

Sonia Caprio, MD, of the department of pediatrics at the Yale University School of Medicine, and colleagues evaluated 255 obese adolescents with normal glucose tolerance to determine the effect of exposure to gestational diabetes while in the womb on the risk for diabetes and prediabetes.
