Follow-up often poor after gestational diabetes

Follow-up often poor after gestational diabetes
Endocrine Today, September 2016

Competing priorities and a low motivation for self-care often prevent women with gestational diabetes from undergoing continued postpartum monitoring for development of type 2 diabetes, including postpartum glucose testing, according to recent findings.

“Despite the high risk for type 2 diabetes after a pregnancy complicated by gestational diabetes, neither women nor their health care providers focus on the bigger picture of prevention of chronic disease over the life cycle,” Judith A. Bernstein, PhD, professor of community health sciences at Boston University School of Public Health, told Endocrine Today. “Immediate, pressing priorities get in the way for both patients and clinicians, and systems of care do not include fail-safes for ensuring that needed tests get done and communication occurs across specialties.”
