More than half of women with newly diagnosed gestational diabetes were compliant with self-monitoring blood glucose before and after meals, according to findings published in Diabetes Care.

Emmanuel Cosson, MD, PhD, of the department of endocrinology-diabetology-nutrition, Jean Verdier Hospital, Université Paris, and colleagues evaluated data from 91 women with newly diagnosed gestational diabetes who understood SMBG principles to determine the compliance with SMBG and reliability of diabetes logbooks. Data on participants were analyzed over 13 days.
