Research titel and description

Insulin sensitivity in gestational diabetes mellitus. I investigate characteristics and predicting factors for recurrent gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) and evaluate continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) as a tool in treatment of GDM. GDM is one of the most common pregnancy disorders. Women diagnosed with GDM in one pregnancy have 40-50% risk of developing GDM in following pregnancies. CGM is shown to be an effective tool in treatment of pregnant women with Type 1 Diabetes, resulting in improved neonatal outcomes – but little is known of the use of CGM in GDM pregnancies. Hopefully, my results will contribute to tailoring of more effective treatment and prevention strategies of GDM.
