Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is one of the most common metabolic complications during pregnancy and cause#s a tremendous health and economic burden worldwide. The prevalence of GDM has continued to increase during the past few decades and is likely to see a further rise in the future. The public health impact of GDM is becoming more apparent, and it might lead to the development of chronic non-communicable diseases in later life for both mothers and their children. Early identification of high-risk individuals could help to take precise preventive and intervention measures to reduce the risk of GDM and adverse outcomes. Therefore, a focus on precision medicine in gestational diabetes mellitus is of great importance. Lifestyle interventions, including dietary and physical exercise intervention, are effective and first-line preventive strategies for GDM prevention and intervention. This Special Issue focuses on precise prevention, lifestyle intervention, as well as the prevalence of maternal and neonatal outcomes of GDM for better understanding of precision medicine in GDM. Contributors are invited to send original research articles, clinical trial articles, reviews, systematic reviews, meta-analyses, etc. to address this theme.
