ABSTRACT
This article presents information on a clinical study according to which screening and active management reduced perinatal complications more than routine care in gestational diabetes. The study explored whether in women with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM), a screening and active management intervention reduces serious perinatal complications more than routine care. Women gave birth to 1030 infants. The screening and active GDM management group had fewer perinatal complications, more admissions to the neonatal nursery, and more induced labors than the routine-care group. It was concluded that in women with gestational diabetes mellitus, screening and active management reduced perinatal complications more than routine care.
