ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a large study of a ethnically diverse population in California which was reported in "Diabetes Care". The study found that the prevalence of pre-existing diabetes in pregnancy doubled during the seven years from 1999 to 2005. A discussion of the risk factors for diabetes, including being overweight or obese, and of statistics on the prevalence of obese women in the United States, is presented. Differences seen in the prevalence of pre-existing diabetes in minority groups are discussed.
