The article presents a reprint of the article "Pregnancy Glycemia to Vascular Risk: Nonglycemic Diabetes?" which appeared at www.cmaj.ca. It discusses the study which provides further evidence that diabetes in pregnant women begins as an early vascular problem. It mentions that it determined that women gestational diabetes are more obese than normoglycemic women. It inquires whether should type 2 diabetes be redefined as a vascular disease, with glycemia secondary to obesity.
