    The article explores the use of glucose tolerance test (GTT) as a diagnostic strategy for gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM). While oral GTT offers the benefit of patient convenience, less time-consuming, fewer venopunctures and lower costs, one trade-off is that a small percentage of women who...
