Summary Introduction

To determine: Whether Person E has gestational diabetes or not.

Introduction: High blood sugar level during pregnancy without the history of diabetes is referred to as gestational diabetes. In gestational diabetes, insulin resistance increases with the progression of pregnancy and hence, insulin requirement also increases. An increased Body Mass Index (BMI) is also associated with an increased risk of gestational diabetes. The American Diabetes Association has recommended screening for blood glucose level to be undertaken during 24 to 28 weeks of pregnancy.
