This is a recorded version of the AACC webinar, New Recommendations for Diagnosis of Hyperglycemia in Pregnancy, which was originally held June 12, 2012. There are significant health advantages in identifying and treating women who have gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM). The diagnostic criteria for GDM has long been a source of controversy, however, and in 2011, The American Diabetes Association established new criteria for GDM detection and diagnosis. Unfortunately, the controversy continues as clinicians and clinical laboratories learn to live with the new criteria. Dr. Coustan explains why the ADA and clinical experts found the new criteria necessary, what evidence was used to establish them, how the they were developed and how they affect clinical laboratories.
