Abstract

Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) not only increases perinatal complications, but also increases lifetime risk of type 2 diabetes. Recently, many studies have shown that women with GDM also have an increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD). The risk of preeclampsia, hypertension, dyslipidemia, metabolic syndrome, atherosclerosis, and CVDs were elevated in women with GDM compared with in those without GDM. Although it was not confirmed whether the management of GDM could reduce the development of CVDs, it is important to identify and manage CVDs in women with GDM.
