With increased emphasis on disease
prevention, gestational diabetes (GDM) is worthy of more attention. The
incidence is on the rise not only in the United States (U.S.) but worldwide. Complications of GDM such as preeclampsia, cesarean delivery, neonatal
hypoglycemia, macrosomia, and birth trauma negatively impact maternal and fetal
health.Is a readily available,
non-prescription dietary supplement the answer? Recent investigations have examined
the use of myo-inositol for GDM
prevention, with positive results.
