seminar title:Dietary Glycemic Load and Gestational Diabetes

Gestational Diabetes mellitus (GDM); defined as glucose intolerance withonset or first recognition during pregnancy, is one of the most common pregnancy complications. GDM affects around 7% of all pregnancies. Tools for GDM management including dietary measures have been proposed as strategies in the prevention process. Low dietary glycemic load was thought to be one of these preventive tools.
Two prospective studies have been conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of dietary glycemic load and GDM risk. The first study done in 2006 suggested that a diet with low fiber and high glycemic load was associated with an increased risk of GDM. In addition, another study in 2009 showed that higher consumption of sugar sweetened cola is associated with an elevated GDM risk.
As a conclusion, dietary glycemic load is shown to be significantly associated with increased risk of GDM. However further studies are needed to confirm these findings. In the mean time, the best advice for pregnant women is to avoid high glycemic load diets including soft drinks by following a balanced diet that is moderate in fibers and sweetened beverages and that supplies all the nutrients needed for her and her fetus.
