Improving postpartum diabetes testing in women who experienced gestational diabetes

With funding from the American Diabetes Association, we are working to better understand barriers to post-partum diabetes testing and to remove those barriers so that less neonates are born to women with undiagnosed and untreated prediabetes and diabetes. We therefore extensively surveyed 300 post-partum women with GDM and then designed an intervention to reduce those barriers. Thus far, 300 women have been recruited to participate in this new intervention in which they are tested for pre-diabetes and diabetes prior to hospital discharge.
