Dietary intake and type 2 diabetes among women with and without a history of gestational diabetes


Women with gestational diabetes receive dietary advice to limit carbohydrate intake during their pregnancy as part of medical nutrition therapy. Evidence on whether any maternal dietary changes are sustained post-pregnancy, and into mid-life is limited.The proposed project seeks to explore the differences in dietary intake among mid-age women with and without a history of gestational diabetes. Specifically this project will examine if adiet low in carbohydrates is negatively or positively associated with the development of impaired glucose tolerance and type 2 diabetes, and if these associations differ according to history of gestational diabetes.
