dc.description.abstractPurpose: Review interventions that increase screening for or prevention of type 2 diabetes mellitus in women with gestational diabetes mellitus. Background: Women with gestational diabetes mellitus are at greater risk for developing type 2 diabetes mellitus. Studies conducted on other high-risk subjects have had success reducing rates of type 2 diabetes mellitus. Methods: An online search of three electronic databases was conducted. Studies were read and evaluated for design, sample, intervention type, and results. Results : A limited number of studies have been completed. Short-term success at reducing modifiable risk factor was found using a lifestyle intervention or diet, while educational interventions to improve screening rates had significant successes. Vitamin D had only a small impact, while Metformin showed promise in women with GDM. Breastfeeding was linked to delaying or preventing type 2 diabetes mellitus. Conclusions: The findings of this review were limited. There is potential to delay type 2 diabetes in women with GDM, however more research in this area is required.en_US
