Investigation of a lifestyle change strategy for high-risk women with a history of gestational diabetes

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Fifty-nine women with recent gestational diabetes participated in a randomized controlled trial to assess the feasibility and efficacy of a pragmatic diabetes risk reduction intervention. Intervention participants achieved improvements in energy, total and saturated fats, and carbohydrate intake, but no change in physical activity. Recruitment was challenging and below expectations.
