The prevalence of gestational diabetes mellitus in Korea was 1.7~3.9% in the 1990s, but it has risen sharply since 2007, reported at 10.5% in 2011, Active prevention and management are needed to help address this continued increase. Several studies have shown that aggressive blood glucose management can reduce maternal and neonatal complications. The American Diabetes Association proposed control of blood glucose level during pregnancy at, less than 95 mg/dL at fasting, less than 140 mg/dL at 1 hour postprandial, and less than 120 mg/dL at 2 hours postprandial. In addition, blood glucose management is necessary for prevention of type 2 diabetes after childbirth.
