Pregnancy is associated with relative carbohydrate intolerance and insulin resistance. Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is recognized as a risk factor for a number of adverse outcomes during pregnancy, including excessive fetal growth, increased incidence of birth trauma and neonatal metabolic abnormalities. This recognition has led to recommendations to screen all pregnant women for GDM and to treat those whose glucose tolerance tests exceed threshold criteria. Numerous epidemiological studies show that GDM affects between 1 and 25% of pregnancies, depending on the ethnicity of the population studied and the diagnostic criteria. Intervention to change lifestyle and, if maternal hyperglycemia persists, treatment with additional oral medication or insulin injections have shown to improve perinatal outcomes. Patients with GDM have a high risk of developing type 2 diabetes in the years after delivery and these women are encouraged to practice specific health behaviours (dietary habits, physical activity) during the postpartum period. The present article discusses the management of GDM in the light of data from the latest studies and international recommendations. [less ▲]

It is well known that the optimal management of diabetes mellitus requires the use of various insulin formulations with complementary pharmacokinetics, in order to better mimic physiological (basal and postprandial) insulin secretion. Recent advances led to the production of insulin analogues thanks to the substitution of specific amino acids. Pharmacokinetics is improved, without affecting pharmacodynamics or increasing side-effects. These new insulin forms concern both so-called ultra-short insulin analogues and long-acting insulin analogues (basal insulin). Even if they are not able to dramatically lower glycated haemoglobin levels, these new insulins significantly reduce the risk of hypoglycaemia and offer some practical advantages that could improve the quality of life of diabetic patients.
