Abstract

Abstract
Gestational Diabetes Mellitus is a public health concern and one of the causes of maternal and fetal mortality and morbidity.
Gestational diabetes is one of the most common health issue that can occur during pregnancy.it happens when the mother is
first diagnosed with diabetes during the pregnancy. The minimizing factors for gestational diabetes are adequate knowledge
about the condition for early detection and treatment; healthy practices on diet and physical activeness. Awareness of the
condition among antenatal women will translate into adoption of a healthy lifestyle, better health-seeking pattern, better selfcare
practice, which prevent acute complications and reduce the risk of long-term complications and promote pregnancy
outcome.
