Abstract

Gestational diabetes was discovered only 50 years ago—in the sense that it was not until 1961 that it was given a name and became a definite entity. This late emergence onto the stage is surprising, since the condition was noted well over 100 years ago. But its long relegation to the sidelines was understandable because only later did the demanding problems presented by overt diabetes in pregnancy begin to relent and attention allowed to turn elsewhere.
