The subject of the study was pregnancies with gestational diabetes diagnosed and treated in the Health Care Centre Zaječar in a ten-year period (1997-2006). The group consisted of 135 women with terminated pregnancies. 87% examinees were treated by diet and 13% by insulin. The insulin treated group were statistically older than the diet treated group. 96% of pregnancies ended with a live-born child, of which 82% had bearing weight less than 4 kg. The examinees were monitored according to their maternal age and BMI and the study proved that the two parameters had neither the influence on the development of gestational diabetes nor on related prognosis; consequently, the whole maternal population in the examined area should be screened (no selective screening for gestational diabetes).
Key words: diabetes, pregnancy, gestational diabetes, body mass index
