Gestational Diabetes Mellitus: Screening in Pregnant Women Before 24 Weeks of Gestation

Description of Resource: 
The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) concludes that the current evidence is insufficient to assess the balance of benefits and harms of screening for gestational diabetes mellitus in asymptomatic pregnant women before 24 weeks of gestation. This is an I statement, which means evidence is lacking, of poor quality, or conflicting, and the balance of benefits and harms cannot be determined.
