Due to a spurt in a lifestyle change, there is an increased chance of diabetes during pregnancy. The health department of Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) has surveyed 26,811 pregnant women since January 2017, of which 1,734 were detected with diabetes.
“We are running a project to detect GDM (Gestational Diabetes Mellitus) in urban and rural Ahmedabad. We have started it in December and detection was started in January to check the level of diabetes during pregnancy,” said Dr Himanshu Naik, in-charge project coordinator, AMC.
