Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) represents a heterogeneous group of metabolic disorders, which result in varying degrees of maternal hyperglycemia and pregnancy-associated risk. The frequency of GDM is rising globally and may also increase further as less-stringent criteria for the diagnosis are potentially adopted. The additional burden placed on the health care system by increasing cases of GDM requires consideration of diagnostic approaches and currently used treatment strategies. Debate continues to surround both the diagnosis and treatment of GDM despite several recent large-scale studies addressing these controversial issues. As many now have come to reassess their approach to the management of GDM, we provide information in this review to help guide this process. The goal for each health care practitioner should continue to be to provide optimum care for women discovered to have carbohydrate intolerance during pregnancy.

HEART DISEASE is the number one cause of death in the United States, for women as well as men. The various forms of heart disease, which include coronary artery disease (CAD), high blood pressure, athero sclerosis, heart failure and heart attacks, are responsible for over 250,000 deaths a year among women. Research-based strategies to promote heart health – emphasizing lifestyle changes to improve diet, decrease cholesterol levels, increase exercise, maintain a healthy body weight, and avoid cigarette smoking – have contributed to the steady decrease in rate of death from heart disease for men since 1980. Unfortunately, the rate for women has remained largely unchanged.1 The National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR), one of the Institutes of the National Institutes of Health, supports research by nurse scientists that helps to improve the health and health care of individuals across the life span – from the management of patients during illness and recovery to the reduction of risks for disease and disability and the promotion of healthy lifestyles. Since its inception, NINR has placed a large focus on disease prevention, with particular attention devoted to the aspects of heart disease that relate specifically to women. Scientists funded by the NINR have investigated gender-related factors associated with heart disease risk assessment, heart attack symptoms, management, and recovery, and the effects of related cardiovascular conditions. The results of this research have shed new light on differences in how men and women experience and respond to heart and other cardiovascular diseases.
If the blood supply to the heart is cut off, a heart attack results. Cells in the heart muscle that do not receive enough oxygencarrying blood begin to die. The more time that passes without treatment to restore blood flow, the greater the damage to the heart. Having high blood pressure or high blood cholesterol, smoking, and having had a previous heart attack, stroke or diabetes can increase a person’s chances of developing heart disease and having a heart attack. According to the American Heart Association, about 700,000 Americans will have an initial heart attack and another 500,000 will have a recurrent heart attack in 2004.1 Almost half of people who have a heart attack will die from it. According to a CDC report, almost half of the cardiac deaths in 1999 occurred before emergency services and hospital treatment could be administered.2 It is important to recognize the signs of a heart attack and to act immediately by calling 911. A person’s chances of surviving a heart attack is increased if emergency treatment is administered as soon as possible.
