Effects of a Lifestyle Intervention to Prevent Deterioration in Glycemic Status Among South AsianWomen With Recent Gestational Diabetes
This randomized, participant-unblinded controlled trial investigated a 12-month lifestyle intervention vs usual care at 19 urban hospitals in India, Sri Lanka, and Bangladesh. Participants included women with recent diagnosis of GDM who did not have type 2
diabetes at an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) 3 to 18 months postpartum.
A 12-month lifestyle intervention focused on diet and physical activity involving
group and individual sessions, as well as remote engagement, adapted to local context and resources. This was compared with usual care.
