This review discusses current international recommendations for GDM diagnosis and management and argues whether it would be worth considering first, universal screening for GDM in our country, second, updating of management guidelines and third, organized follow-up of women diagnosed with GDM and adoption of lifestyle interventions after delivery that could reduce the onset and prevalence of type 2 DM.
