In women with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) greater dietary quality has been linked to enhanced general glycemic control and postprandial glycemic control, also discovered new research. The association between dietary glucose and glycemic control was examined in the Gestational Diabetes’ consequences on Mothers Research as well as the findings have been published in an article printed in Journal of Women’s Health, a peer-reviewed book by Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., publishers.
As per top doctors in India, increasing intake of legumes and vegetables could be advocated as an initial measure to enhance general dietary quality and thus increase the odds of achieving optimal glycemic control.
Dietary grade was evaluated using the Healthy Eating Index 2010 (HEI-2010) adherence scores from a food frequency questionnaire that was administered soon after the diagnosis of GDM. A higher HEI-2010 score indicates higher nutritional quality. Basis the HEI-2010 score, if we compare women in quartile 1 with those in quartiles 2, 3, and 4, it can be found that later had significantly increased likelihood of achieving optimal complete glycemic control along with individual dimensions of glycemic management. In other investigations of HEI-2010 element scores, greater overall vegetable intake and greens and legumes intake were related to increased likelihood of glycemic management.
