    Gestational Diabetes Mellitus Conclusion Statements: Calorie level (2001 CD)
    • Conclusion

      Cohort studies show that energy requirements are highly variable and can be met by increasing food intake, decreasing physical activity or decreasing fat storage. Therefore, recommendations for a calorie level are best determined by monitoring weight gain, physical activity, appetite, and food, glucose and ketone records.
