GDM: Hypocaloric Diets (2001)
Hypocaloric diets (Gestational Diabetes Mellitus 2001)
Gestational Diabetes Medical Nutrition Therapy Protocol (2001)
The ADA 2001 Gestational Diabetes MNT Evidence-based guide for practice was originally published in a compact disk (CD) format. This 2001 project was published to the online Evidence Analysis Library for the benefit of ADA members, even though it does not follow the current online format and may be missing some of the components. (The current evidence analysis projects include the following components: question, conclusion, grade, search plan and results, evidence summary, overview table, worksheets, and quality check lists.)
Gestational Diabetes Mellitus Conclusion Statements: Hypocaloric Diets for Obese Women (2001 CD)
Random control trials have shown that restricting calories to 1200 kcal/day in obese women (BMI>30) with GDM results in ketonemia/ketonuria whereas restricting calories to ~1800 kcal/day does not result in ketonemia or ketonuria.
- Grade I means there is Good/Strong evidence supporting the statement;
- Grade II is Fair;
- Grade III is Limited/Weak;
- Grade IV is Expert Opinion Only;
- Grade V is Not Assignable.
