    Amount allocated :
    USD 393,812
    Objectives :
    We established a provincial antenatal care network to screen for gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) in Tianjin 10 years ago but the perinatal management of women with GDM remains suboptimal. Two large randomized trials have confirmed the benefits of tight control of hyperglycaemia on maternal health and foetal outcomes. In this proposal, we aim to translate a proven GDM-care protocol to daily practice using a shared care model within the three-tier antenatal care system in Tianjin, with a randomized design. The primary outcome is reduced incidence of deliveries of babies with birth weight ≥ 4500 grams. The secondary outcomes are reduced pregnancy-induced hypertension and macrosomia.
