Lutsenko L. A.

Kyiv city clinical endocrinology center

The need for timely and accurate diagnosis of gestational diabetes is caused by a high frequency of complications of pregnancy and neonatal morbidity in this pathology. Glycosylated hemoglobin, which gives an integrated view of the level of blood glucose over a long period of time, can be used in the detection and monitoring of disorders of carbohydrate metabolism during pregnancy.

Key words: pregnancy, gestational diabetes, glycated hemoglobin, glucose.
