Name of Study



Purpose of Study

AFTER-GDM is exciting new HRB funded Irish research at University College Dublin (UCD) looking at type2 diabetes prevention, after pregnancy with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM). More information on this, and other work through the chronic disease prevention focused collaborative doctoral award can be found here .

After a pregnancy with GDM, a woman’s risk of developing type 2 diabetes is higher when compared with those who have never had GDM. To develop an approach to preventing future type 2 diabetes, we first need to understand the current picture. We plan to conduct two online surveys – firstly one for those with lived experience of GDM, and to follow, one for health professionals. This information will help inform the development of a type 2 diabetes prevention pathway.
