Introduction
As the prevalence of diabetes continues to rise worldwide, it becomes increasingly important to identify high risk populations and to implement strategies to delay or prevent diabetes onset. Women diagnosed with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) are at substantially increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes and obesity, currently at epidemic rates in the US. Although physical activity and psychosocial stress have been considered in previous studies of pregnancy outcome, their potential influence on GDM has not been elucidated.
