Gestational diabetes (GDM) is a strong risk factor for developing future “chronic” diabetes. GDM is common among Indian women. Limited information about lifestyle programs to prevent or delay diabetes in women with GDM is available from other countries, but their applicability in India is unknown. We will conduct and adapt such programs to be culturally-appropriate for the Indian context and test them in a small group of patients to determine their likely feasibility. Such information will allow us to refine the program and perform a larger study to conclusively determine its generalisability, effectiveness and sustainability in urban India.
