Brief description Diabetes in pregnancy provides exposure to high sugar levels before birth which can result in the child developing obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease later in life. This study aims to optimise the diagnosis and management of diabetes in pregnancy in the Northern Territory, thereby targeting the causes of chronic diseases from as early as possible in the life course, which we believe is a key step in closing the gap in life expectancy between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.
