In this observational study of women with gestational diabetes diagnosed by early HbA1c screening or subsequent oral glucose tolerance test at < 34 weeks' gestation who delivered at National Women's Health, Auckland, from July 2012 to June 2014, the authors concluded that "an HbA1c of 41–49 mmol/mol (5.9–6.7%) identifies a higher-risk group of women with gestational diabetes. Overall, our data support early treatment of women with an HbA1c ≥ 41 mmol/mol (5.9%)".
