Back to Pre-Diabetes.

*Females who reported being diagnosed with gestational pre-diabetes (N=147) were included in the YES group.
The pre-diabetes screening question is asked only of respondents who reported NOT having diabetes, or not having pre-diabetes as
derived from the Diabetes Core question.
