Özet

OBJECTIVE: Diabetes in pregnancy is associated with several adverse outcomes for both mother and baby. Awareness is the first step toward identifying pregnant women with diabetes. The purpose of this study was to assess Turkish pregnant women's opinion and practice about 50-g glucose challenge test (GCT) and to assess the reasons why some of them refuse the test.
