Gestational diabetes mellitus is associated with increased risk of complications for mother and child. Along with the growing epidemic of obesity and type 2 diabetes, the prevalence of gestational diabetes is expected to rise. With adequate and timely treatment, the risk of complications is reduced. Detection of gestational diabetes however is complicated, since often there are no symptoms. Currently no uniform strategy for detection of gestational diabetes exists. This thesis aims to evaluate costs and effects of various screening strategies in order to obtain a uniform (cost-)effective strategy for detection of gestational diabetes.
