Brief Summary:
Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is a risk factor for the development of type II diabetes and it is responsible for the morbidity of both mother and child. The aim of this study was to determine retinal findings of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Retinal Evaluation in Patients With GDM. Other: Pregnant volunteers with GDM

Detailed Description:
We have three groups; the first group consisted of pregnant volunteers with GDM. The second group consisted of healthy pregnant participants. The third group consisted of healthy, non-pregnant women at the reproductive age. Macular, choroid and retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thicknesses were evaluated in patients with GDM and comparisons were made among GDM, healthy pregnant and healthy non-pregnant subjects for these parameters by using optic cohorence tomography.
