To the Editor In the cohort study by Dr Lowe and colleagues,1 the association of gestational diabetes with later maternal diabetes and childhood adiposity was explored. The authors reported that gestational diabetes was associated with the development of maternal diabetic disorders (type 2 diabetes and prediabetes) but was not significantly associated with the development of childhood overweight or obesity.
