The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommends screening for gestational diabetes at or after 24 weeks of pregnancy. This recommendation applies to pregnant women who haven't been diagnosed with type 1 or type 2 diabetes and who don't have symptoms of gestational diabetes. USPSTF found insufficient evidence to assess whether the benefits of gestational diabetes screening before 24 weeks of pregnancy outweigh the harms.
