MaGDA-2: Risk prediction and follow-up for prevention of pregnancy complications and type 2 diabetes
Prof Dougie Boyle
MaGDA-2 builds on the original MaGDA project (Mothers after Gestational Diabetes in Australia). Using the University of Melbourne’s GRHANITE® research data extraction tool, we are creating a linked set of de-identified data from multiple sources to understand how mothers at risk of developing diabetes (after gestational diabetes) can be identified. We aim to identify risk factors and develop and validate a risk prediction model related to the progression of gestational diabetes to type 2 diabetes. This project works towards enabling implementation of a ‘personalised medicine meets population health’ approach to gestational and type 2 diabetes.
