In the position paper on gestational diabetes that appears in the September issue (1), two editing errors were introduced in the guidelines under Therapeutic Strategies. In the fifth paragraph of that section, the first sentence should read: "If dietary management does not consistently maintain the fasting plasma glucose to 105 mg/dL or less and/or the 2-hour postprandial plasma glucose to 120 mg/dL or less on two or more occasions with a 2-week interval, insulin therapy is initiated in many centers." The corrections are italicized in the preceding statement. We apologize to the American Diabetes Association for the error.
