Exclusion of insulin receptor substrate 2 (IRS-2) as a major locus for early-onset autosomal dominant type 2 diabetes. (1/882)

We investigated whether variability at the insulin receptor substrate (IRS)-2 locus plays a role in the etiology of early-onset autosomal dominant type 2 diabetes. By means of radiation hybrid mapping, we placed the human IRS-2 gene on 13q at 8.6 cRays from SHGC-37358. Linkage between diabetes and two polymorphic markers located in this region (D13S285 and D13S1295) was then evaluated in 29 families with early-onset autosomal dominant type 2 diabetes. Included were 220 individuals with diabetes, impaired glucose tolerance, or gestational diabetes (mean age at diabetes diagnosis 36 +/- 17 years) and 146 nondiabetic subjects. Overall, strongly negative logarithm of odds (LOD) scores for linkage with diabetes were obtained by multipoint parametric analysis (LOD score -45.4 at D13S285 and -40.9 at D13S1295). No significant evidence of linkage was obtained under the hypothesis of heterogeneity or by nonparametric methods. Fourteen pedigrees for which linkage could not be excluded (LOD score > -2.0) were screened for mutations in the IRS-2 coding region by dideoxy fingerprinting. However, no mutations segregating with diabetes could be detected in these families. These data indicate that IRS-2 is not a major gene for early-onset autosomal dominant type 2 diabetes, although a role of mutations in the promoter region cannot be excluded at this time.  (+info)

Effect of selective screening for gestational diabetes. (2/882)

OBJECTIVE: To estimate the percentage of pregnant women who would not be screened and the percentage of women with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) who would possibly remain undiagnosed if the American Diabetes Association's (ADA's) new selective screening recommendations are used rather than universal screening for GDM. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: Since 1987, the University of Michigan Health System has performed universal screening for GDM. In 1997, the ADA recommended that women having all four of the following characteristics need not be screened: age < 25 years, not members of an ethnic/racial group with a high prevalence of diabetes, normal body weight, and no family history of diabetes. We studied a random sample of the 25,118 deliveries at the University of Michigan between 1987 and 1997 to determine the prevalence of these four characteristics in our obstetric population. We also studied the prevalence of these four characteristics in 200 women who were diagnosed with GDM in the Endocrine Testing Unit and delivered at the University of Michigan between 1987 and 1997. RESULTS: Approximately 10-11% of women who delivered possessed all four low-risk characteristics and would not have been screened for GDM according to the new ADA recommendations. Only 4% of women (5 of 141) with GDM who delivered and for whom data on all four characteristics were reported possessed all four low-risk characteristics and would not have been screened. CONCLUSIONS: If the new ADA selective screening recommendations are used, few women with GDM will be missed (4%) but approximately 90% of pregnant women will still need to be screened for GDM.  (+info)

Insulin in obstetrics: a main parameter in the management of pregnancy. (3/882)

Insulin plays a central role in human pregnancy. Maternal insulin sensitivity decreases with advancing gestation in order to provide glucose and possibly other nutrients for feto-placental growth and energy needs. Moreover, alterations of insulin metabolism are clearly involved in the development of gestational diabetes. In recent years, hyperinsulinaemia has been also proposed as a possible pathogenic factor in the development of gestational hypertension and preeclampsia; furthermore it has also been postulated that there is an involvement of insulin sensitivity in fetal growth restriction. These intriguing data have stimulated our interest in summarizing the physiopathological mechanisms by which the pancreatic hormone could be involved in obstetrics.  (+info)

Multiple metabolic defects during late pregnancy in women at high risk for type 2 diabetes. (4/882)

Detailed metabolic studies were carried out to compare major regulatory steps in glucose metabolism in vivo between 25 normal pregnant Latino women without and 150 pregnant Latino women with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM). The two groups were frequency-matched for age, BMI, and gestational age at testing in the third trimester. After an overnight fast, women with GDM had higher fasting plasma glucose (P = 0.0001) and immunoreactive insulin (P = 0.0003) concentrations and higher glucose production rates (P = 0.01) but lower glucose clearance rates (P = 0.001) compared with normal pregnant women. During steady-state hyperinsulinemia (approximately 600 pmol/l) and euglycemia (approximately 4.9 mmol/l), women with GDM had lower glucose clearance rates (P = 0.0001) but higher glucose production rates (P = 0.0001) and plasma free fatty acid (FFA) concentrations (P = 0.0002) than the normal women. These intergroup differences persisted when a subgroup of 116 women with GDM who were not diabetic < or = 6 months after pregnancy were used in the analysis. When all subjects were considered, there was a very close correlation between glucose production rates and plasma FFA concentrations throughout the glucose clamps in control (r = 0.996) and GDM (r = 0.995) groups. Slopes and intercepts of the relationships were nearly identical, suggesting that blunted suppression of FFA concentrations contributed to blunted suppression of glucose production in the GDM group. In addition to these defects in insulin action, women with GDM had a 67% impairment of pancreatic beta-cell compensation for insulin resistance compared with normal pregnant women. These results demonstrate that women with GDM have multiple defects in insulin action together with impaired compensation for insulin resistance. Our findings suggest that defects in the regulation of glucose clearance, glucose production, and plasma FFA concentrations, together with defects in pancreatic beta-cell function, precede the development of type 2 diabetes in these high-risk women.  (+info)

Effects of overexpression of human GLUT4 gene on maternal diabetes and fetal growth in spontaneous gestational diabetic C57BLKS/J Lepr(db/+) mice. (5/882)

During gestation, heterozygous C57BLKS/J-Lepr(db/+) mice develop spontaneous gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM), and the newborn fetuses are macrosomic compared with offspring from wild-type (+/+) mothers. To investigate the effects of the leptin receptor mutation on maternal metabolism and fetal growth during pregnancy, we studied +/+, db/+, and db/+ transgenic mice that overexpress the human GLUT4 gene two- to three-fold (db/+TG6). During pregnancy, fasting plasma glucose and hepatic glucose production were twofold greater in db/+ than +/+ mice, despite similar insulin levels. In skeletal muscle, insulin-stimulated tyrosine phosphorylation was decreased in pregnant +/+ mice, and even more so in db/+ mice: insulin receptor beta (IR-beta), +/+ 34%, db/+ 57% decrease, P<0.05; insulin receptor substrate 1 (IRS-1), +/+ 44%, db/+ 61% decrease, P<0.05; and phosphoinositol (PI) 3-kinase (p85alpha), +/+ 33%, db/+ 65% decrease, P<0.05. Overexpression of GLUT4 in db/+TG6 mice markedly improved glucose-stimulated insulin secretion, by 250%, and increased IRbeta, IRS-1, and p85alpha phosphorylation twofold, despite no change in concentration of these proteins. Plasma leptin concentration increased 40-fold during pregnancy, from 2.2+/-0.5 to 92+/-11 ng/ml and 3.6+/-0.1 to 178+/-34 ng/ml in +/+ and db/+ mice, respectively (P<0.01), but was increased to only 23+/-3 ng/ml in pregnant db/+TG6 mice (P<0.001). Maternal fat mass and energy intake were greater in db/+ mice, and fat mass was reduced by GLUT4 overexpression, independent of food intake. Fetal body weight was increased by 8.1 and 7.9% in db/+ and db/+TG6 mothers, respectively (P<0.05), regardless of fetal genotype, whereas fetuses from db/+TG8 mothers (four- to fivefold overexpression) weighed significantly less compared with pups from +/+ or db/+ mothers (P<0.05). These results suggest that the single mutant db allele effects susceptibility to GDM through abnormalities in insulin receptor signaling, defective insulin secretion, and greater nutrient availability. GLUT4 overexpression markedly improves insulin-signaling in GDM, resulting in increased insulin secretion and improved glycemic control. However, maternal hyperglycemia appears not to be the sole cause of fetal macrosomia. These data suggest that GDM is associated with defects in insulin receptor signaling in maternal skeletal muscle, and this may be an important factor provoking maternal and fetal perinatal complications.  (+info)

Protein metabolism in insulin-treated gestational diabetes. (6/882)

OBJECTIVE: To test the hypothesis that protein metabolism is not totally normalized in insulin treated gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) patients compared with normal, pregnant control subjects. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: Protein metabolism in eight Hispanic women with insulin-treated GDM and eight healthy Hispanic control women was studied in late gestation and at 6 weeks postpartum. Nitrogen flux was assessed from the disposal rate of [15N]-labeled urea over 12 h after a dose of [15N]-labeled leucine. Plasma amino acid concentrations were determined in fasting and 2-h postprandial samples using an amino acid analyzer. RESULTS: Protein turnover was normalized in insulin-treated GDM; however, fasting and postprandial plasma amino acids were elevated antepartum and postpartum. Nitrogen flux was significantly lower during pregnancy (P = 0.04-0.001) and did not differ between groups. Fasting and postprandial plasma amino acids were elevated in GDM antepartum and postpartum, despite satisfactory glycemic control. Fasting levels of taurine, hydroxyproline, glutamic acid, glutamine, cystine, tyrosine, phenylalanine, tryptophan, and histidine were higher in GDM antepartum and postpartum (P < 0.05). Postprandial concentrations of taurine, hydroxyproline, valine, cystine, isoleucine, leucine, tyrosine, phenylalanine, tryptophan, ornithine, lysine, histidine, and arginine were higher in GDM antepartum and postpartum (P < 0.05). With few exceptions, plasma amino acid concentrations were lower antepartum than postpartum (P < 0.05). CONCLUSIONS: Protein turnover was normalized in insulin-treated women with GDM; however, fasting and postprandial plasma concentrations of amino acids were elevated in the antepartum and postpartum periods, despite satisfactory maternal glycemic control.  (+info)

Prevalence of gestational diabetes mellitus among James Bay Cree women in northern Quebec. (7/882)

BACKGROUND: The prevalence of gestational diabetes mellitus has been reported to vary widely in aboriginal populations. Most of the data have come from the United States. To help determine the extent of gestational diabetes in Canada's aboriginal population, the authors assessed the prevalence in a population of Cree women in northern Quebec. METHODS: A cross-sectional study was conducted using the National Diabetes Data Group (NDDG) criteria. Information was obtained from patient charts on pregnancies between January 1995 and December 1996 among women residing in 9 Cree communities in the eastern James Bay region of northern Quebec. Women who were not Cree, had pre-existing diabetes, had spontaneous abortion or were receiving glucocorticoid treatment were excluded. RESULTS: Data on 654 pregnancies that met the inclusion criteria were available. Results of the screening oral glucose challenge test were available for 579 of the pregnancies; the remaining 75 were excluded. The mean gestational age at screening was 28.3 (standard deviation 2.6) weeks. The prevalence of gestational diabetes was 12.8% (74/579) (95% confidence interval [CI] 10.1%-15.5%). The prevalence in the inland communities was twice as high as that in the coastal communities (18.0% v. 9.3%, p = 0.002). Women with gestational diabetes or impaired glucose tolerance tended to be older, have had more pregnancies, weigh more before pregnancy and have heavier babies than those with a normal glycemic status. INTERPRETATION: The prevalence of gestational diabetes among James Bay Cree women in northern Quebec is twice as high as that among women in the general North American population and the second highest reported in an aboriginal group worldwide.  (+info)

Prevalence of gestational diabetes mellitus among Swampy Cree women in Moose Factory, James Bay. (8/882)

BACKGROUND: Although high rates of gestational diabetes mellitus have been documented in native populations, few studies have examined rates of the disease among native Indians in Canada. The authors conducted a study to estimate the prevalence of gestational diabetes among Swampy Cree women, to identify factors predictive of the occurrence of gestational diabetes, and to identify delivery and infant outcomes related to the presence of the disease. METHODS: Information on Swampy Cree women who gave birth at Weeneebayko Hospital, Moose Factory, James Bay, Ont., between 1987 and 1995 was obtained from medical charts. Patients with and without gestational diabetes were compared. Logistic regression analysis was used to identify independent predictors of gestational diabetes. Delivery and infant outcomes that occurred secondary to gestational diabetes were also identified by means of logistic regression. RESULTS: A total of 1401 deliveries occurred at Weeneebayko Hospital over the study period, of which 1298 were included in the study. Gestational diabetes was diagnosed in 110 (8.5% [95% confidence interval (CI) 6.9%-9.9%]) of the 1298 pregnancies. Factors predictive of gestational diabetes were age 35 years or more (relative risk [RR] 4.1, 95% CI 1.5-11.7), a history of gestational diabetes in a previous pregnancy (RR 6.4, 95% CI 3.5-11.7), diastolic blood pressure of 80 mm Hg or higher at the first prenatal visit (RR 1.7, 95% CI 1.1-2.8), weight greater than 80 kg at the first prenatal visit (RR 4.9, 95% CI 1.8-12.9) and having a first-degree relative with diabetes (RR 3.0, 95% CI 1.4-6.1). The only delivery outcome independently associated with the presence of gestational diabetes was an increased likelihood of needing assisted delivery (forceps or vacuum extraction) (RR 2.8, 95% CI 1.1-7.0). Shoulder dystocia was indirectly associated with gestational diabetes owing to increased infant birth weight. Infant outcomes associated with the presence of gestational diabetes were birth weight greater than 4500 g (RR 2.4, 95% CI 1.4-3.8), hyperbilirubinemia (RR 2.9, 95% CI 1.4-6.1), hypoglycemia (RR 7.3, 95% CI 3.7-14.4) and hypocalcemia (RR 8.9, 95% CI 2.3-33.7). INTERPRETATION: Gestational diabetes occurred in a significant minority of Swampy Cree women and was associated with a number of adverse outcomes.  (+info)

This review shows a positive association between maternal gestational diabetes mellitus and offspring overweight and obesity that is attenuated significantly after adjustment for prepregnancy BMI. The relationship between maternal gestational diabetes mellitus and offspring overweight and obesity could reflect fetal programming, shared genes and/or shared environments, such as postnatal diet and physical activity. Maternal gestational hyperglycemia and subsequent fetal hyperinsulinemia may predispose offspring to increased adiposity, impaired glucose tolerance, hyperinsulinemia, and insulin resistance. Because maternal obesity is a more prevalent condition than gestational diabetes mellitus and strongly associated with offspring obesity, effective interventions addressing prepregnancy obesity need to be further explored as they may have a greater public health impact on childhood overweight and obesity than those targeting women with gestational diabetes mellitus ...

This chapter focuses on glycemic goals and monitoring methods in gestational diabetes. Hyperglycemia in gestational diabetes mellitus is detrimental to the fetus as well as the mother. Gestational diabetes mellitus is now an established risk factor for future development of diabetes in the mother. The glycemic targets in gestational diabetes mellitus are based on recommendations from the Fifth International Workshop-Conference on Gestational Diabetes Mellitus. Several monitoring methods can be employed to check for plasma sugar values, in order to take appropriate measures to effectively control glycemia. These include testing for blood glucose (venous blood samples in laboratory, or bedside glucometer-based testing), urine sugar testing, A1c testing, and some novel minimally invasive or noninvasive methods ...
Gestational diabetes is often the culmination of years of unrecognized and unmodified diabetes risk factors that lead to overt and occult clinical manifestations during pregnancy. . Despite the high and increasing rate of type 2 diabetes in Louisiana, the medical community does not have reliable estimates of the number of woman living in southern Louisiana who develop diabetes subsequent to GDM. Systematic reviews of older studies conclude that 35-60% women with gestational diabetes will develop type 2 diabetes at rates much greater than control groups who did not have glucose intolerance during pregnancy. The higher rates were in studies of particular ethnic groups in the U.S. Recently, follow-up programs elsewhere also have identified increasing rates of type 2 diabetes by 5-10 years after GDM: 9-43% type 2 diabetes in Europe and 11-21% in Asia. The frequency of type 2 diabetes is influenced by BMI, weight gain after pregnancy, family history of diabetes, fasting and postchallenge glucose ...
The management of gestational diabetes N Wah CheungCentre for Diabetes and Endocrinology Research, Westmead Hospital, and University of Sydney, NSW, AustraliaAbstract: The incidence of gestational diabetes is increasing. As gestational diabetes is associated with adverse pregnancy outcomes, and has long-term implications for both mother and child, it is important that it is recognized and appropriately managed. This review will examine the pharmacological options for the management of gestational diabetes, as well as the evidence for blood glucose monitoring, dietary and exercise therapy. The medical management of gestational diabetes is still evolving, and recent randomized controlled trials have added considerably to our knowledge in this area. As insulin therapy is effective and safe, it is considered the gold standard of pharmacotherapy for gestational diabetes, against which other treatments have been compared. The current experience is that the short acting insulin analogs lispro and aspart are

The aim of this study was to investigate the association between fasting duration before screening with 50g glucose challenge test (GCT) and the test outcome. For this cross-sectional study, we enrolled 508 low-risk pregnant women who underwent 50g GCT between the 24 and 28 weeks of gestation. We excluded women with pregestational diabetes, multiple gestations or a history of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM), and macrosomia. We evaluated fasting durations, GCT results, and demographic features. A significant positive correlation was found between fasting duration and 50g GCT values (r=0.122; p=0.006), and the best cut-off value was found to be 6.5h, with 85.85% sensitivity and 38.61% specificity (relative risk, 2.73; 95% CI, 1.893-3.936; ...

No properly conducted RCT has examined the benefit of universal or selective screening for gestational diabetes compared with no screening. Two RCTs have studied treatment versus no treatment of gestational diabetes in screening-detected populations: one recent (ACHOIS [11]) and one conducted more than 4 decades ago (a study by OSullivan and colleagues [12]). Both of these trials randomly assigned participants to treatment or no treatment of gestational diabetes on the basis of a universal screening program approach. The ACHOIS reported that dietary management, glucose monitoring, and insulin treatment as needed in 1000 women with mild gestational diabetes diagnosed after 24 weeks gestation improved the composite neonatal outcome compared with no treatment (11). The composite outcome was defined as one or more of the following: death, shoulder dystocia, bone fracture, and nerve palsy. The majority of the actual outcomes summed in this composite outcome were shoulder dystocia, an outcome not ...

Women who are diagnosed with gestational diabetes are at increased risk for developing prediabetes and type 2 diabetes. To date, there have been few interdisciplinary interventions that target predominantly ethnic minority low-income women diagnosed with gestational diabetes. Programs are needed that intervene in the prenatal period to teach women the importance of breastfeeding to improve metabolic control and infant health and continue after birth to promote improved nutrition and exercise patterns and weight loss. Using a two-group, repeated measures experimental design, this proposed study will test a 14-week intensive intervention on the benefits of breastfeeding, understanding gestational diabetes and risk of progression to prediabetes and type 2 diabetes, nutrition and exercise education, coping skills training, and physical activity (Phase I) and 3 months of continued monthly contact (Phase II) to help overweight women diagnosed with gestational diabetes improve metabolic, clinical, ...
OBJECTIVE: To assess the influence of strict metabolic control in women with insulin-treated gestational diabetes on the risk of large-for-gestational-age (LGA) newborns, the frequency of obstetrical complications and fetal outcome.. METHODS: In this prospective cohort study, 875 women were screened for gestational diabetes mellitus with a 75 g oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) between weeks 24 and 28 of gestation. The study group (n = 162) consisted of women with insulin-treated gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) and the control group (n = 713) of women with normal glucose tolerance (NGT). In the women with diabetes, strict adjustments of fasting glucose levels to 90 mg/dl and 130 mg/dl postprandially were achieved with insulin administration.. RESULTS: No increased risk for LGA newborns was observed in women with GDM and good metabolic control (16.7% vs. 12.3%; p = 0.1). In women with NGT, maternal prepregnancy BMI was significantly higher in those who delivered LGA newborns than in those ...
Purpose: : To study the relation between gestational diabetes mellitus and retinal vessels diameter in pregnancy Methods: : Included were 23 patients with gestational diabetes had been confirmed by Glucose Tolerance Test (GTT) and 28 normal pregnant women matched for age, gestational age and blood pressure. History of smoking, other systemic and ocular disease and previous ocular procedure include retinal photocoagulation considered as exclusion criterias. The diameter of the retinal arterioles was measured with a specific computer assisted program and retinal vascular caliber was summarized as central retinal artery (CRAE) and vein (CRVE) equivalents in all eyes. Results: : Out of 23 recruited patients with gestational diabetes, 10 cases were diagnosed as mild to moderate diabetic retinopathy and 13 patients without retinopathy.No significant difference was found in mean (±SD) of CRAE (143.8±12.1 μm vs. 141.0±14.9 μm, P = 0.08) in patients with impaired GTT compared to normal pregnant ...
Unlike type 1 diabetes, gestational diabetes generally does not cause birth defects. Birth defects usually originate sometime during the first trimester (before the 13th week) of pregnancy. But, the insulin resistance from the contra-insulin hormones produced by the placenta does not usually occur until approximately the 24th week. Women with gestational diabetes mellitus generally have normal blood sugar levels during the critical first trimester.. The complications of GDM are usually manageable and preventable. The key to prevention is careful control of blood sugar levels just as soon as the diagnosis is made.. Infants of mothers with gestational diabetes are vulnerable to several chemical imbalances, such as low serum calcium and low serum magnesium levels, but, in general, there are two major problems of gestational diabetes: macrosomia and hypoglycemia.. ...

Many studies have shown that plant-based diets and Mediterranean diets can lower the risk of development of gestational diabetes mellitus. Plants have been the main source of medicines since ancient times. Despite tremendous advances in medicinal chemistry, synthetic drugs have not provided cures to many diseases due to their adverse side effects or diminution in response after prolonged use. Medicinal mushrooms have been used traditionally as an anti-diabetic food for centuries especially in countries such as China, Japan, India and Korea. These are source of natural bioactive compounds. The bioactive constituents are polysaccharides, proteins, dietary fibres, lectins, lactones, alkaloids, terpenoids, sterols and phenolic compounds which have various health benefits. This review will focus on recent examples of diverse types of mushrooms that have been validated by scientific evaluation as having promising activity for the prevention and/or treatment of gestational diabetes mellitus.

diabetes; gestational; sugar; blood; insulin; glucose; diet; Gestational diabetes affects up to 5% of pregnant women and usually appears around the middle of the pregnancy. It is usually temporary and goes away after their baby is born.. What causes gestational diabetes? In pregnancy, the placenta produces hormones that help the baby to grow and develop. These hormones also block the action of the mothers insulin. This is called insulin resistance.. Because of this insulin resistance, the need for insulin in pregnancy is 2 or 3 times higher than normal. If the body is unable to produce this much insulin, gestational diabetes develops. When the pregnancy is over and the insulin needs return to normal, the diabetes usually disappears.. As gestational diabetes usually develops around the 24th to 28th week of pregnancy, the babys development is not affected. But as glucose crosses the placenta, the baby is exposed to the mothers high glucose level. This high level of glucose in the babys blood ...
HealthDay Reporter. (HealthDay News) -- Women who eat lots of potatoes before pregnancy appear more likely to develop gestational diabetes, a new study suggests.. A womans risk of gestational diabetes seemed to increase by 27 percent if she regularly consumed between two and four cups of potatoes a week before pregnancy. Five or more cups a week appeared to increase risk by 50 percent, even after researchers accounted for pre-pregnancy obesity and other potential risk factors, the study found.. The more women consumed potatoes, the greater risk they had for gestational diabetes, said senior author Dr. Cuilin Zhang, a senior investigator with the U.S. National Institute of Child Health and Human Development. Potatoes are regarded as a kind of vegetable, but not all vegetables are healthy.. However, its important to note that this study only showed an association between potato consumption and the risk of gestational diabetes -- a type of diabetes that develops during pregnancy. The study ...
Gestational diabetes, glucose intolerance with onset or first recognition during pregnancy, is a rising problem worldwide. Both non-pharmacological and pharmacological approaches to the prevention of gestational diabetes have been, and continue to be explored. Myo-inositol, an isomer of inositol, is a naturally occurring sugar commonly found in cereals, corn, legumes and meat. It is one of the intracellular mediators of the insulin signal and correlated with insulin sensitivity in type 2 diabetes. The potential beneficial effect on improving insulin sensitivity suggests that myo-inositol may be useful for women in preventing gestational diabetes. To assess if antenatal dietary supplementation with myo-inositol is safe and effective, for the mother and fetus, in preventing gestational diabetes. We searched the Pregnancy and Childbirth Groups Trials Register, ClinicalTrials.gov, WHO ICTRP (2 November 2015) and reference lists of retrieved studies. We sought published and unpublished randomised ...
People often say that each pregnancy is different. What you may experience during your first pregnancy may not be the same as your experiences in your subsequent pregnancies. However, a recent study published in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology showed that women with gestational diabetes during their first pregnancy have higher risks of developing the same condition in their subsequent pregnancies. In fact, according to this study, the risk increases with each pregnancy.. In the research, 65,132 first-time pregnant women with gestational diabetes were used as the sample population by a group of researchers led by Dr. Darius Getahun. One of the findings was that the risk of these women getting gestational diabetes during their second pregnancy is 13.2% increased. There is also an increase of 6.3% in the third pregnancy of women who initially had gestational diabetes but did not suffer from the condition during their second pregnancies. Those who have experienced gestational ...
If you are diagnosed with gestational diabetes, or you have been told you are at risk, it is natural to feel concerned. But gestational diabetes is fairly common: it affects around one in 20 pregnancies.. In the UK, all pregnant women who are considered at risk are offered a test for gestational diabetes during pregnancy. This is because identifying and treating the condition reduces the risks to you and your baby. Women are sometimes surprised to find out they have the condition as its often picked up before it shows any obvious symptoms.. There are several medical treatments that can help with gestational diabetes. However, some women are able to manage it through diet and other lifestyle factors. This means that, with the support of your specialist team, you have an important role in keeping you and your baby healthy through your pregnancy.. ...

Introduction: The development of the brain during fetal period affects the functioning of the nervous system whole of the life. Numerous maternal disorders during pregnancy can affect fetal neural development, one of which is gestational diabetes. Gestational diabetes can have a long-term negative impact on the fetal neural development. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of gestational diabetes on motor development of 12-month-old children referred to Qazvin University of Medical Sciences. Methods and Materials: In this prospective cohort study, 439 pregnant mothers referred to Qazvin University of Medical Sciences who met the inclusion criteria were sampled at 24-28 weeks of gestation. Then these women were followed up until child birth and after birth until 12 months afterwards. The process of motor development of their children at the age of 12 months was studied using the Age and Stage Questionnaire. Result: The results of this study showed that among the women who participated
Maternal overweight and obesity increase the risk of gestational diabetes mellitus. Gut microbiota composition has recently been associated with both overweight and a range of metabolic diseases. However, it has thus far been unclear whether gut microbiota is involved in the incidence of gestational diabetes.. A clinical study with the purpose to investigate the impact of two food supplements, fish oil and probiotics (containing Lactobacillus rhamnosus HN001 and Bifidobacterium animalis ssp. lactis 420), on maternal and child health was conducted at the University of Turku and Turku University Hospital in Finland. The microbiota was analyzed from fecal samples of 270 overweight and obese women using the state of the art analytical and bioinformatics methods based on deep sequencing metagenomics analysis.. Metagenomics is a next-generation sequencing tool that provides species level resolution of the gut microbiota composition. Metagenomics also provides information on the bacterial genes and ...
An overview of glucose metabolism in pregnancy is very important and will give better understanding of GDM. During pregnancy there could be changes in maternal metabolism.1 There is a progressive increase in insulin resistance with an increase in maternal adiposity and decrease in insulin sensitivity due to the effect of hormones from the placenta. Changes in insulin sensitivity is accompanied by changes in glucose levels. This condition rapidly reverses upon delivery in normal women. The glycaemic control in the mother is dependent on the balance between pancreatic b-cell secretion of insulin, clearance of insulin and action of insulin in liver, muscle and fat.3 Women who are unable to respond properly to the changes of pregnancy, such as increase in insulin resistance, become hyperglycaemic leading to gestational diabetes mellitus. The diagnostic criteria for GDM have changed over years and in 2010, the International Association of Diabetes and Pregnancy Study Group (IADPSG) recommended ...
The appropriateness of universal screening for gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) has been strongly questioned, since it does not satisfy ethical principles for screening. The aims of these studies were to determine the prevalence of GDM, expressed in terms of impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) and diabetes mellitus (DM), to evaluate different screening models using traditional anamnestic risk factors and repeated random B-glucose, to determine whether GDM increases risks for maternal complications such as preeclampsia, and to determine whether IGT during pregnancy, if left untreated, is associated with increased maternal or neonatal morbidity. Of 4,918 pregnant non-diabetic women attending maternal health care, 73.5% agreed to have a 75 g oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT). GDM was diagnosed in 1.7%, IGT in 1.3% and DM in 0.4%. Traditional risk factor criteria were fulfilled by 15.8%. Prior GDM and a prior macrosomic infant showed the highest association with GDM. No selective or two-step ...
We read with interest the article by Duran et al. (1) in which the authors sought to evaluate the outcomes and the cost-effectiveness of the one-step International Association of the Diabetes and Pregnancy Study Groups (IADPSG) criteria for screening and diagnosis of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) compared with the two-step Carpenter-Coustan (CC) criteria. Their findings show that the IADPSG criteria increased the GDM rate (35.5% vs. 10.6%) but improved pregnancy outcomes, such as decreases in gestational hypertension, prematurity, cesarean section, and small and large for gestational age. Additionally, IADPSG criteria were estimated to save more than €14,000 per 100 women studied when compared with the CC criteria. However, a critical methodological problem has to be addressed. In their methods section, they state that for the two-step approach they performed the OSullivan test (50-g glucose challenge test) after a 12-h fast with no dietary restrictions. It is well known since the ...

Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is the most common metabolic complication in pregnancy and is associated with substantial maternal and neonatal morbidity. The standard of care for GDM in most developed countries is universal mid- to late- pregnancy (24-28 weeks gestation) glucose testing. While earlier diagnosis and treatment could improve pregnancy outcomes, tools for early identification of risk for GDM are not commonly used in practice. Existing models for predicting GDM risk within the first trimester of pregnancy based on maternal risk factors perform only modestly in the clinical setting. Heavy reliance on history of GDM to predict GDM development in the current pregnancy prevents these tools from being applicable to nulliparous women (i.e., women who have never given birth). In order to offer timely preventive intervention and enhanced antenatal care to nulliparous women, we need to be able to accurately identify those at high risk for GDM early in pregnancy.

Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) during pregnancy is a serious complication in both mother and fetus. Most incidences occur during late pregnancy in women with type 1 diabetes mellitus. We report the rare case of a woman with type 1 diabetes mellitus who had normal glucose tolerance during the first trimester but developed DKA during late pregnancy. Although she had initially tested positive for screening of gestational diabetes mellitus during the first trimester, subsequent diagnostic 75-g oral glucose tolerance tests showed normal glucose tolerance. She developed DKA with severe general fatigue in late pregnancy. The patients general condition improved after treatment for ketoacidosis, and she vaginally delivered a healthy infant at term. The presence of DKA caused by the onset of diabetes should be considered, even if the patient shows normal glucose tolerance during the first trimester. ...

Serum from pregnant women with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) increased the expression of fatty acid-binding protein 4 (FABP4) mRNA and decreased the expression of adiponectin mRNA in primary subcutaneous human pre-adipocytes. After primary human pre-adipocytes were cultured using serum from pregnant women with GDM and normal pregnant women for 24 hours, real-time polymerase chain reaction and Western blot was performed. (A) Expression of FABP4 mRNA in adipocytes cultured in serum from pregnant women with GDM was higher than that from the normal group. (B) Expression of adiponectin mRNA in adipocytes cultured in serum from mothers with GDM was lower than that from the normal group. (C) FABP4 and adiponectin protein level in adipocyte were determined by Western blot (representative blots are shown). (D) Band densities in the Western blot were quantified using ImageJ software. Trends toward increased FABP4 protein expression and decreased adiponectin protein expression in GDM group were ...

During pregnancy, a significant number of women suffer from gestational or pre-existing type 1 or type 2 diabetes.[1-3] Of these three types, gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is the most common, with a worldwide prevalence rate of 16.4%, and is constantly on the rise.[4] GDM is defined as carbohydrate intolerance resulting in hyperglycaemia of variable severity with onset or first recognition during pregnancy.[5] The recent World Health Organization report[6] suggests that the diagnosis of GDM should be considered positive if the pregnant women have either a plasma glucose level between 5.1 and 6.9 mmol/L under fasting conditions, or more than 10.0 mmol/L 1 h after 75 g glucose intake, or between 8.5 and 11.0 mmol/L 2 h after glucose intake.. Pregnancies with GDM are usually high risk and the condition can trigger many adverse outcomes for the mother as well as the neonate.[7] Some of the most common are pre-eclampsia, perineal trauma, pregnancy-induced hypertension, and increased chances ...
The purpose of this study was to investigate the expression of intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) in umbilical vascular of pregnant women with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) and the clinical significance. A total of 103 pregnant women with GDM were selected in the First Hospital of Lanzhou University and the Second Affiliated Hospital of Xian Jiaotong University from January 2016 to December 2016 as GDM group. At the same time, 106 normal pregnant women were selected as control group. i) General information of the two groups of pregnant women including age, gestational age, gravida, parity, BMI, systolic blood pressure and diastolic blood pressure were compared; ii) the laboratory indicators of the two groups of pregnant women including fasting blood glucose, glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c), umbilical cord arterial pH, partial pressure of oxygen (pO2) and carbon dioxide (pCO2) in umbilical artery were compared; iii) expression of ICAM-1 in umbilical vascular was detected by ...

I have often blogged about the impact of excess weight in pregnancy on both the health of the mother and the infant.. The need to manage gestational diabetes, a frequent complication in overweight and obese women, is well established but the evidence for mild cases is less clear.. This question was now addressed by Mark Landon and colleagues on behalf of the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development Maternal-Fetal Medicine Units Network in a paper just published in the New England Journal of Medicine.. This multicenter trial randomised a total of 958 women who were in the 24th to 31st week of gestation and who met the criteria for mild gestational diabetes mellitus (i.e., an abnormal result on an oral glucose-tolerance test but a fasting glucose level below 95 mg per deciliter [5.3 mmol per liter]) to usual prenatal care (control group) or dietary intervention, self-monitoring of blood glucose, and insulin therapy, if necessary (treatment group).. Although ...
In this prospective birth cohort study, we have found that at mean age 15.5 years, maternal gestational diabetes and glycosuria were associated with higher mean fat mass and BMI z scores in simple unadjusted analyses, with the association attenuating somewhat in multivariable models. Offspring of mothers who had existing or gestational diabetes during their pregnancy had higher fasting glucose, but this was not accompanied by an increase in fasting insulin. In contrast, offspring of mothers who experienced glycosuria in pregnancy had higher fasting insulin. We found little evidence of associations between maternal diabetes or glycosuria and a wider range of cardiometabolic risk factors beyond glucose and insulin (i.e., no associations with dBP, sBP, lipids, or CRP).. In a previously published study from the same cohort, we demonstrated that gestational diabetes and glycosuria were associated with greater offspring BMI, waist circumference, and fat mass assessed when the offspring were aged 9-11 ...
Lycium barbarum L. (LBL) has beneficial effects on gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) but the related mechanism remains unclear. Polysaccharides of LBL (LBLP) are the main bioactive components of LBL. miR-33, ATP-binding cassette transporter A1 (ABCA1) and sterol regulatory element-binding transcription 1 (SREBF1) affect lipid profiles, which are associated with GDM risk. LBLP may exert protective against GDM by affecting these molecules. Four LBLP fractions: LBLP-I, LBLP-II, LBLP-III, and LBLP-IV were isolated from LBL and further purified by using DEAE-Sephadex column. The effects of purified each fraction on pancreatic beta cells were comparatively evaluated. A total of 158 GDM patients were recruited and randomly divided into LBL group (LG) and placebo group (CG). miR-33 levels, lipid profiles, insulin resistance and secretory functions were measured. The association between serum miR-33 levels and lipid profiles were evaluated by using Spearmans rank-order correlation test. After 4-week therapy,
The prevalence of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is increasing globally, generating significant short and long term health risks for the mother and baby. Medical nutrition therapy is known to be the primary management strategy for GDM, and positive outcomes are heavily reliant on an individuals self care strategies. Unlike other westernised countries, no evidence based dietary guidelines exist for GDM in Australia. Ensuring women gain sufficient knowledge of the dietary management of GDM with adequate provision of health education can positively influence self care outcomes. The aims of this study were to 1) develop and validate a questionnaire to assess womens knowledge of the dietary management of GDM, 2) determine knowledge of the dietary management of GDM in a cohort of women currently diagnosed with this condition and 3) determine GDM information sources and level of trust invested in these sources. A total of 153 dietitans and 10 women with previous GDM were recruited to pilot the
Objectives: This study examines the accuracy of Gestational Diabetes Mellitus (GDM) case-ascertainment in routinely collected data. Methods: Retrospective cohort study analysed routinely collected data from all births at Cairns Base Hospital, Australia, from 1 January 2004 to 31 December 2010 in the Cairns Base Hospital Clinical Coding system (CBHCC) and the Queensland Perinatal Data Collection (QPDC). GDM case ascertainment in the National Diabetes Services Scheme (NDSS) and Cairns Diabetes Centre (CDC) data were compared. Results: From 2004 to 2010, the specificity of GDM case-ascertainment in the QPDC was 99%. In 2010, only 2 of 225 additional cases were identified from the CDC and CBHCC, suggesting QPDC sensitivity is also over 99%. In comparison, the sensitivity of the CBHCC data was 80% during 2004-2010. The sensitivity of CDC data was 74% in 2010. During 2010, 223 births were coded as GDM in the QPDC, and the NDSS registered 247 women with GDM from the same postcodes, suggesting ...

MONDAY, Jan. 23, 2017 (HealthDay News) -- Gestational diabetes and a previous bout of depression can increase a first-time mothers risk of postpartum depression, a new study suggests.. The analysis of data from more than 700,000 women in Sweden showed that gestational diabetes (developing diabetes during pregnancy) alone raised the risk for postpartum depression.. However, that risk rose even more if a woman had previously been diagnosed with depression.. Most practitioners think of these as two isolated and very different conditions, but we now understand gestational diabetes and postpartum depression should be considered together, said study lead author Michael Silverman. Hes an assistant professor of psychiatry at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City.. While having diabetes increases [postpartum depression] risk for all women, for those women who have had a past depressive episode, having diabetes during pregnancy makes it 70 percent more likely that they will ...
Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) in singleton pregnancies represent a high-risk scenario. The incidence, associated factors and outcomes of GDM in twin pregnancies is not known in the UAE. This was five years retrospective analysis of hospital records of twin pregnancies in the city of Al Ain, Abu Dhabi, UAE. Relevant data with regards to the pregnancy, maternal and birth outcomes and incidence of GDM was extracted from two major hospitals in the city. Regression models assessed the relationship between socio-demographic and pregnancy-related variables and GDM, and the associations between GDM and maternal and fetal outcomes at birth. A total of 404 women and their neonates were part of this study. The study population had a mean age of 30.1 (SD: 5.3), overweight or obese (66.5%) and were majority multiparous (66.6%). High incidence of GDM in twin pregnancies (27.0%). While there were no statistical differences in outcomes of the neonates, GDM mothers were older (OR: 1.09, 95% CI: 1.06-1.4) and

Relevant data with regards to the pregnancy, maternal and birth outcomes and incidence of GDM was extracted from two major hospitals in the city. Regression models assessed the relationship between socio-demographic and pregnancy-related variables and GDM, and the associations between GDM and maternal and fetal outcomes at birth. A total of 404 women and their neonates were part of this study. The study population had a mean age of 30.1 (SD: 5.3), overweight or obese (66.5%) and were majority multiparous (66.6%). High incidence of GDM in twin pregnancies (27.0%). While there were no statistical differences in outcomes of the neonates, GDM mothers were older (OR: 1.09, 95% CI: 1.06-1.4) and
Background: Gestational Diabetes Mellitus (GDM) is an emerging problem which affects a large number of pregnant women in India. Women with GDM have been shown to have abnormal lipid profiles with higher serum triacylglycerol concentrations but lower LDL levels. Early detection reduces adverse maternal and foetal outcome. The Lipid Accumulation Product (LAP) is an index of fat distribution and assessment which can be easily measured in an outpatient setup.Methods: This study was a hospital based case control study. Cases were 30 pregnant women, newly diagnosed with GDM in their 2nd trimester while controls were 30 apparently healthy pregnant women without risk factors for GDM. Lipid accumulation product (LAP) was computed by multiplying a sex-specific estimate of waist circumference and the fasting triglyceride concentration, LAP = (WC [cm] - 58) x TGL [mmol/L].Result: The mean age of patients with GDM was higher when compared to controls. (28.17 ± 3.34 vs 24.40 ± 3.07, p | 0.0001) The
The role of the dietitian in the management of Gestational Diabetes Mellitus (GDM) is highly recognised. However, consensuses on dietetic approaches for the management of GDM in Malaysia are scarce. This study aimed to examine the current dietetic practices in the management of GDM and to compare nutrient recommendations provided by dietitians to those of several established international guidelines. A survey was conducted among dietitians who were working in government affiliated hospitals across Malaysia. Of 148 questionnaires posted to dietitians, a total of 101 were returned representing an overall response rate of 68%. The majority of the dietitians (80%) reported that they see women with GDM in their daily practices with more than half (53%) having counselled 5 to 9 women per day during the previous 3 months. Flexible carbohydrate exchanges (82%) was the most common recommendation on carbohydrate intake followed by advice regarding small frequent meals spread over the day (62%) and portion ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Acute fatty liver during pregnancy and gestational diabetes insipidus. T2 - A case report. AU - Wang, H. J.. AU - Chou, Tsung-Hsien. AU - Lee, Y. C.. AU - Au, H. K.. PY - 2020/6. Y1 - 2020/6. N2 - Acute fatty liver during pregnancy (AFLP) is an emergency and potentially fatal condition occurring during the peripartum period. It is characterized by fatty microvascular infiltration of hepatocytes and has an incidence rate of approximately one in 7,000 to one in 20,000 pregnancies. It may induce profound liver failure and can be accompanied by renal failure, polydipsia/polyuria, disseminated intravascular coagulation, hypoglycemia, and encephalopathy. Emergency delivery at the appropriate time is crucial to control the development of AFLP. Gestational diabetes insipidus (GDI) is another rare disorder characterized by polyuria, polydipsia, and dehydration. It has an incidence rate of 2-4 cases/100,000 pregnancies and develops during the third trimester. Here the authors present the ...
Researchers in Norway found that when they randomly assigned 855 pregnant women to either exercise 3 times a week or to regular prenatal care alone, the exercisers were no less likely to develop gestational diabetes, says an article by Reuters. All of the women in the clinical trial were in their 18-22-week range of pregnancy. Women in the exercise program took an hour-long class once a week for 12 weeks-low-impact aerobics, plus strengthening and stretching exercises. They also were given an at-home workout to do twice a week.. By the third trimester, 7% of the exercise group had been diagnosed with gestational diabetes, versus 6% of the comparison group.. According to Reuters, Rita W. Driggers, MD, an obstetrician and director of the maternal-fetal medicine fellowship program at Washington Hospital Center in Washington, DC, who was not involved in the study, said that the findings do not mean exercise is no help to pregnant women.

abstract = Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is today universally diagnosed during late pregnancy. Treating hyperglycaemia during pregnancy reduces the risk of complications, the effect of interventions is however limited due to the late diagnosis. It is thus important to identify biomarkers reaching a high precision for GDM development in early pregnancy. Here we aim to investigate soluble CD163 (sCD163) and soluble tumour necrosis factor-like weak inducer of apoptosis (sTWEAK) in early pregnancy GDM and their association to the development of later glucose intolerance. In this case-control study, women diagnosed with GDM in early pregnancy (n = 70) at Lund University Hospital, Lund, Sweden in 2011-2015 were age- and BMI matched to pregnant volunteers without diabetes (n = 70) recruited in early pregnancy from maternal health care centres in 2014-2015. Plasma levels of sCD163 and sTWEAK were analysed using commercial ELISA. Plasma levels of sCD163 did not differ between patients with and ...
Background: Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is a potential risk factor for pregnant women because it leads to various complications during pregnancy and childbirth; thus, GDM directly increases the risk of maternal and neonatal mortality and morbidity. Aim: To estimate the prevalence of GDM and evaluate maternal and fetal outcome in pregnant women with GDM. Materials and Methods: This was a prospective study carried out over a period of 1 year. After informed consent and ethical clearance, a total of 8970 pregnant women were recruited and followed; they underwent universal screening for diabetes as per the Diabetes in Pregnancy Study Group India criteria. Three-hundred and eighty women were diagnosed with diabetes, of this 29 were found to be type 2 diabetes and 351 pregnant women were diagnosed as gestational diabetes. Women with gestational diabetes were followed till 6 weeks of postpartum. After enrollment, 290 women were treated with regular insulin and neutral protamine Hagedorn insulin ...

The first gestational diabetes sign may be the present of high-risk symptoms. The more you have, the higher the probability you will develop GDM. If you are over the age of 25, have an immediate-family relative with diabetes of any type, are overweight, have a diagnosis of pre-diabetes prior to pregnancy or developed GDM during a previous pregnancy, you are more likely to develop GDM, reports the National Diabetes Information Clearinghouse.. One risk of GDM is having a large baby. If you have had a baby who weighed more than 9 lbs., it may indicate you are susceptible to the condition. Some ethnicities have a higher risk for developing the condition, including those of African-American, Asian-American, American-Indian, Pacific Islander or Hispanic/Latino descent.. ...

Of the 146 CNMs who provided postpartum care and responded to the survey (62.2% response rate), 50.4% reported screening women with GDM-affected pregnancies for abnormal glucose tolerance at the postpartum visit. Of CNMs who screened postpartum, only 48.4% used fasting blood sugar or the 2-hour oral glucose tolerance test. Although 86.2% of all responding CNMs reported that they inform women with recent histories of GDM of their increased risk for type 2 diabetes mellitus, only 63.1% counseled these women to exercise regularly and 23.3% reported referring overweight/obese women to a diet support group or other nutrition counseling. CNMs reported that identification of community resources for lifestyle interventions and additional training in postpartum screening guidelines may help to improve postpartum care ...
OBJECTIVE: This study tested the hypothesis that a standardized dose of jelly beans could be used as an alternative sugar source to the 50-g glucose beverage to screen for gestational diabetes mellitus. STUDY DESIGN: One hundred sixty pregnant women at 24 to 28 weeks gestation were recruited for a prospective study to compare 2 sugar sources for serum glucose response, side effects, preference, and ability to detect gestational diabetes mellitus. Patients were randomly assigned to consume 50-g glucose beverage or 28 jelly beans (50 g simple carbohydrate). Serum glucose values were determined 1 hour later. The test was later repeated with the other sugar source. Finally, a 100-g 3-hour oral glucose tolerance test was performed. Participants completed a questionnaire recording subjective outcome variables. American Diabetes Association criteria were used to interpret all test results. RESULTS: Among 136 participants completing the study no significant differences were found between 1-hour serum ...
Chinese women with a history of gestational diabetes and a higher concentration of serum C-peptide are more likely to develop prediabetes and type 2 diabetes in the 5 years after delivery, according to findings published in the Journal of Diabetes and Its Complications. “Our study suggested that elevated C-peptide levels may be a predictor of diabetes and prediabetes,” Gang Hu, MD,
Family history and odds of developing GDM. The odds of developing GDM for Jamaican women with a family history of early onset autosomal dominant type 2 diabetes is nine times that of those without a family history of the disease (95% confidence interval: 5.00 16.38, P , 0.0001). Mutation screen- ing via SSCP (18), sequencing (2), and linkage analysis was negative for the six known MODY genes (HNF-4a, GCK, HNF-1a, IPF-1, HNF-1b, and Neuro-D1).. DISCUSSION. The main ethnic groups in Jamaica are Negro/Black (90.5%), mixed/ Negro (7.3%), and East Indian (1.3%); other racial groups are less than 1% (20). Marked variations in GDM prevalence among different racial/ethnic groups have been documented, with higher prevalence among Native-Americans, Asians, and African-Americans (8, 21, 22). GDM incidence usually ranges from 3% 5%, and although an incidence rate higher than 11% is rare, up to 14.3% has been reported (6, 21 24).. In this study, GDM incidence among Jamaican women with a family history of ...
By Andrew M. SeamanNEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Reinforcing an already common practice, a government-backed panel says women should be screened for gestational diabetes after 24 weeks of pregnancy even if they dont have symptoms.The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) says all pregnant women who have not been previously diagnosed with diabetes should be given a blood test for the condition, which increases the risk of complications during and after birth.Gestational diabetes is an important condition to consider, Dr. Wanda Nicholson told Reuters Health. It affects two people - a mother and her offspring.Nicholson is an immediate former member of the USPSTF and an associate professor in the Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Medicine.It doesnt really say anything different than whats already out there, but its going to be one more piece of support to the practice thats already in place, Dr. Yvette LaCoursiere told
Being overweight or obese before pregnancy increases a womans risk of developing gestational diabetes, which, in turn, increases the risk of maternal and fetal complications and type 2 diabetes after pregnancy.
Several clinical studies have investigated the potential effect of dietary myo-inositol supplementation on the prevention of GDM in high-risk women.. In a retrospective study conducted in pregnant women affected by PCOS, DAnna et al.14 observed that myo-inositol administration, throughout the pregnancy course, may reduce the prevalence of GDM. In particular, they demonstrated a lower prevalence of GDM in PCOS women who achieved conception on myo-inositol supplement and continued this regimen during pregnancy, compared with PCOS women who conceived on metformin and discontinued it after the diagnosis of pregnancy (17.4 vs. 54%, P = 0,001).. Another open-label RCT15 reported a significant decrease of GDM incidence in non-obese women, with a family history of T2D, treated with myo-inositol and folic acid from the end of the first trimester throughout the remainder of the pregnancy compared with similar control subjects treated with folic acid alone (6 vs. 15.3%, P = 0.04). Moreover, fetal ...

In the Aboriginal community, due to urbanisation and a shift from the hunter-gatherer lifestyle to a more westernised lifestyle, there has been a reduction in physical activity. Physical activity, as mentioned also has social and community connotations for Aboriginal people; the social aspect of physical activity is an important factor in working out interventions aimed at increasing exercise. Thus, a program that is aimed at early detection and primary intervention with a better understanding of indigenous culture can have a better therapeutic outcome than one usually designed for the general population. [3][4] There are currently limited exercise guidelines that specifically target the Indigenous women. It is important to target this population so that Indigenous Australians may be appropriately educated on what resources are potentially available. The frequency, type, duration and intensity of the exercise program should be tailored to each individuals needs. General guidelines are: ...

Among almost 1000 girls with Rotterdam diagnosis-confirmed PCOS, we found a higher incidence of GDM in 19 percent, 2-3 times higher than the KPNC history rate of 6%-8% [18]. Our incidence of GDM among women with PCOS is higher than anticipated at 14% when PCOS was identified exclusively by coded analysis [3], without chart review for increased cohort specificity. We found that women with PCOS who had been of Asian race had significantly higher risk of GDM, consistent with previous observations for the general population [18]. For women with PCOS who underwent a GDM pregnancy, the subsequent incidence of diabetes has been 2.8 per 100 person-years total and fourfold higher if pharmacologic therapy for GDM was demanded. In other GDM cohorts not chosen for PCOS, insulin therapy was associated with 3-5-fold higher risk of postdelivery diabetes compared to no insulin therapy [19-21].. Its estimated that 10%-50 percent of women with GDM develop diabetes throughout the 5-year span after delivery [12, ...
