Macrosomia (birthweight | or = 4,500 gm) is associated with increased perinatal morbidity and mortality. Although past studies have evaluated risk factors for macrosomia, little is known about the effect of a prior macrosomic birth on the risk for a macrosomic infant in a subsequent birth. To assess the risk for delivery of a macrosomic infant subsequent to a previous
The prevalence of fetal macrosomia in developed countries has increased by some 15-25% in recent decades, an increase largely attributed to increasing maternal obesity and diabetes. Risk factors for macrosomia include male fetal sex, high parity, maternal age, and height, post-term pregnancy, and pre-gestational or gestational diabetes. Neonatal and obstetric complications include perinatal asphyxia and death, shoulder dystocia, increased risk … ...
C-section isnt necessarily the best option for handling fetal macrosomia, a condition diagnosed in infants with a birth weight over 8.8 pounds.
Introduction: Macrosomia is usually defined by the delivery of a child over 4000 g at term. Because of the margins of error, the obstetrician must take into account, in addition to ultrasound, the constitutional and acquired factors of the mother in order to be able to prevent the complications expected during the delivery of a large fetus. Material and method: We carried out a cross-sectional, descriptive, 12-month study in a level 2 hospital in southern France (Montélimar). The aim of the study was to assess the prevalence of macrosomia, to identify the epidemiological characteristics of the patients, to specify the management of obstetrics and complications in this hospital. Results: We recorded 141 births with a weight greater than or equal to 4000 g. That is a rate of 7.95%. The average age of our patients is 30 years. Half of them had a BMI of less than 25 and were not diabetic. 75% of the patients gave birth by a low-dose route. The sex ratio of the children is male to female 2:1.
The rate of gestational diabetes and fetal macrosomia is increasing. Moreover, it appears that many macrosomic infants are born to non-diabetic mothers. However, this presents the question of whether our current accepted means of diagnosis is reflecting the true prevalence of GDM. The 3-hour GTT measures glycemic control over a limited period of time. A more prolonged period of monitoring makes more physiologic sense, as it would paint a picture of a patients overall trend before a diagnosis can be confirmed or excluded. Given the ability of the CGMS and capillary glucose monitor to follow glycemic trends over an extended time period, these methods may prove more effective at identifying patients with abnormal glucose tolerance. As these modalities test the patients in their native environments, the effect of dietary changes prior to the testing period may be minimized, potentially providing an more accurate assessment of abnormal glucose utilization. Furthermore, both modalities should be more ...
We assessed the factors influencing the birth weight of infants born to 83 women with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) over a 5-yr period. Maternal glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1) concentrations at delivery correlated with the percentile birth-weight ratios (r = .43, P , .001) and indicated that ∼18% of variance in the birth weight could be ascribed to glycemic control in the third trimester. Fetal macrosomia occurred in 22 (27%) pregnancies. When 20 of these pregnancies were compared closely with 20 nonmacrosomic pregnancies in diabetic women, the mothers of macrosomic infants were found to be more obese, have a history of previous macrosomic birth, and have higher concentrations of serum human placental lactogen and urinary estriols in the third trimester. Macrosomic pregnancy was further distinguished by accelerated fetal growth (judged by serial ultrasonography) from the 32nd wk of gestation and by biochemical (but asymptomatic) hypoglycemia in the neonate. In our study, no ...
Summary. Background: A too low or a too high birth weight has been linked to adverse health risks in both a short and long term perspective. In Norway the prevalence of macrosomic infants(>4000g and 4500g) has increased in the last years. Identifying factors that affect birth weight: are of crucial interest in order to prevent problems pertaining to infants that are born too large. In this study maternal energy intake, energy-adjusted intake of macronutrients and intake of fiber, were examined to identify possible associations with birth weight. Maternal diet was also described.. Design: Cohort study. Setting: Dept. of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Rikshospitalet-Radiumhospitalet Medical Centre, Oslo, Norway.. Subjects:. A total of 553 pregnant women and their infants. The subjects were followed through pregnancy and delivery during the period of 2002-2005.. Methods: The pregnant womens dietary intake during both the second and third trimester of pregnancy was ascertained in gestational week 14-16 ...

Nonhuman primate models of gestational diabetes have produced fetopathies most similar to those of the human infant of the mother with gestational diabetes (IGDM). Fetal hyperglycemia, hyperinsulinemia, macrosomia, selective organomegaly, intrauterine death, and placental hyperplasia are hallmarks of the fetopathy of the IGDM. The chronic infusion of insulin into the fetus of a normal pregnant rhesus monkey results in fetal hyperinsulinemia with normal to low plasma metabolic substrate concentrations. Under these conditions, fetal hyperinsulinemia is sufficient to cause fetal growth and hormone changes observed in the human IGDM. Our studies provide evidence that the soft tissue hyperplasia in the fetal macrosomia syndromes in humans and nonhuman primates in which fetal hyperinsulinemia is observed is the direct result of that chronic in utero hyperinsulinemia.. ...

The most common cause of IUGR is an abnormality in the placenta that prevents the fetus from receiving the proper amount of oxygen and nutrients. A number of other factors can increase the risk of IUGR, including maternal factors such as cigarette smoking, high blood pressure and alcohol or drug abuse. According to the American Academy of Family Physicians, diabetes in the mother doubles the risk of fetal macrosomia and is the most common cause of the abnormality. Genetics can also contribute to macrosomia, as well as excessive maternal weight gain before or during the pregnancy. ...
Results : A total of 7,456 women were included in the analysis. Total GWG was 12.1 kg (SD=5.9) and GWG from the 1st trimester to delivery 10.9 kg (SD=4.8). The prevalence of SGA was 6.6%, LGA, 14.9%, LBW, 6.5% and macrosomia, 4.7%. For all charts, women who gained weight in the lowest centiles presented higher prevalences of SGA and LBW in comparison to those on the highest centiles, while women with gains in the highest centiles, presented higher prevalences of LGA and macrosomia. L charts presented a better performance to predict outcomes, i.e., women with gains in the highest centiles were associated with increased odds of LGA and macrosomia and those in the lowest centiles with increased odds for SGA and LBW. Analysis based on H charts provided similar results. The poorest performance was observed for I charts, in which only women with gains on the higher centiles were associated with the occurrence of LGA (Figure).. ...
Women with either Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes are at risk for several complications, some of which are specific to pregnancy and some to their diabetes. All of these complications occur more commonly in women with poor blood sugar control.. Women with long-standing pregestational poorly controlled Type 1 diabetes who already have significant vascular complications (eye and kidney problems in particular) from their disease are at particularly high risk for further complications during pregnancy. Preconception evaluation and management may significantly improve pregnancy outcome.. Women with pregnancies complicated by Gestational Diabetes or recently diagnosed Type 2 diabetes are at less risk for vascular complications. They are at increased risk for fetal macrosomia (large baby), cesarean delivery, and for developing problems associated with high blood pressure during pregnancy.. Eye Problems. If diabetes has already caused damage to the small blood vessels of the eye (retinopathy), this damage may ...
The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) has released an opinion statement on issues specific to pregnancy in obese women. Women who are obese are at increased risk of complications of pregnancy such as gestational hypertension and diabetes, preeclampsia, fetal macrosomia, spontaneous abortion, cesarean delivery, neural tube defects in the fetus, and stillbirth.

Perlman syndrome (PS) (also called renal hamartomas, nephroblastomatosis and fetal gigantism) is a rare overgrowth disorder present at birth. It is characterized by polyhydramnios and fetal overgrowth, including macrocephaly, neonatal macrosomia, visceromegaly, dysmorphic facial features, and an increased risk for Wilms tumor at an early age. The prognosis for Perlman syndrome is poor and it is associated with a high neonatal mortality. Perlman syndrome is an uncommon genetic disorder grouped with overgrowth syndrome in which an abnormal increase is often noted at birth in the size of the body or a body part of the infant. The disorder, also called renal hamartomas, nephroblastomatosis and fetal gigantism, has also been grouped with Renal cell carcinoma. The characteristic features include polyhydramnios, fetal overgrowth, including macrocephaly, neonatal macrosomia, visceromegaly, dysmorphic facial features, and an increased risk for Wilms tumor at an early age. The gene thought to cause some ...
We provide some of the first empirical evidence of maternal and fetal health effects of working during pregnancy by using a unique dataset from the New Jersey Department of Health that includes information not only on pregnancy and birth outcomes but also on maternal employment. We match the mothers occupation with the Metabolic Equivalent of Task, provided by the Census Occupational Classification System and used as a measure for the strenuousness of the work activities performed. We find robust evidence that working in a relatively more strenuous job during pregnancy raises the likelihood of fetal macrosomia by about 1.5 percentage points. There are no statistically or economically significant effects on other birth outcomes. Our study further indicates an under-studied link between gestational diabetes (a known risk factor for fetal macrosomia) and intensive physical activities at work during pregnancy, potentially mediated by disrupted sleep due to greater work intensity. You may purchase ...
PLAN: Women who present for prenatal care are routinely screened for gestational diabetes (GDM) with a one-hour 50gm oral glucose challenge test (GCT). This screening occurs at the first prenatal visit if risk factors (marked obesity, prior pregnancy affected by GDM, prior macrosomic infant, glycosuria, strong family history of diabetes) for GDM are identified on intake history. If no risk factors for GDM are identified or if initial screening is negative, the GCT is administered between 24-28 weeks gestation. At our institution, the GCT is considered positive if, one hour after ingestion of a 50gm oral glucose solution, the serum glucose is greater than or equal to 135mg/dl. This screening cutoff varies among medical treatment facilities. Positive screening tests are followed by a diagnostic oral glucose tolerance test (GTT). A positive diagnosis requires that two or more thresholds be met or exceeded. Women with the diagnosis of gestational diabetes will receive dietary counseling and ...
Objective. To investigate whether differences exist in adverse pregnancy outcomes between morbidly obese (body mass index (BMI, kg/m2) 40 - 49.9) and super-obese women (BMI ≤50). Methods. A prospective cohort study was undertaken at Tygerberg Hospital, a referral centre in the Western Cape Province of South Africa, of morbidly obese and super-obese pregnant women recruited from the antenatal clinic. Data were collected from the files 6 weeks after delivery. Primary outcomes included hypertension, diabetes mellitus and fetal macrosomia. Secondary outcomes included baseline characteristics, previous complications, antenatal and peripartum complications, and short-term neonatal outcomes. Results. Sixty-six morbidly obese and 46 super-obese women were enrolled. Super-obese women experienced significantly higher incidences of pre-eclampsia (24% v. 9%; p=0.03) and interuterine growth restriction (13% v. 2%; p=0.02) than morbidly obese women, and both groups had a high incidence of gestational diabetes (24%

Nature typically prepares the cervix for delivery in the most efficient, comfortable way. However, if your health care provider is concerned about your health or your babys health or your pregnancy continues two weeks past your due date, inducing labor might be the best option.. Why the concern after two weeks? When a pregnancy lasts longer than 42 weeks, amniotic fluid might begin to decrease and theres an increased risk of having a baby significantly larger than average (fetal macrosomia). Theres also an increased risk of C-section, fetal inhalation of fecal waste (meconium aspiration) and stillbirth. ...

Methods: The study group included 112 women (singleton pregnancy, and GDM diagnosed following WHO criteria), and as controlled subjects, 159 matched healthy pregnant women and their newborn babies were selected. A sample of cord blood was obtained at delivery. The cord bloods insulin, glucose, and lipids (total cholesterol, high-density cholesterol, low- density cholesterol, and triglyceride) were determined. The relationships between these metabolic parameters and large for gestational age (LGA) were also assessed ...
Babies with macrosomia weigh but the risk of complications is significantly greater when a baby is have unmanaged high blood sugar levels from diabetes or.
In the medical literature, the term macrosomia is also used to refer to this pathological condition. Gigantism in children begins to progress at a time when the physiological processes of ossification have not fully come to an end. More often, the disease is diagnosed in males between the ages of 7 and 13, but the appearance of the first symptoms may also occur during puberty. Pathology arises and rapidly develops throughout the period of body growth. Usually by the end of the puberty, the individuals height reaches 2 meters. In women, this figure may be slightly lower - up to 1.9 meters. It is also worth noting that the proportionality of parts of the body is not violated. What is remarkable, usually parents of patients with gigantism have quite normal growth. Medical statistics are such that on average the disease is diagnosed in 3 people out of 1000 ...

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 ...

AU - Rosenn, Barak. PY - 2005/1/1. Y1 - 2005/1/1. N2 - We sought to investigate the association between glyburide dose, degree of severity in gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM), level of glycemic control, and pregnancy outcome in insulin- and glyburide-treated patients. In a secondary analysis of our previous randomized study, 404 women were analyzed. The association among glyburide dose, severity of GDM, and selected maternal and neonatal factors was evaluated. Severity levels of GDM were stratified by fasting plasma glucose (FPG) from the oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT). Infants with birth weight at or above the 90th percentile were considered large-for-gestational age (LGA). Macrosomia was defined as birth weight ≥4000 g. Well-controlled was defined as mean blood glucose ≤95 mg/dL. The association ...

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 ...
Case Report A 29 yr old para2 woman with type 2 diabetes was booked and followed up in the combined antenatal diabetic clinic through her third pregnancy. She required metformin and subcutaneous insulin injections to control her blood glucose prior to conception. These were continued in pregnancy with an increase in the frequency of blood glucose monitoring. At 28 weeks of pregnancy, it was noted that blood glucose values recorded in her logbook over the course of 8 weeks consistently showed fasting levels ,5 mmol/l and 1 hr postprandial levels ,7 mmol/l despite HbA1C levels of 72 mmols/mol (8.7%) and ultrasound scan showing fetal macrosomia and significant polyhydramnios. A review of her glucometer identified difference in the values stored in the memory and that recorded in her logbook. This discrepancy was brought to her notice and she divulged falsifying the values. She was delivered by emergency caesarean section for fetal compromise at 32 weeks gestation. ...

Large for gestational age (LGA) is an indication of high prenatal growth rate. LGA is often defined as a weight, length, or head circumference that lies above the 90th percentile for that gestational age. However, it has been suggested that the definition be restricted to infants with birth weights greater than the 97th percentile (2 standard deviations above the mean) as this more accurately describes infants who are at greatest risk for perinatal morbidity and mortality. Macrosomia, which literally means long body, is sometimes confused with LGA. Some experts consider a baby to be big when it weighs more than 8 pounds 13 ounces (4,000 g) at birth, and others say a baby is big if it weighs more than 9 pounds 15 ounces (4,500 g). A baby is also called large for gestational age if its weight is greater than the 90th percentile at birth. LGA and macrosomia cannot be diagnosed until after birth, as it is impossible to accurately estimate the size and weight of a child in the womb. Babies that ...
Blood glucose profile characteristics before and at the conclusion of therapy were comparable for the two groups. Eighty-two percent of the glyburide- and 88% of the insulin-treated subjects were able to achieve targeted levels of glycemia. However, eight glyburide-treated women (4%) failed to achieve the desired level of control early in the third trimester and were transferred to insulin therapy. None of the patients developed severe symptoms of hypoglycemia. However, in the insulin-treated group, a significantly higher rate of subjects had 1-6% of their SMBG results in the hypoglycemic range (, 40 mg/dl).. The glyburide- and insulin-treated groups had similar rates of preeclampsia (6%) and cesarean section (23-24%). Neonatal outcomes did not differ significantly between the two groups. Furthermore, the groups had similar rates of LGA infants (12 and 13%, respectively), macrosomia (7 and 4%), lung complications (8 and 6%), hypoglycemia (9 and 6%), admission to a neonatal intensive care unit (6 ...
The main consequence of class A1 gestational diabetes is excessive fetal size leading to increased risk of difficult labor and delivery. We estimate that approximately one of eight women with class A1 gestational diabetes mellitus delivers an LGA infant attributable to glucose intolerance.
The term grand multiparity is used in reference to women who have previously given birth several times. Some consider a pregnant patient to be a grand multipara if she has already given birth four or more times, and a great grand multipara if she has already given birth nine or more times. These numbers include…. ...
Well, call me a curmudgeon, but I dont believe enough in the research on gestational diabetes or believe in the validity or effectiveness (as far as preventing macrosomia) to believe in encouraging routine post-prandial testing. The only client I can imagine I: think should be monitoring her glucose levels -- would be a woman with overt diabetes -- and then, she would NOT be my client, but would be referred to a specialist! So... I cant give you any advice on which numbers to use. The fact that the numbers vary so widely in recommendation is because the research is so dang lousy. Really disgustingly lousy. And I like to quote -- or paraphrase -- The Guide to Effective Care which complains that the issue of gestational diabetes has been adopted with so little data that it is essentially experimentation on pregnant women and in any other field would be considered unethical! Heres the deal.... research shows that restricting calories and carbohydrates will not make a statistical ...

Untreated GDM leads to spontaneous abortion, fetal anomalies, preeclampsia, fetal demise, macrosomia and hypoglycaemia and hyperbilirubinaemia in the neonate (Holmes et al., 2011). Risk of obesity and type two DM in the offspring are long term consequences of GDM (Dabelea et al., 2000). American Diabetes Association (ADA) for the first time, recommended that all pregnant women must undergone a 75g OGTT at 24- 28th weeks of gestation to prevent maternal and fetal complications associated with GDM (ADA, 2011 ...
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.. ...

Uterus rupture is an important cause of postpartum haemorrhage because of its high morbidity and mortality rate [1]. It is an infrequent complication that usually occurs in a previously scarred uterus (mostly by caesarean section) [1, 2]. Complete uterus rupture of an unscarred uterus is very rare, with an incidence of only 0.006% in developed countries [3]. Risk factors for unscarred uterus rupture are multiparity, use of uterotonica during labour, macrosomia, uterus malformations and others [1, 2 ...
