A growing body of research highlights the important role of bone in glucose metabolism.
To understand the associations between exposure to gestational diabetes and the risk for maternal glucose metabolism and childhood adiposity, researchers followed a cohort of mothers and children for a median of 11.4 years.
These findings suggest an increased risk for postpartum depressive symptoms in mothers with gestational diabetes, independent of depressive symptomatology during pregnancy.
Untreated gestational diabetes is associated with development of subsequent glucose metabolism disorders in mothers, but is not significantly associated with the composite outcome of childhood overweight/obesity in long-term follow-up of offspring.
First-trimester HbA1c significantly improves GDM prediction compared with conventional risk factors.
Investigators sought to compare cardiovascular risk and disease prevalence in the Hispanic and Latina population in the United States with and without a history of gestational diabetes.
Modifiable pregnancy and postpartum factors associated with at least 75% of weight loss in postpartum women with gestational diabetes have been examined.
Uniform application of gestational diabetes diagnostic thresholds may not be appropriate in populations across the world.
Fetal genetic score for birth weight affects fetal growth at various maternal fasting plasma glucose levels.
This study demonstrated the importance of early screening and diagnosis of type 2 diabetes in mothers and their offspring.
Investigators developed a community-based pre-pregnancy care program to improve pregnancy outcomes.
A tailored electronic health record letter may improve gestational weight gain and reduce postpartum weight retention.
The researchers found that, compared with women without gestational diabetes or subsequent diabetes, women with a history of gestational diabetes had significantly higher estimated glomerular filtration rate.
Findings do not support noninferiority of glyburide for prevention of perinatal complications of gestational diabetes.
Results showed there was a significant crude risk linked to continuing vs discontinuing certain antipsychotics and developing gestational diabetes; for quetiapine the risk was 7.1% vs 4.1% (adjusted relative risk [ARR] 1.28), respectively; among olanzapine users it was 12% vs 4.7% (ARR 1.61), respectively.
In this randomized controlled trial, glyburide was not noninferior in terms of the composite rate of macrosomia, neonatal hypoglycemia, and hyperbilirubinemia compared with subcutaneous insulin.
Researchers assessed the associations of pre-pregnancy fitness, moderate-to-vigorous-intensity physical activity, and time spent watching television on subsequent development of gestational diabetes.
Parents and healthcare workers should carefully consider the risk for obesity in infants born to women with diabetes, especially infants born large for gestational age, and should initiate preventive measures where possible.
High-quality studies are needed to determine whether tight intrapartum glycemic control is superior to more relaxed glycemic targets intrapartum for women with diabetes in pregnancy.
Ten randomized controlled trials were examined to determine the efficacy and safety of glyburide vs insulin treatment for gestational diabetes.
One biomarker measurement during pregnancy can identify glucose intolerance with high sensitivity and specificity.
Gestational diabetes had a 23.3% incidence rate in the combination inositol group compared with 18.3% in the control group.
No difference in incidence of gestational diabetes was noted between those who took inositol supplements vs those who did not.
For patients with gestational diabetes, glyburide and metformin are comparable in terms of glucose control and safety.
Women who were pregnant and slept for less than 6 hours per night or had poor sleep quality had a greater risk of developing gestational diabetes.
