OBJECTIVE We investigated the association between abnormal maternal glucose levels according to International Association of Diabetes and Pregnancy Study Groups (IADPSG) criteria and perinatal complications. MATERIALS AND METHODS Retrospective observational study of data of 492 women in singleton pregnancy and gestational diabetes (GDM) diagnosed(More)
UNLABELLED Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is associated with increased maternal insulin resistance. Maternal hyperglycemia is a well known risk factor for fetal overgrowth. However, despite improved glycemia control, macrosomia complicates a significant proportion of diabetic pregnancies, resulting in increased perinatal risk. The aim of our(More)
AIMS The aim was to evaluate the outcome of pregnancies with type 1 diabetes (T1DM) treated from the first trimester with continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII) or multiple daily injections (MDI). METHODS In a retrospective, observational study, we matched 64 CSII patients for age, age at onset and duration of diabetes and HbA1c in the first(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of the study was to evaluate the relation between maternal placental Doppler velocimetry, levels of the maternal glucose, and clinical signs of vasculopathy in pregnancy complicated by pregestational diabetes mellitus. METHODS AND RESULTS A retrospective study of 155 pregestational diabetic women between the 22nd and 40th weeks of(More)
BACKGROUND Causes of fetal hypoxia in diabetic pregnancy are still unknown. Investigation of placental vascular network seems of great importance in this research area. Abnormalities in the structure of capillaries in the vasculo-epithelial membranes and role of perivascular space may be an essential factor in explanation for fetal hypoxia in diabetic(More)
UNLABELLED To determine whether the symptoms of metabolic syndrome (MS), if accompanied by oxidative stress (OS), in type 1 diabetes mellitus (DM) patients could affect the course of pregnancy and the perinatal outcome. Oxidized low density lipoproteins (ox-LDL) and total lipid peroxides (TLP) were studied in 98 pregnant women with type 1 DM in the I(st)(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of the study was to evaluate the risk of occurrence of metabolic syndrome (MS) in females who suffered from gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM). PATIENTS AND METHODS 495 letters were sent to patients with a history of GDM treated in the Department between 1993-2002. One hundred and fifty-three (30.9%) patients who responded positively(More)
Pregestational diabetes with vasculopathy in pregnant women is still associated with increased risk for severe maternal and foetal complications and their pathomechanism remains unclear. We investigate endothelial function in diabetic pregnant women with and without vascular disease, measured as changes in concentrations of soluble E-selectin and VCAM-1(More)
Many studies have shown that cigarette smoking exerts multiple effects on the thyroid gland. Smoking seems to induce changes in thyroid function tests, like decrease in TSH and increase in thyroid hormones. However, these alterations are usually mild. In addition, tobacco smoking may also play a role in thyroid autoimmunity. Many studies have confirmed a(More)
The aim of the study was to estimate of efficiency of endovaginal ultrasonography in diagnosis of ovarian endometriosis. The study was performed in 59 women with ovarian tumors. Ultrasound examinations were performed with Aloka 2000 using 5.0 MHz transducers. The endovaginal ultrasonography is very useful in diagnosis of ovarian endometriosis, showing(More)
