OBJECTIVE To investigate the growth of children from pregnancies with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) and its association with antenatal maternal, fetal, and recent anthropometric parameters of mother and father. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS In 324 pregnancies of Caucasian women with GDM, BMI before pregnancy, maternal glycemic values, and measurements(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the contribution of maternal glucose and lipids to intrauterine metabolic environment and fetal growth in pregnancies with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM). RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS In 150 pregnancies, serum triglycerides (TGs), cholesterol, free fatty acids (FFAs), glycerol, insulin, and glucose were determined in maternal(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine maternal parameters with the strongest influence on fetal growth in different periods of pregnancies complicated by an abnormal glucose tolerance test (GTT). RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS Retrospective study of 368 women with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM; > or = 2 abnormal GTT values, n = 280) and impaired glucose tolerance(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to investigate the rate of hypoglycemia in large-for-gestational-age infants of nondiabetic mothers in relation to maternal or neonatal risk factors. STUDY DESIGN Hospital charts of all term large-for-gestational-age infants born between 1994 and 1998 (n = 1136) were analyzed for the rate of neonatal hypoglycemia(More)
B ecause of an exponential increase in childhood and adolescent obesity, its prevention has become a major health care goal (1). There is increasing evidence (2– 4) that breast-feeding has a protective effect against obesity in later life. However, most studies investigating the effect of breast-feeding have not looked exclusively at infants of diabetic(More)
OBJECTIVE Up to 30% of women with recent gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) remain glucose intolerant after delivery. However, the rate of postpartum oral glucose tolerance tests (ppOGTTs) is low. Our aim in this study was to develop a model for risk assessment to target women with high risk for postpartum diabetes. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS In 605(More)
OBJECTIVE Serial measurements of the fetal abdominal circumference have been used to guide metabolic management of pregnancies complicated by gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM). A reduction in the number of repeat ultrasound examinations would save resources. Our purpose was to determine the number of serial abdominal circumference measurements per patient(More)
