CONTEXT Similar genetic factors may play role in the pathogenesis of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). However, genetic studies on GDM are relatively scarce as compared with T2DM. OBJECTIVE A recent genome-wide association (GWA) study has proved that three KCNQ1 polymorphisms were significantly associated with the risk of T2DM in various ethnic groups. This study aimed to examine possible genetic effects of these KCNQ1 polymorphisms on the risk of GDM… CONTINUE READING
