  • BACKGROUND Gestational weight gain (GWG) is associated with a range of health outcomes, but little is known about the factors that influence it. OBJECTIVE The objective was to test the hypothesis that maternal and fetal genetic variants that are reliably associated with adiposity are associated with GWG. DESIGN We examined the association of a risk allele score by using 4 adiposity-related single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs; rs9939609 in FTO, rs17782313 near MC4R, rs6548238 near TMEM18… CONTINUE READING
