AIM The current therapeutic strategies to reduce macrosomia rates in gestational diabetes (GDM) have focused on the normalizing of maternal glucose levels. The aim of our study was 1.) to compare maternal glycemic values with the presence of fetal macrosomia at different gestational ages (GA) and with LGA at birth in a cohort of women with glucose intolerance and standard diabetic therapy. METHODS 306 women with GDM and 97 with impaired glucose tolerance underwent ultrasound examinations at… CONTINUE READING
