Chronic maternal hypoglycemia leads to fetal growth restriction, but the effects on placental metabolism and its contribution to reduced fetal growth have not been determined. To study these factors, experiments were conducted in seven normal control (C) and six chronically insulin-infused hypoglycemic (H) pregnant sheep over the second half of gestation to measure effects of maternal and fetal hypoglycemia [maternal: 2.0 +/- 0.2 (H) vs. 3.6 +/- 0.1 mM (C); fetal: 0.7 +/- 0.1 (H) vs. 1.1 +/- 0… CONTINUE READING
