ConclusionsWhen evaluating RCTs which included criteria for pharmacologic GDM therapy dose adjustment, the most common criterion for diagnosis was the two‐step test, and the most common used therapies were insulin and metformin. Regarding glucose monitoring, the most common frequency was four times per day, fasting and two hours after each main meal, using as target glucose values 95 and 120 mg/dL, respectively. Importantly, we found six different criteria for pharmacologic GDM therapy dose adjustment, with the majority using very tight criteria of either one or two values per week higher than the target values, of ...

Sunil Kumar, Surendra Sharma, Riddhi ThakerIndian Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine 2017 21(1):9-17 Preterm birth (PTB) is a significant public health concern and a leading cause of infant mortality and morbidity worldwide and often contributes to various health complications later in life. More than 60% of PTBs occur in Africa and south Asia. This overview discusses the available information on occupational, environmental, and lifestyle factors and their contribution to PTB and proposes new etiological explanations that underlie this devastating pregnancy complication. Several factors such as emotion...

Pregnant women with type 1 diabetes (T1DM) are at increased risk of developing preeclampsia (PE). Plasminogen is aberrantly filtrated from plasma into tubular fluid in PE patients and activated to plasmin. Plasmin activates the epithelial sodium channel (ENaC) in the collecting ducts potentially causing impaired sodium excretion, suppression of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system and hypertension in PE.

Publication date: Available online 12 December 2017 Source:The Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology Author(s): Simone De Leo, Elizabeth N Pearce Understanding of changes in thyroid function and the consequences of thyroid disease during pregnancy has rapidly grown in the past two decades, and revised American Thyroid Association guidelines on this topic were published in 2017. This Review explores the association between thyroid autoimmunity and complications during and after pregnancy. Thyroid autoimmunity refers to the presence of antibodies to thyroperoxidase or thyroglobulin, or thyroid-stimulating hormone receptor ant...

Researchers at the  Eli and Edythe Broad Center of Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research at UCLA have discovered how high glucose levels — whether caused by diabetes or other factors — keep heart cells from maturing normally. Their findings help explain why babies born to women with diabetes are more likely to develop congenital heart disease.The study, which was led by Atsushi “Austin” Nakano, a UCLA associate professor of molecular, cell, and developmental biology and member of the Broad Stem Cell Research Center, was published today in the journal eLife.When developing heart cell...

The heart switches its energy substrate from glucose to fatty acids at birth, and maternal hyperglycemia is associated with congenital heart disease. However, little is known about how blood glucose impacts heart formation. Using a chemically defined human pluripotent stem-cell-derived cardiomyocyte differentiation system, we found that high glucose inhibits the maturation of cardiomyocytes at genetic, structural, metabolic, electrophysiological, and biomechanical levels by promoting nucleotide biosynthesis through the pentose phosphate pathway. Blood glucose level in embryos is stable in utero during normal pregnancy, but...

(Natural News) Mothers who develop diabetes during their pregnancy — a condition that is known as gestational diabetes (GDM) — have an increased likelihood of having a child who will display attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) symptoms as early as six to 18 months of age. This is the warning researchers from the A*STAR Singapore...
