Publication date: Available online 13 November 2019Source: Clinica Chimica ActaAuthor(s): Xin Zeng, Yuan-jie Xie, Ya-ting Liu, Shuang-lian Long, Zhong-cheng MoAbstractPolycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a complex and heterogeneous endocrine disease characterized by clinical or laboratorial hyperandrogenism, oligo-anovulation and metabolic abnormalities, including insulin resistance, excessive weight or obesity, type II diabetes, dyslipidemia and an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. The most significant clinical manifestation of PCOS is hyperandrogenism. Excess androgen profoundly affects granulosa cell function and...

AbstractAdverse pregnancy outcomes increase infants ’ risk for mortality and future health problems. Neighborhood physical disorder may contribute to adverse pregnancy outcomes by increasing maternal chronic stress. Google Street View technology presents a novel method for assessing neighborhood physical disorder but has not been previously examine d in the context of birth outcomes. In this cross-sectional study, trained raters used Google’s Street View imagery to virtually audit a randomly sampled block within each Chicago census tract (n = 809) for nine indicators of physical disorder. We used an item-respon...

AbstractThere are few case reports in which circulating levels of soluble fms-like tyrosine kinase 1 (sFlt-1), placental growth factor (PlGF), and soluble endoglin (sEng) were measured before the onset of super-imposed preeclampsia in women with hemodialysis. A 40-year-old Japanese nulliparous women with hemodialysis due to diabetic nephropathy became pregnant by frozen embryo transfer. Intensive hemodialysis was started at 5  weeks of gestation. Her blood pressure (BP) in the first trimester was around 130/80 mmHg. At 20+3 weeks, she was admitted for close monitoring; her BP was 137/75  mmHg. Her BP increas...

We aimed to examine the association between maternal adiposity and glucose metabolism in adult offspring without diabetes, simultaneous taking offspring own adiposity into account.

Conclusions/interpretationExposure to maternal GDM was nominally associated with a metabolite pattern characterised by elevated serum phospholipids in late childhood and adolescence at α = 0.05. This metabolite pattern was associated with greater adiposity and metabolic risk among female offspring throughout the late childhood-to-adolescence transition. Future studies are warranted to confirm our findings.

ConclusionsWe concluded that Japanese women did not exhibit obvious differences in gut microbiota during pregnancy, except for TM7, and that the diversity of gut microbiota may affect maternal metabolism. As this study had limited statistical power, further large ‐scale studies are needed.

We examined the risk of any perinatal mental illness associated with pre-pregnancy diabetes and identified how diabetes duration, complexity, and intensity of care affect this risk. We performed a population-based study of 15 to 49-year-old women with (n=14,186) and without (n=843,818) pre-pregnancy diabetes who had a singleton livebirth (Ontario, Canada, 2005-2015) and no recent mental illness. Modified Poisson regression estimated perinatal mental illness risk between conception and 1 year postpartum in women with vs. without diabetes and in diabetes groups, defined by a latent class analysis of diabetes duration, comple...

AbstractIntroductionPregnancy ‐related medical complications are associated with a 2‐ to 5‐fold increased risk of preterm birth (PTB), but the nature of this etiologic relationship in context with maternal factors remains poorly understood. Previous studies have generally treated maternal age as a confounder but overlooked its potential as an effect modifier, whereby the magnitude of the effect of complications on PTB could differ significantly across age groups. We investigated whether advanced maternal age (≥35 years) modified the association between pregnancy complications and PTB, and compared population attri...

(Natural News) Gestational diabetes refers to the condition wherein a pregnant woman’s body cannot produce or respond to insulin, resulting in a spike in blood sugar levels. Without proper care, it may have detrimental effects not only on the mother but also the baby. What is the cause of gestational diabetes? According to the Centers...
