Assessing and treating women for overt diabetes in pregnancy (ODIP) at the first antenatal clinic booking is now recommended in international guidelines. As a consequence, women with milder hyperglycaemia are being diagnosed and treated for early GDM, but randomised controlled trial (RCTs) assessing th...

CONCLUSION: To assist Chinese women with Gestational diabetes to better self-manage their condition, there is a need for clinicians to: (1) provide more effective diabetes education to ensure clear understanding of self-management principles; (2) actively elicit and respond to women's confusion and concerns; (3) provide women with adequate practical support; and (4) develop greater cultural awareness.

Gestational diabetes mellitus is one of the most common complications of pregnancy. Women with Gestational diabetes are at increased risk of serious health outcomes, such as pre-eclampsia, obstructed labor, and the development of Type 2 diabetes later in life. Chinese migrants, the third largest cultural group in Australia, are more likely to develop Gestational diabetes than Australian-born women. However, to date, Gestational diabetes self-management has not been investigated in this population.

BackgroundThe adoption of the International Association of Diabetes Study Groups (IADPSG) criteria for gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) in Australia has been controversial. Obesity in pregnancy is also a growing concern. AimsTo assess the impact of IADPSG criteria on the incidence of GDM and pregnancy outcomes, and to compare this to the effect of obesity, particularly among women who would not have GDM by the Australasian Diabetes in Pregnancy Society 1998 criteria (ADIPS1998). Material and MethodsA retrospective observational cohort study linking results of 75 g glucose tolerance tests with demographic and pregna...

Abstract AIMS: To evaluate the association of fetal fraction on cell-free DNA (cfDNA) testing with first trimester markers for pre-eclampsia and to investigate a possible association of low fetal fraction with increased risk for pre-eclampsia (PE) and fetal growth restriction (FGR). METHODS: This was a retrospective cohort study including all women with singleton pregnancies who had risk calculation for PE and FGR between 11+0 and 13+6 weeks' gestation and also decided to have cfDNA as a primary or secondary screening test for chromosomal abnormalities at any gestational age in two Fetal Medicine clinics in S...

AimsTo evaluate the association of fetal fraction on cell‐free DNA (cfDNA) testing with first trimester markers for pre‐eclampsia and to investigate a possible association of low fetal fraction with increased risk for pre‐eclampsia (PE) and fetal growth restriction (FGR).
