Ethnicity and Immigration Status as Risk Factors for Gestational Diabetes Mellitus, Anemia and Pregnancy Outcomes Among Food Insecure Women Attending the Montreal Diet Dispensary Program

ConclusionsAs disparities in maternal and infant outcomes were present, nutritional intervention(s) need to be targeted toward prevention of adverse pregnancy outcomes, prioritization of higher-risk groups and adaptation of the program to a multiethnic low-income population.RésuméObjectifLa présente étude a pour objectif principal de caractériser le taux d'issues de grossesse indésirables dans un groupe multiculturel composé de femmes à faible revenu.MéthodesLes données extraites entre juin 2013 et décembre 2015 provenaient de la base de données du Dispensaire diététique de Montréal. Le risque a été évalué au moyen d'un modèle de régression logistique ajusté sur les covariables.RésultatsParmi les 1387 femmes enceintes, la prévalence du diabète sucré gestationnel (DSG) était de 17,2 % (intervalle de confiance [IC] à 95 %, de 15,1 % à 19,3 %), l'anémie maternelle, de 44,9 % (IC à 95 %, de 41,9 % à 47,9 %) et l'hypertension maternelle, de 3,8 % (IC à 95 %, de 2,8 % à 4,8 %). La prévalence d'enfants de faible poids pour l’âge gestationnel (FPAG) était de 5,5 % (IC à 95 %, de 4,3 % à 6,7 %), les naissances prématurées, de 4,7 % (IC à 95 %, de 3,6 % à 5,9 %), le faible poids &agrav...

DiscussionThis trial, embedded in the national implementation of the eRegistry in Palestine, allows the assessment of process and health outcomes in a large-scale pragmatic setting. Findings will inform the use of interactive checklists and clinical decision support driven by point-of-care data entry into an eRegistry as a health systems-strengthening approach.Trial registrationISRCTN trial registration number,ISRCTN18008445.

Conclusions: Women in the second pregnancy do not appear to predict an increased risk for developing GDM than women in the first pregnancy. High-risk groups of GDM included women in their late pregnancy, aged 36–45 years old, and with hypertension. The findings will contribute to an improved understanding of social and behavioral determinants of GDM in Chinese population and contribute to the development of health-prevention promotion interventions to address GDM.

Authors: Kontomanolis EN, Panagoutsos S, Pasadakis P, Koukouli Z, Liberis A Abstract This case report highlights on a child-bearer with chronic renal failure and diabetes mellitus type-II. Chronic renal failure (CRF) with diabetes mellitus (DM) type I in gestation is a rare case of a high-risk pregnancy. What is of significance though in this gestation, is that conception was achieved with the patient treated by a dialysis program. Furthermore, neither hypertension nor intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) were detected and the patient was normotensive throughout gestation with no clinical signs of anemia. Strict ...

Conclusions: There are significant differences in obstetric and psychosocial risk profiles and maternal and neonatal outcomes between Australian-born and non-Australian born women. In particular there appears to be an association between an EPDS of ≥13 and developing GDM, which warrants further investigation.
