Type 2 diabetes and pre-diabetes mellitus: a systematic review and meta-analysis of prevalence studies in women of childbearing age in the Middle East and North Africa, 2000 –2018

ConclusionsT2DM and pre-DM are common in women of childbearing age in MENA countries. The high DM burden in this vital population group could lead to adverse pregnancy outcomes and acceleration of the intergenerational risk of DM. Our review presented data and highlighted gaps in the evidence of the DM burden in women of childbearing age, to inform policy-makers and researchers.Systematic review registrationPROSPERO CRD42017069231

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To estimate whether women with diabetes are at risk for 60-day postpartum readmissions and associated complications. METHODS: The Nationwide Readmissions Database from 2010 to 2014 was analyzed to determine risk for 60-day postpartum readmissions among women with type 1 diabetes mellitus (DM), type 2 DM, gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM), and unspecified DM compared with women with no diabetes. Secondary outcomes included evaluating risk for overall severe maternal morbidity during readmissions, as well as wound complications, acute diabetic complications such as diabetic ketoacidosis, v...

This report focuses on the clinical features of these recipients with succ essful delivery of newborns at Tokyo Women’s Medical University approximately 40–50 years ago. Three of the recipients [type 2 diabetes,n  =  2 (cases 1 and 3); type 1 diabetes,n  =  1 (case 4)] were treated before, during and after pregnancy, whereas one patient with type 2 diabetes (case 2) was only treated during pregnancy. Even though three recipients had a past history of stillbirth due to insufficient control of diabetes, all four recipients were directed to try to main tain normoglycemia before and...

ConclusionsSeveral important ethnicity-specific differences in clinical and behavioural characteristics of women with GDM were identified. These differences need to be considered when offering interventions for reducing risk of adverse perinatal outcomes and subsequent type 2 diabetes.RésuméObjectifsLes issues à court terme et à long terme des femmes ayant eu un diabète sucré gestationnel (DSG) varient selon l’ethnicité. Comprendre les différences dans les facteurs de risques initiaux du diabète est important pour éclairer le choix quant aux interv...

ConclusionsThese results indicate that better dissemination strategies for GDM educational material are needed for health-care providers and patients, and may require additional consideration of family involvement during GDM education sessions.RésuméObjectifsLe diabète sucré gestationnel (DSG) augmente le risque de complications de la grossesse. Les femmes immigrantes sud-asiatiques présentent le taux de DSG le plus élevé au Canada et, de ce fait, elles sont aussi exposées tout au long de leur vie au risque le plus élevé d’être atteintes du d...

In conclusion, response to metformin in women with gestational diabetes mellitus is significantly different from that in women with T2DM, which is likely related to the differences in disease severity. PMID: 31742716 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

We report a case of a 36-year-old woman with type 2 diabetes mellitus and a one-year of primary infertility. Following oral ovulation induction cycles and IUI, diagnosis of heterotopic cervical pregnancy was made by ultrasonography at 7.4 weeks of gestation. Laser ablation of the cervical pregnancy was performed achieving adequate homeostasis at the implantation site and preserving the intrauterine pregnancy. A healthy infant was delivered at 36 0/7 wks by cesarean-section.Laser ablation is a minimally invasive procedure that appears to lead to successful outcomes in treatment of heterotopic cervical pregnancy.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewTo provide an updated synopsis of the research and clinical practice findings on pregnancy and gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) in American Indian and Alaska Native (AIAN) adolescents and to describe the newly developed “Stopping GDM,” an early intervention, culturally tailored risk reduction program for AIAN girls and their mothers.Recent FindingsFive research articles met our inclusion criteria. Three retrospective quantitative studies published in the past 10  years corroborated a 1.5 to 2 times higher prevalence for GDM for all age groups in the AIAN population as compared t...
