Epidemiology of Diabetes in Pregnancy Among First Nations and Non-First Nations Women in Saskatchewan, 1980‒2013. Part 1: Populations, Methodology and Frequencies (1980‒2009); Results From the DIP: ORRIIGENSS Project

ConclusionsThe proportion of pregnancies complicated by DIP increased steadily among FN and non-FN women in Saskatchewan in 1980‒2009, but the incidence of GDM and pre-GDM is 2- to 3-fold higher among FN.RésuméObjectifsÉtant donné les conséquences immédiates et à long terme du diabète pendant la grossesse (DPG) chez la mère et l’enfant, nous avons comparé la fréquence du diabète gestationnel (DG) et du pré-DG entre les femmes des Premières Nations (PN) et les femmes non-PN de la Saskatchewan de 1980 à 2009.MéthodesÀ l’aide des bases de données administratives du ministère de la Santé, nous avons mené une étude de cohorte rétrospective auprès de femmes des PN et de femmes non-PN pour connaître les taux de DG et pré-DG dans le cadre de leur grossesse. Nous avons déterminé le nombre brut de cas de DG et de pré-DG et le nombre de cas après 10 ans ajusté selon l’âge, de même que les taux de DPG liés à l’âge de la mère.RésultatsNous avons obtenu les données anonymisées sur les grossesses de 69 176 femmes des PN et 344 410 femmes non-PN. Le nombre annuel brut de cas de DG était passé de 1,0 % à 6,6 % chez les femmes des PN et de 0,4 % à 3,6 % ch...

Often we don’t really consider gender dynamics in treatment or medication. A lot of medications are only tested on men because of the risk of pregnancy, etc. This means there are whole drugs that have made it to market that may not have ever been tested with women.

ConclusionsIntroduction of the MF protocol, which gave patients an informed choice between insulin and metformin, was associated with similar glycemic control and pregnancy outcomes, but improved patient satisfaction and clinic efficiency.RésuméObjectifsBien qu'on évite généralement d'employer la metformine durant la grossesse, des données probantes corroborent désormais son innocuité et son efficacité dans la prise en charge du diabète sucré gestationnel (DSG).

CONCLUSION: Women using antipsychotics around pregnancy are heterogeneous, with varying patterns of use and associated birth outcomes, reflecting underlying differences in the indications for treatment and/or severity of illness. This diversity should be considered when developing clinical guidelines and designing safety studies. PMID: 31088287 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Hepp Z, Lage MJ, Espaillat R, Gossain VV Abstract OBJECTIVE: To evaluate outcomes associated with adherence to levothyroxine (LT4) in the US adult hypothyroidism population. METHODS: We used data from Truven's MarketScan databases from July 1, 2011 through December 31, 2015. Patients aged 18 or older were diagnosed with hypothyroidism (confirmed at least twice) and prescribed LT4. Patients were excluded if they did not have continuous insurance coverage or if they received a diagnosis of thyroid cancer or pregnancy during the study period. Multivariable analyses on a matched cohort of adherent and non-...

Conclusion: Phentermine–topiramate could be helpful for weight loss and reduction of binge-eating symptoms in patients with obesity or overweight in addition to BED. Controlled studies are warranted. Binge-eating disorder (BED), an eating disorder recognized in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, fifth edition (DSM-5), is characterized by recurrent and distressing episodes of binge eating (eating an unusually large amount of food with a sense of loss of control over eating) without inappropriate compensatory weight-loss behaviors.1 Known as the most common eating disorder, BED is strongly assoc...

The objective of this systematic review and meta-analysis was to examine the association between maternal chronic medical conditions (CMC) and perinatal mental illness. Medline, EMBASE, CINAHL, and PsycINFO were searched to September, 2017. Data were extracted and quality was assessed using standardized instruments. We generated unadjusted and adjusted pooled odds ratios (aPOR) and 95% confidence intervals (CI) using DerSimonian and Laird random effects models. The review included 16 papers representing 12 studies and 1,626,260 women. CMC overall was associated with perinatal mental illness overall (aPOR = 1.43, ...
