The Fetal Heart in Gestational Diabetes: the long-term effects.

The Fetal Heart in Gestational Diabetes: the long-term effects. BJOG. 2020 Aug 08;: Authors: Hod M Abstract Hyperglycemia is the most common medical complication of pregnancy. It is a broad term that encompasses various forms of glucose dysregulation seen during pregnancy. The International Diabetes Federation estimates that 1 in 6 live births (16.8%) occur to women with some form of hyperglycemia; 16% of these due to overt diabetes in pregnancy (DIP) and the remaining 84% due to gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM). DIP maybe either preexisting diabetes (type 1 or type 2) antedating pregnancy, or overt diabetes first diagnosed during pregnancy. PMID: 32770722 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionsWomen in our study with pre-gestational diabetes were overweight, were older and had long-standing diabetes mellitus. Our patients with type 2 diabetes had a higher BMI, were older, had a shorter duration of diabetes mellitus and had better diabetes control compared to women with type 1 diabetes. Women treated with continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion had a higher rate of miscarriage with more congenital malformations. The initial inadequate diabetes control was significantly improved during pregnancy.

In conclusion, it remains unclear if brain-specific regional and temporal changes occur in the expression of the different APP variants during AD progression. Since APP is also found in blood cells, assessing the changes in APP mRNA expression in peripheral blood cells from AD patients has been considering an alternative. However, again the quantification of APP mRNA in peripheral blood cells has generated controversial results. Brain APP protein has been analyzed in only a few studies, probably as it is difficult to interpret the complex pattern of APP variants and fragments. We previously characterized the soluabl...

Conclusions/interpretationAll women with GDM should be intensively monitored for a decade, after which the risk for type 1 diabetes is minimal. However, the incidence of type 2 diabetes remains linear, and therefore individualised lifelong follow-up is recommended.

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...
