Prevalence of diabetes mellitus and hypertension during pregnancy in eastern China after the implementation of universal two-child policy

AbstractAimsFew studies have assessed the prevalence of diabetes and hypertension among pregnant women in China after the implementation of universal two-child policy. Therefore, the aim of the study was to determine the prevalence of diabetes and hypertension from 2016 to 2018 among pregnant women in Jiangsu, China, after the policy implementation.MethodsWe analysed data from pregnant women who delivered their neonates between 2016 and 2018 in the Northern Jiangsu People ’s Hospital. All pregnant women irrespective of their gestation weeks underwent oral glucose intolerance tests in a fasting state.ResultsA total of 3262 pregnant women were included. The overall prevalence of diabetes and hypertension in pregnant women was 21.8% and 2.4%, respectively. In addition, the prevalence of low birth weight (LBW) and macrosomia for participants with diabetes was significantly higher than those without diabetes (LBW: 4.4. vs. 2.6%,p = 0.017; macrosomia: 10.1 vs. 5.8%,p

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...

ConclusionIn our study, not only did the rates of different risk factors for pre-eclampsia change over the study period, the specific contribution of each risk factor for the occurrence of pre-eclampsia changed as well. Developing a better understanding of these trends might aid in our ability to predict this major complication and to improve maternal and fetal outcomes.

CONCLUSIONS: The prevalence of stillbirth was 13.2 per 1000 births in China in 2015-2016. Nearly one third of all stillbirths may be preventable. Strategies based on regional characteristics should be considered to further reduce the burden of stillbirths in China. PMID: 32770714 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
