Value of HbA1c in Obese Women with Gestational Diabetes

Conclusion: A single HbA1c in women with GDM is not associated with a composite perinatal adverse outcome, but a HbA1c that increases or remains stable between 14 to 20 and 24 to 28 weeks is associated with an increase in preterm delivery.

Poor nutrition contributes to epigenetic dysregulation, which can alter gene expression and effect phenotypic change. A healthy diet during pregnancy, high in grains and vegetables, may help to reduce the risk of obesity, GDM, ...

This study retrospectively analyzed the clinical data of 358 women who were admitted to the obstetrics department of our hospital from January 2018 to July 2019. And the relationship between prepregnancy BMI, BMI increase during pregnancy and delivery methods, postpartum hemorrhage, neonatal weight, premature delivery, neonatal asphyxia, gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM), and hypertension during pregnancy (HDP) was observed and compared. The results show that both high BMI before pregnancy and excessive weight gain during pregnancy can lead to the incidence of abnormal birth weight and adverse birth outcome increase. The...
