Racial, ethnic and nativity inequalities in gestational diabetes mellitus: The role of racial discrimination.

SSM Popul Health 2022 Sep 21;19:101176. Epub 2022 Jul 21.

University of Nebraska Medical Center, 42nd and Emile, Omaha, NE, 68198, USA.

Introduction: Racial/ethnic minority and foreign-born women in the United States are at high risk of experiencing racial discrimination, which is associated with adverse health outcomes. Although racial discrimination is associated with metabolic disturbances such as insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes, more studies should examine its effect on gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM), which is highest among racial/ethnic minority and foreign-born women.

Methods: We used New York City Pregnancy Risk and Assessment Monitoring System survey data (2012-2014) linked with birth certificate items (N = 4084) in bivariate and multivariate analyses to examine racial/ethnic/nativity differences in racial discrimination, and to test if racial discrimination explains racial/ethnic/nativity inequalities in GDM

Changing Meal Sequence Affects Glucose Excursions in Gestational Diabetes Mellitus.

J Diabetes Res 2022 21;2022:7083106. Epub 2022 Jul 21.

Department of Endocrinology, The Affiliated Changzhou No. 2 People's Hospital of Nanjing Medical University, Changzhou 213003, China.
