Functional genetic variants in the 3'UTR of PTPRD associated with the risk of gestational diabetes mellitus.

Exp Ther Med 2021 Jun 26;21(6):562. Epub 2021 Mar 26.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Qinghai Red-Cross Hospital, Xining, Qinghai 810000, P.R. China.

A previous study revealed that protein tyrosine phosphatase receptor type D (PTPRD) is highly associated with diabetes mellitus, particularly for type 2 diabetes, through a genome-wide association study. However, the influence of the human polymorphism in the 3'-untranslated region (3'-UTR) of PTPRD on gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) has remained to be defined. The present study focused on the functional polymorphism located in the 3'-UTR of PTPRD and whether it is associated with the susceptibility to develop GDM. Read More

Association of maternal body mass index with intellectual disability risk.

Arch Dis Child Fetal Neonatal Ed 2021 Apr 13. Epub 2021 Apr 13.

Department of Clinical Medicine-Department of Clinical Epidemiology, Aarhus Universitet, Aarhus, Midtjylland, Denmark.

Objectives: The study aimed to investigate the association between maternal body mass index (BMI) in early pregnancy and children's intellectual disability (ID) risk in the absence of chromosomal disorders, neurofibromatosis and tuberous sclerosis, taking adverse birth outcomes, maternal hypertension/diabetes and maternal socioeconomic status into consideration.

Implementation of a first-trimester prognostic model to improve screening for gestational diabetes mellitus.

BMC Pregnancy Childbirth 2021 Apr 13;21(1):298. Epub 2021 Apr 13.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, University Medical Centre Utrecht, Utrecht University, Lundlaan 6, Utrecht, 3584 EA, the Netherlands.

Background: Improvement in the accuracy of identifying women who are at risk to develop gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is warranted, since timely diagnosis and treatment improves the outcomes of this common pregnancy disorder. Although prognostic models for GDM are externally validated and outperform current risk factor based selective approaches, there is little known about the impact of such models in day-to-day obstetric care.

Methods: A prognostic model was implemented as a directive clinical prediction rule, classifying women as low- or high-risk for GDM, with subsequent distinctive care pathways including selective midpregnancy testing for GDM in high-risk women in a prospective multicenter birth cohort comprising 1073 pregnant women without pre-existing diabetes and 60 obstetric healthcare professionals included in nine independent midwifery practices and three hospitals in the Netherlands (effectiveness-implementation hybrid type 2 study).

Research progress of metformin in gestational diabetes mellitus: a narrative review.

Ann Palliat Med 2021 Mar;10(3):3423-3437

Department of Endocrinology, Shengjing Hospital of China Medical University, Shenyang, China; Clinical Skills Practice Teaching Center, Shengjing Hospital of China Medical University, Shenyang, China.

Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) refers to abnormal glucose metabolism that occurs during pregnancy, where blood glucose does not reach the level of overt diabetes during pregnancy. Poor blood glucose control in GDM patients can pose a serious threat to pregnant women and their fetuses by giving rise to adverse pregnancy outcomes for mothers and infants. In 2015, the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) recommended that insulin and metformin be used as the first-line medications for patients with GDM who did not reach the ideal blood glucose level following lifestyle interventions.

Electronic address:

Background: Small-for-gestational age (SGA) infants are at significantly increased risk of perinatal complications, but the risk of recurrent SGA is not well known, particularly as there are many demographic and obstetric factors that interact and modify this risk. We investigated the relationship between previous SGA births and the risk of recurrence at term in a large Australian cohort.

Fetal Heart Rate Decelerations in Women with Sleep-Disordered Breathing.

Reprod Sci 2021 Apr 13. Epub 2021 Apr 13.

Division of Maternal Fetal Medicine, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, USA.

Emerging literature has shown that women with sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) have increased risk for gestational hypertension/preeclampsia and gestational diabetes. Case reports suggest an association between maternal apnea and fetal heart rate deceleration but data are lacking on how maternal sleep impacts fetal health. Since decelerations may be associated with adverse outcomes, we sought to determine whether fetal heart rate decelerations were associated with SDB. Read More

Silencing of DsbA-L gene impairs the PPARγ agonist function of improving insulin resistance in a high-glucose cell model.

J Zhejiang Univ Sci B 2020 Dec.;21(12):990-998

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Tongji Hospital, Tongji Medical College, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Wuhan 430030, China.

Disulfide-bond A oxidoreductase-like protein (DsbA-L) is a molecular chaperone involved in the multimerization of adiponectin. Recent studies have found that DsbA-L is related to metabolic diseases including gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM), and can be regulated by peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor γ (PPARγ) agonists; the specific mechanism, however, is uncertain. Furthermore, the relationship between DsbA-L and the novel adipokine chemerin is also unclear. Read More

Specific amino acids but not total protein attenuate postpartum weight gain among Hispanic women from Southern California.

Food Sci Nutr 2021 Apr 13;9(4):1842-1850. Epub 2021 Feb 13.

Department of Pediatrics The Saban Research Institute Children's Hospital Los Angeles University of Southern California Los Angeles CA USA.

There is a high prevalence of obesity and type 2 diabetes in the United States, particularly among Hispanic women, which may be partly explained by failure to lose gestational weight during the postpartum period. Previous work indicates that protein and amino acids may protect against weight gain; therefore, this study examined the impact of dietary protein and amino acid intake on changes in postpartum weight and the percent of women meeting the Estimated Average Requirement (EAR) for these dietary variables among Hispanic women from the Southern California Mother's Milk Study ( = 99). Multivariable linear regression analysis was used to examine the associations between protein and amino acid intake with change in weight after adjusting for maternal age, height, and energy intake.

WHO Collaborating Centre for Global Women's Health, Institute of Metabolism and Systems Research, University of Birmingham, UK. Electronic address:

The coronavirus disease-19 (COVID-19) pandemic has directly and indirectly impacted pregnant women with co-morbidities or antenatal medical complications, through vulnerability to the severe effects of COVID-19 and service reconfiguration. Women with diabetes or hypertension in pregnancy are at higher risk of admission to intensive care, need for invasive ventilation and death from COVID-19. Suggested service modifications specific to maternal medicine services include home measurement of blood glucose or blood pressure, the use of risk calculators, adaptations to screening criteria for gestational diabetes and monitoring of obstetric cholestasis.
