Pregnant women were considered to have Gestational diabetes when fasting plasma glucose [greater than or equal to] 7.0 mmol/l or glycated haemoglobin (HbA1c) level [greater than or equal to] 6.5%.12 Women with gestational hypertension included in this study based on two readings of systolic BP [greater than or equal to] 140 mm Hg and diastolic BP [greater than or equal to] 90 mm Hg, 4-6 hours apart.13 Labour was considered preterm when delivery occurred before completing 37 weeks of gestation.14
Thangaratinam said in a university news release that women who are at risk of gestational diabetes should be encouraged to adopt a healthier diet early in pregnancy.
For qualitative variables like gestational diabetes mellitus, frequency and percentage were calculated.
The result shows that the incidence of gestational diabetes was higher in Indian women than in Swedish women.
"Our findings add to the motivation to find ways to help women at high risk for gestational diabetes who are or plan to get pregnant to take steps to reduce their risk."
In 2016, the crude national prevalences of preexisting and gestational diabetes were 0.9% and 6.0%, respectively (Table 1); prevalence varied by all characteristics examined (p<0.05).
Women who went on to develop gestational diabetes had higher HbA1c levels (an average of 5.3 percent), compared to those without gestational diabetes (an average HbA1c level of 5.1 percent).
Quantification of the type 2 diabetes risk in women with gestational diabetes: a systematic review and meta-analysis of 95,750 women.
The researchers compared HbA1c test results from 107 women who later developed gestational diabetes to test results from 214 women who did not develop the condition.
The rate was barely different, at 1.5%, for those whose mothers developed gestational diabetes after 26 weeks.
Most women diagnosed with gestational diabetes don't have any symptoms.
