Abstract

Prevalence of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) and obesity continue to increase. To ascertain if diet and exercise is a successful intervention for women with GDM and if a subset of these women have comparable outcomes to those with normal glucose tolerance (NGT). A retrospective cohort study. Five antenatal centers along the Irish Atlantic seaboard. 567 women diagnosed with GDM and 2499 women with NGT during pregnancy. Diet and exercise therapy on diagnosis of GDM. Multiple maternal and neonatal outcomes were examined. Infants of women with GDM were more likely to be hypoglycemic (OR 7.25 95%CI 2.94-17.9) at birth. They were more likely to be admitted to NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) (OR 2.16 95%CI 1.60-2.91). Macrosomia and large for gestational age (LGA) rates were lower in the GDM group (OR 0.48 95% 0.37-0.64 and OR 0.61 95% CI 0.46-0.82 respectively). There was no increase in small for gestational age (SGA) among offspring of women with GDM (OR 0.81 95%CI 0.49-1.34). Women with diet treated GDM and BMI<25kg/m(2) had similar outcomes to those with NGT of the same BMI group. Obesity increased risk for poor pregnancy outcomes regardless of diabetes status. MNT and exercise for women with GDM may be successful in lowering rates of LGA and macrosomia without increasing SGA rates. Women with GDM and a BMI <25kg/m(2) had outcomes similar to those with NGT suggesting that these women could potentially be treated in a less resource intensive setting.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 2. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 19 April 2016.
All research outputs
#7,172,214
of 12,427,106 outputs
Outputs from The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism
#7,809
of 10,661 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#126,882
of 275,146 outputs
Outputs of similar age from The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism
#73
of 119 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,427,106 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 40th percentile – i.e., 40% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 10,661 research outputs from this source. They typically receive more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 8.5. This one is in the 25th percentile – i.e., 25% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 275,146 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 50% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 119 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 33rd percentile – i.e., 33% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
