A Multicenter, Randomized Trial of Treatment for Mild Gestational Diabetes

Samples were analyzed at a central laboratory, and results were forwarded to the data coordinating center. Women were assigned to receive either formal nutritional counseling and diet therapy, 12 along with insulin if achhois treatment group or usual prenatal care control group.

We reviewed the literature to determine the frequency of each component of the composite outcome among women with dtudy diabetes mellitus who were not treated for the condition and among those who were treated. Predictive ability of a predischarge hour-specific serum bilirubin for subsequent significant hyperbilirubinemia in healthy term and near-term newborns. Women with a fasting glucose level of 95 mg per deciliter or more on the diagnostic oral glucose-tolerance test were excluded from the study, and their condition was made achoie to their health care providers.

Nonstress testing, biophysical profile testing, and ultrasonography to achoid fetal growth were not performed routinely in the treatment group but were reserved for standard obstetrical indications. Table 1 Characteristics of the Study Population. Shoulder dystocia was defined clinically, and the providers were required to document the maneuvers that were specifically used to release the fetal shoulders.

Duration of gestation randomization — wk. After an overnight fast, eligible women completed a blinded 3-hour g oral glucose-tolerance test. Treatment of gestational diabetes mellitus, as compared with usual care, was also associated with reduced rates of preeclampsia and gestational hypertension combined rates for the two conditions, 8. Our composite primary outcome included perinatal mortality stillbirth shudy neonatal death and complications that have been linked to maternal carbohydrate intolerance: Discrete sequential boundaries for clinical trials.


In addition, we used a g diagnostic oral glucose-tolerance test, whereas a g oral glucose-tolerance test was used in the ACHOIS trial. The sgudy of gestational diabetes mellitus, or the knowledge that it is present, has been reported to be associated with an increase in several stydy maternal outcomes. The primary outcome was a composite of stillbirth or perinatal death and neonatal complications, including hyperbilirubinemia, hypoglycemia, hyperinsulinemia, and birth trauma.

Women who were receiving treatment performed daily self-monitoring of their blood glucose fasting and 2-hour postprandial measurements with the use of a portable memory-based reflectance meter.

Small for gestational age — no. Screening for gestational diabetes: The records of all enrolled women and their infants srudy reviewed at the time of their discharge from the hospital, and information regarding antepartum, intrapartum, and post-delivery complications was recorded. We randomly assigned women between 24 and studj weeks’ gestation who had gestational diabetes to receive dietary advice, blood glucose monitoring, and insulin therapy as needed the intervention group or routine care.

Effect of treatment of gestational diabetes mellitus on pregnancy outcomes.

The individual rates of neonatal hypoglycemia, hyperbilirubinemia, birth trauma, and elevated cord-blood C-peptide level did not differ significantly between the two groups. The overall rate of preeclampsia in our study was substantially lower than that in the ACHOIS study, which is probably explained by our use of more stringent diagnostic criteria.

Please review our privacy policy. Primary outcomes included serious perinatal complications defined as death, shoulder dystocia, bone fracture, and nerve palsyadmission to the neonatal nursery, jaundice requiring phototherapy, induction of labor, cesarean birth, and maternal anxiety, depression, and health status. Increased birth weight and neonatal fat mass may have long-term health implications for the offspring of mothers with gestational diabetes mellitus, including an increased risk of impaired glucose tolerance and childhood obesity.

A randomised controlled pilot study of management of impaired gestational glucose tolerance. However, all the women who were enrolled in the study were instructed regarding the daily assessment of fetal activity. All the women who pa rticipated in the study provided written informed consent.

Women in the intervention group had a higher rate of induction of labor than the women in the routine-care group 39 percent vs. The rate of serious perinatal complications was significantly lower among the infants of the women in the intervention group than among the infants of the women in the routine-care group 1 percent vs. Insulin resistance, a characteristic achoiis gestational diabetes mellitus, has been associated with the development of preeclampsia.

Respiratory distress syndrome — no. Neonatal morbidities in gestational diabetes mellitus. J Clin Endocrinol Metab. At three months post partum, data on the women’s mood and quality of life, available for women, revealed lower rates of depression and higher scores, consistent with improved health status, in the intervention group. Women who were in the 24th to 31st week of gestation and who met the criteria for mild gestational diabetes mellitus i.

Support Center Support Center. The extent to which a reduction in fetal size and in the frequency of large-for-gestational-age infants as a result of treatment may have contributed to the lower rate of cesarean deliveries is unknown. If, during a prenatal visit, there was a clinical suspicion of hyperglycemia in a patient who was in the control group, the blood glucose level could be measured at the discretion of the provider.

Open in a separate window. However, more infants of women in the intervention group were admitted to the neonatal nursery 71 percent vs.
