Continuous glucose monitoring results in lower HbA1c in Malaysian women with insulin-treated gestational diabetes: a randomized controlled trial To determine if therapeutic, retrospective continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) improves HbA1c with less hypoglycaemia in women with insulin-treated gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM).This prospective, randomized controlled, open-label trial evaluated 50 women with insulin-treated GDM randomized to either retrospective CGM (6-day sensor) at 28, 32 (...) and 36 weeks' gestation (Group 1, CGM, n = 25) or usual antenatal care without CGM (Group 2, control, n = 25). All women performed seven-point capillary blood glucose (CBG) profiles at least 3 days per week and recorded hypoglycaemic events (symptomatic and asymptomatic CBG < 3.5 mmol/l; non-fasting < 4.0 mmol/l). HbA1c was measured at 28, 33 and 37 weeks. In Group 1, both CGM and CBG data were used to manage diabetes, whereas mothers in Group 2 were managed based on CBG data alone.Baseline

Planned birth at or near term for improving health outcomes for pregnant women with gestational diabetes and their infants. Gestational diabetes is a type of diabetes that occurs during pregnancy. Women with gestational diabetes are more likely to experience adverse health outcomes such as pre-eclampsia or polyhydramnios (excess amniotic fluid). Their babies are also more likely to have health complications such as macrosomia (birthweight > 4000 g) and being large-for-gestational age (...) (birthweight above the 90th percentile for gestational age). Current clinical guidelines support elective birth, at or near term in women with gestational diabetes to minimise perinatal complications, especially those related to macrosomia.This review replaces a review previously published in 2001 that included "diabetic pregnant women", which has now been split into two reviews. This current review focuses on pregnant women with gestational diabetes and a sister review focuses on women with pre-existing

miR-494 protects pancreatic β-cell function by targeting PTEN in gestational diabetes mellitus Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is one of the most common pregnancy complications characterized by insulin resistance and pancreatic β-cell dysfunction. Increasing evidence suggests that microRNAs (miRNAs) play key roles in the diverse types of diabetes, including GDM. However, the underlying mechanisms remain largely unknown. The purpose of this study is to investigate the role of microRNAs (...) in GDM. The microarray data of dysregulated miRNAs in blood and placenta was retrieved in the GEO dataset under the accession number GSE19649. Quantitative reverse transcription PCR (qRT-PCR) was performed to analyze the expression levels of miR-494 in peripheral blood from twenty pairs of gestational diabetes (GDM) women and healthy women. Then, we investigated the effects of miR-494 on the insulin secretion of pancreatic β-cells. Moreover, the role of this miR-494 in regulating the proliferation
