64. Gestational Diabetes Mellitus and Frequency of Blood Glucose Monitoring: A Randomized Controlled Trial

Gestational Diabetes Mellitus and Frequency of Blood Glucose Monitoring: A Randomized Controlled Trial To assess whether testing blood glucose four times daily compared with four times every other day would lead to similar birth weights among patients with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM).This noninferiority randomized controlled trial was conducted at five centers. After receiving a diagnosis of GDM, women tested their blood glucose every day for 7 days. After that period, compliant women (...) were randomized, 149 (51%) were tested four times a day and 144 (49%) were tested every other day. Between the two groups, there were no significant differences with regard to need for medical treatment, induction, gestational age at delivery, mode of delivery, rate of preeclampsia, or shoulder dystocia. Birth weight was similar between both groups and the upper bound of the 90% confidence interval (CI) was less than 165 g, establishing noninferiority with a mean difference of -41 g (90% CI -137

71. Correlation of the plasma sphingoid base profile with results from oral glucose tolerance tests in gestational diabetes mellitus (Full text)

Correlation of the plasma sphingoid base profile with results from oral glucose tolerance tests in gestational diabetes mellitus Oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) is usually insufficient to accurately predict the risk for type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), it is therefore necessary to identify an additional biomarker that would most likely improve the accuracy of OGTT. The current OGTT was performed in 53 volunteers after ingestion of 75 g glucose in 250 ml water to each volunteer. Similarly (...) with gestational diabetes in comparison with normal subjects. These findings underlined that 1-deoxysphingolipids (1-deoxySLs) and their ratios with C18SAdiene could be significantly correlated with the glucose load of OGTT and might be used as predictive biomarkers along with OGTT for the risk assessment of diabetes.
