Fasting Glycemia as Screening Tool to Rule-Out Gestational Diabetes in Low-Risk Population.

Summary of "Fasting Glycemia as Screening Tool to Rule-Out Gestational Diabetes in Low-Risk Population."

The use of a glucose challenge test as the universal screening for gestational diabetes is common in many countries. This test represents significant costs for laboratories and inconveniences for the patients, who have to wait for one hour and, very often, feel discomfort and nausea. In this work we propose the use of fasting glycemia, in a population with low prevalence of gestational diabetes as a pre-screening test that would avoid the oral glucose overload in those pregnant women with low risk of gestational diabetes.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Diabetes mellitus induced by PREGNANCY but resolved at the end of pregnancy. It does not include previously diagnosed diabetics who become pregnant (PREGNANCY IN DIABETICS). Gestational diabetes usually develops in late pregnancy when insulin antagonistic hormones peaks leading to INSULIN RESISTANCE; GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE; and HYPERGLYCEMIA.

A condition of fetal overgrowth leading to a large-for-gestational-age FETUS. It is defined as BIRTH WEIGHT greater than 4,000 grams or above the 90th percentile for population and sex-specific growth curves. It is commonly seen in GESTATIONAL DIABETES; PROLONGED PREGNANCY; and pregnancies complicated by pre-existing diabetes mellitus.

The state of PREGNANCY in women with DIABETES MELLITUS. This does not include either symptomatic diabetes or GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE induced by pregnancy (DIABETES, GESTATIONAL) which resolves at the end of pregnancy.

The time period before the development of symptomatic diabetes. For example, certain risk factors can be observed in subjects who subsequently develop INSULIN RESISTANCE as in type 2 diabetes (DIABETES MELLITUS, TYPE 2).

A screening phenotype consisting of both elevated WAIST CIRCUMFERENCE and elevated fasting TRIGLYCERIDES level.
