To date, only three polymorphisms (rs10830962, rs7754840 and rs1470579) are included in the genome-wide association study Catalog ( www.ebi.ac.uk/gwas ). However, the available evidence is limited in pregnant Chinese women. We aimed to explore the associations of three polymorphisms (rs10830962, rs7754840 and rs1470579) with GDM risk in a Chinese population. We conducted a case-control study (964 GDM cases and 1,021 controls) to evaluate the associations of these polymorphisms with GDM risk. A logistic regression model was used to calculate odds ratios (ORs) and their confidence intervals (CIs). After adjustment for age, prepregnancy BMI, parity, abnormal pregnancy history and family history of diabetes, the minor allele of rs10830962 (C > G) demonstrated a significant association with an increased risk of GDM (OR = 1.16, 95% CI = 1.02-1.31, P = 0.029 in the additive model). However, no significant association was observed between the other two polymorphisms and GDM. Subsequent functional annotation shows that rs10830962 is located in the regulatory elements of pancreatic islets, alters the binding affinity of motifs and regulates SNORA8 expression. Our findings demonstrate that rs10830962 is associated with an increased risk of GDM in the Chinese population. Further functional characterization is warranted to uncover the mechanism of the genotype-phenotype association.

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 subclass of DIABETES MELLITUS that is not INSULIN-responsive or dependent (NIDDM). It is characterized initially by INSULIN RESISTANCE and HYPERINSULINEMIA; and eventually by GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE; HYPERGLYCEMIA; and overt diabetes. Type II diabetes mellitus is no longer considered a disease exclusively found in adults. Patients seldom develop KETOSIS but often exhibit OBESITY.
