2019-02-18 22:49:17 | BioPortfolio


The prevalence of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) has been progressively increasing. It is important to recognize and treat GDM to minimize the risk of maternal and neonatal complications. Multifaceted professional interventions are effective in the management of GDM and mobile healthcare can be an effective approach. The purpose of the current study was to develop and evaluate a model for prevention and management of GDM using mobile healthcare. Subjects with no previous history of diabetes, who were diagnosed with GDM during 24-28 weeks of gestation, were randomly divided into a conventional management group and a mobile management group. The conventional mangement group received conventional GDM management and could freely use the mobile healthcare application. The mobile management group received mobile healthcare services including tailored mobile coaching. The effectiveness of the management using the application were evaluated through the result values of the laboratory tests, anthropometric measurement performed during the study period and perinatal outcomes.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Round-shaped structure usually located in the upper fundus of the UTERUS in early pregnancy. It comprises EMBRYO; AMNIOTIC FLUID; and YOLK SAC. It is visible in PRENATAL ULTRASONOGRAPHY by the fifth week of pregnancy. Its size is often used to determine and monitor GESTATIONAL AGE; FETAL GROWTH; and PREGNANCY COMPLICATIONS.
