Childhood Adiposity and Neurodevelopmental Outcomes Among Offspring of Women With Type 1 Diabetes (CONCEPTT Kids)

2019-09-26 05:42:37 | BioPortfolio


This is a follow-up study of children born to mothers who participated in the CONCEPTT Trial. CONCEPTT (a multicentre randomized controlled trial of continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) in women with Type 1 diabetes during pregnancy).

The purpose of this study is to examine the association of maternal glycemic measures on childhood intelligence quotient (IQ), behavioural outcomes, language scores and weight measures. The children of the women who participated in CONCEPTT will be assessed.


The assessments will occur between the children's ages of 3-7 years. The assessment will include obtaining consent and child measurements including weight, height, waist circumference and skinfold thickness (at the triceps, subscapular, flank and quadriceps). Body mass index (BMI) and Waist-Height ratio will be calculated.

The other procedures will include:

1. the Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence-Fourth Edition (1);

2. ADHD Rating Scale IV (2) and ADHD Rating Scale-IV Preschool Version (3);

3. Social Responsiveness Scale-2 for ASD behaviours (4);

4. Children's performance on the Speed Naming and Phonological Processing subscales of the NEPSY-II (5)

5. Parent reported language development on the Children's Communication Checklist-2 for children over four years of age (6) or the Language Use Inventory (LUI) for children 36 to 47 months of age (7).

Basic demographic questions will be asked regarding the child's mother and father including age, ethnicity, education, occupation, family arrangement, presence of major illnesses, and diabetes complications. Questions regarding maternal diabetes, maternal and paternal family history of diabetes and risk factors for heart disease will be collected at the clinic visit.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Mice which carry mutant genes for neurologic defects or abnormalities.

Acute and chronic neurologic disorders associated with the various neurologic effects of ETHANOL. Primary sites of injury include the brain and peripheral nerves.

A mitochondrial disorder characterized by focal or generalized seizures, episodes of transient or persistent neurologic dysfunction resembling strokes, and ragged-red fibers on muscle biopsy. Affected individuals tend to be normal at birth through early childhood, then experience growth failure, episodic vomiting, and recurrent cerebral insults resulting in visual loss and hemiparesis. The cortical lesions tend to occur in the parietal and occipital lobes and are not associated with vascular occlusion. VASCULAR HEADACHE is frequently associated and the disorder tends to be familial. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1992, Ch56, p117)

Conditions characterized by persistent brain damage or dysfunction as sequelae of cranial trauma. This disorder may result from DIFFUSE AXONAL INJURY; INTRACRANIAL HEMORRHAGES; BRAIN EDEMA; and other conditions. Clinical features may include DEMENTIA; focal neurologic deficits; PERSISTENT VEGETATIVE STATE; AKINETIC MUTISM; or COMA.

A disorder whose predominant feature is a loss or alteration in physical functioning that suggests a physical disorder but that is actually a direct expression of a psychological conflict or need.
