Diabetes Prevention in Women With a Recent History of Gestational Diabetes (Focus Groups)

2014-08-27 03:14:38 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The objective of this research is to conduct focus groups in order to adapt the Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) so that it may successfully target women diagnosed with gestational diabetes (GDM) who are at high risk for developing Type 2 diabetes in the post-partum period. As this research seeks to gather formative data for a future intervention, the focus groups will: 1) provide information to maximize participation in the future intervention and 2) inform the location, content and format of the intervention.

We will be conducting focus groups and informant interviews to determine the DPP modifications necessary for adapting to the post-partum lifestyles of women with a recent history of GDM. Subjects will attend a 1 hour focus group or phone interview where they will be encouraged to respond to the facilitators' questions and to each other's comments on topics such as: gestational diabetes, healthy eating, exercise, and other type 2 diabetes prevention related activities. Working with a variety of health care providers, including endocrinologists, obstetricians and nurse-practitioners, we will identify and enroll up to 60 women total who are either current GDM patients at BWH or have a recent history of GDM who have delivered at Brigham and Women's Hospital in the last 5 years.

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.

Trophoblastic growth, which may be gestational or nongestational in origin. Trophoblastic neoplasia resulting from pregnancy is often described as gestational trophoblastic disease to distinguish it from germ cell tumors which frequently show trophoblastic elements, and from the trophoblastic differentiation which sometimes occurs in a wide variety of epithelial cancers. Gestational trophoblastic growth has several forms, including HYDATIDIFORM MOLE and CHORIOCARCINOMA. (From Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 3d ed, p1691)

An infant having a birth weight lower than expected for its gestational age.
