The Studies of Gestational diabetes, pre-pregnancy obesity and pregnancy weight gain in relation to excess fetal growth

The escalating rate of childhood obesity is a public health concern worldwide, with children in certain ethnic groups being disproportionately affected. In the study to to examine the joint effects of pre-pregnancy adiposity, pregnancy weight gain and gestational diabetes (GDM) in relation to excess fetal growth and to identify susceptible races or ethnic populations, by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, posted in PubMed, indicated that GDM, pre-pregnancy obesity and excessive pregnancy weight gain were jointly associated with elevated risk of giving birth to an LGA infant and the effects varied by race. This suggests that those involved in public health efforts aimed at preventing LGA deliveries should consider variations in racial groups when devising effective strategies.
