Interconception care for women with a history of gestational diabetes for improving maternal and infant outcomes. Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is associated with adverse health outcomes for both mother and infant both perinatally and long-term. Women with a history of GDM are at risk of recurrence in subsequent pregnancies and may benefit from intervention in the interconception period to improve maternal and infant health outcomes.To investigate the effects of interconception care (...) assessed study eligibility. In future updates of this review, at least two review authors will extract data and assess the risk of bias of included studies.One ongoing trial was identified. No eligible completed trials were identified.The role of interconception care for women with a history of gestational diabetes remains unclear. Randomised controlled trials are required evaluating different forms and protocols of interconception care for these women on perinatal and long-term maternal and infant

131. Fasting Plasma Glucose at 24-28 Weeks to Screen for Gestational Diabetes Mellitus: New evidence from China (PubMed)

Fasting Plasma Glucose at 24-28 Weeks to Screen for Gestational Diabetes Mellitus: New evidence from China To evaluate the usefulness of a fasting plasma glucose (FPG) at 24-28 weeks' gestation to screen for gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM).The medical records and results of a 75-g 2-h oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) of 24,854 pregnant women without known pre-GDM attending prenatal clinics in 15 hospitals in China were examined.FPG cutoff value of 5.1 mmol/L identified 3,149 (12.1 (...) %) pregnant women with GDM. FPG cutoff value of 4.4 mmol/L ruled out GDM in 15,369 (38.2%) women. With use of this cutoff point, 12.2% of patients with mild GDM will be missed. The positive predictive value is 0.322, and the negative predictive value is 0.928.FPG at 24-28 weeks' gestation could be used as a screening test to identify GDM patients in low-resource regions. Women with an FPG between ≥4.4 and ≤5.0 mmol/L would require a 75-g OGTT to diagnose GDM. This would help to avoid approximately one

132. Metformin vs. insulin in gestational diabetes. A randomized study characterizing metformin patients needing additional insulin (PubMed)

Metformin vs. insulin in gestational diabetes. A randomized study characterizing metformin patients needing additional insulin We compared metformin with insulin as treatment of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM). Furthermore, we aimed to characterize metformin-treated patients needing additional insulin to achieve prespecified glucose targets.We conducted a single centre randomized controlled study with non-inferiority design comparing metformin and insulin in the treatment of 217 GDM (...) additional insulin were older (p = 0.04), their oral glucose tolerance test had been performed earlier and diabetes therapy started earlier in gestation (p = 0.01 and p = 0.004, respectively). The risk for additional insulin was 4.6-fold in women with baseline serum fructosamine concentration above median compared with those below median.Metformin is an effective alternative to insulin in the treatment of GDM patients. Serum fructosamine may help in predicting the adequacy of metformin treatment alone.©

Patients with pre-GDM were excluded; data for FPG at the first prenatal (...) visit and one-step GDM screening with 75-g oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) performed between 24 and 28 weeks of gestation were collected and analyzed.The median ± SD FPG value was 4.58 ± 0.437. FPG decreased with increasing gestational age. FPG level at the first prenatal visit was strongly correlated with GDM diagnosed at 24-28 gestational weeks (χ(2) = 959.3, P < 0.001). The incidences of GDM were 37.0, 52.7, and 66.2%, respectively, for women with FPG at the first prenatal visit between 5.10

139. The usefulness of HbA1c in postpartum reclassification of gestational diabetes. (PubMed)

The usefulness of HbA1c in postpartum reclassification of gestational diabetes. To investigate the role of HbA1c in postpartum reclassification of gestational diabetes (GDM) we studied 364 women with GDM attending the postpartum reclassification assessment of their glucose tolerance status. A 75-g oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) was performed and HbA1c was determined. Diabetes was diagnosed in 12 (3.3%), 7 (1.9%) and 2 (0.6%) women according to the fasting plasma glucose (FPG) and/or the 2 (...) -hour OGTT, the FPG alone and HbA1c levels, respectively. The sensitivity and specificity for HbA1c to diagnose diabetes was 16.7% and 100%, respectively, for FPG and OGTT criteria. The combination of a cutoff value of 5.5% for HbA1c and FPG allowed us to identify 95.1% of women with any kind of glucose intolerance. We conclude that in the early postpartum period, the cutoff of 6.5% for HbA1c alone has low sensitivity for the diagnosis of diabetes compared with OGTT, but the combination of FPG
