Gestational diabetes mellitus and interpregnancy weight change: A populationbased cohort study

Weight change between pregnancies is believed to be an independent mechanism behind GDM. This study assessed the risk for GDM in second pregnancy by change in Body Mass Index (BMI) from first to second pregnancy and whether BMI and gestational weight gain modified the risk.

This observational cohort included 24,198 mothers and their two first pregnancies in data from the Medical Birth Registry of Norway (2006±2014). Weight change, defined as prepregnant BMI in second pregnancy minus prepregnant BMI in first pregnancy, was divided into 6 categories by units BMI.

Increased maternal and fetal cholesterol efflux capacity and placental CYP27A1 expression in preeclampsia

Preeclampsia increases a woman's risk of cardiovascular risk in later life. A decrease in cholesterol efflux capacity is linked to CVD. In this study, researchers hypothesized that in women with preeclampsia there would be a disruption of maternal/fetal plasma to efflux cholesterol, as well as
differences in the concentrations of both placental sterol
27-hydroxylase (CYP27A1) and apoA1 binding protein
(AIBP).

Risk Factors for Pregnancy-Associated Stroke in Women with Preeclampsia

Preeclampsia affects between 3 and 8 percent of pregnancies and increases risk of pregnancy-associated stroke (PAS). Data are limited on which women with preeclampsia are at highest risk for PAS.

Using billing data from the 2003 to 2012 New York State Department of Health inpatient database, researchers matched women with preeclampsia and PAS to preeclamptic controls based on age and race/ethnicity. Pre-defined PAS risk factors included pregnancy complications, infection present on admission, vascular risk factors, prothrombotic states, and coagulopathies.
