Keywords gestational diabetes mellitus; pregnancy; offspring; prospective study
Description Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) represents a risk factor for both mother and her offspring in short-term (peripartal morbidity) as well as long-term horizon (postpartum diabetes or foetal programming). A lot of studies focused at peri/postpartal complications and selected parameters of GDM mother´s offspring, however relatively few were designed as prospective (starting with a delivery and continuing to given age). No such study focused on this topic in Czech Republic so far. The aim of our study was to ascertain possible anthropometric and developmental abnormalities and/or morbidity in offspring of GDM mothers in a 3-year follow-up. Pilot results indicate certain differences in selected parameters in offspring of GDM mothers, however validity is diminished by small number of respondents. Higher response rate and longer follow-up is warranted to increase validity.
