At study entry gestational age at screening, maternal age, body mass index, ethnic group, smoking status, parity and heart rate were recorded. Background characteristics of gravidas according to maternal glucose concentration, the Camden Study, United States, — Characteristic.
In the pilot RCT report lead by Martin et al. At the delivery, the attending midwife completed a registration form on the course of the delivery 12 - In accordance with journal policy, van den Hooven et al.
Many nutritional studies in pregnancy have focussed on the impact of changes in total or macronutrient intake. Experiences in the perinatal period also play a key role in defining how offspring respond to stress es in postnatal life.
We calculated the DII from first- and second-trimester food-frequency questionnaires by standardizing the dietary intakes of participants to global means, which were multiplied by the inflammatory effect score and summed.
Additionally, Choi et al. It seems reasonable that a relation between maternal glucose and fetal growth also should exist in women who do not have diabetes. Via the maternal blood circulation, cytokines released from, for example, an intrauterine infection reach the liver and hereby stimulate the synthesis of CRP.
They also discuss supplementation programs. Zheng J. While higher maternal glucose concentrations may lead to increased fetal growth, they also are associated with pregnancy complications when the mother has diabetes The DII was developed to provide an aggregate assessment of dietary inflammation in adults.
Ramlal R. Further, while low or excessive food intake per se is an important aspect of pregnancy development, the specific role that the placenta plays in nutrient metabolism and overall nutrient supply to the fetus in situations of undernutrion, overnutrition or poor diet composition is still poorly defined.
CRP is accepted as a good marker of acute inflammation, particularly within infection, but its value in chronic inflammation depends on the inflammation pathway involved and the underlying process.
The findings indicate that the approach reported is feasible and acceptable to pregnant women and that the methodology, including the collection of blood for biomarker assessment, could be adapted based on qualitative feedback to a larger, adequately powered RCT. · Maternal metabolism and obesity: modifiable determinants of pregnancy outcome.
