Common pregnancy complications significantly raise risk of future diabetes

(April 16, 2013 - Insidermedicine)

From Toronto – According to research published in PLOS Medicine, two common conditions that occur during pregnancy raise risk of future diabetes. Researchers studied over 1 million pregnant women between 1994 and 2008. Participants were followed until 2011. Results showed that women with gestational hypertension alone were at 1.95x increased risk of future diabetes, while women with preeclampsia alone were at 2x increased risk, and those with gestational diabetes were at 13x increased risk. When women had both gestational hypertension and gestational diabetes, they were at 18x increased risk of future diabetes, while those with preeclampsia and gestational diabetes were at 16x increased risk.
