Background: Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) could detect certain patterns of hyperglycemia at different times of the day that may help predict the development of maternal-fetal complications and the probability of needing pharmacological treatment. Methods: This study prospectively examined 77 women with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) who were placed on a CGM system for 6 days after diagnosis between 26 and 32 weeks of gestation. Patterns of hyperglycemia before meals (period of time of an hour just before meal) (>95 mg/dL), after meals (time interval of 2 h and half just after meal) (>140 mg/dL), and overnight (0-7 am) (>120 mg/dL) and their association with maternal-fetal complications and pharmacological treatment were analyzed. Receiver operating characteristic curves were developed to estimate the validity of the various patterns in detecting the need for pharmacological treatment. Results: A statistically significant relationship was observed between time in hyperglycemia after lunch and macrosomia (P = 0.035) and large for gestational age infants (P = 0.010). Pharmacological treatment was required for patients with time above range (TAR; P = 0.006) and those with hyperglycemia patterns before breakfast (P <...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
