Maternal gestational diabetes and infant feeding, nutrition and growth: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
Maternal gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is associated with birth complications and, for the offspring, increased risk of insulin resistance, childhood obesity and type 2 diabetes in adulthood. This review aimed to clarify whether infant feeding, growth and nutritional intake in the first 2 years contribute to the mechanisms of these increased risks.
Effect of lactation on the recurrence rate of gestational diabetes mellitus: a retrospective cohort study.
This retrospective cohort study examined whether breastfeeding after a Gestational Diabetes Mellitus pregnancy altered the risk of developing GDM in a subsequent pregnancy.
Lactation Duration and Long-term Risk for Incident Type 2 Diabetes in Women With a History of Gestational Diabetes Mellitus
Participants in the longitudinal Nurses’ Health Study II (NHS II) who had been diagnosed with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM), provided blood samples and information on their diabetes status for the Diabetes and Womens’ Health Study. Data on lactation duration was extracted from the NHS II records. This study collected data from women a median of 32 years after their diagnosis with GDM, at a median age of 50 years.
