Abstract A recently standardized ultrasound technique for measuring subcutaneous adipose tissue (SAT) was applied to normal-weight, overweight and obese persons. Eight measurement sites were used: upper abdomen, lower abdomen, erector spinae, distal triceps, brachioradialis, lateral thigh, front thigh and medial calf. Fat compression was avoided. Fat patterning in 38 participants (body mass index: 18.6–40.3 kgm −2 ; SAT thickness sums from eight sites: 12–245 mm) was evaluated using a software s...

Background Precise and accurate field methods for body composition analyses in athletes are needed urgently. Aim Standardisation of a novel ultrasound (US) technique for accurate and reliable measurement of subcutaneous adipose tissue (SAT). Methods Three observers captured US images of uncompressed SAT in 12 athletes and applied a semiautomatic evaluation algorithm for multiple SAT measurements. Results Eight new sites are recommended: upper abdomen, lower abdomen, erector spinae, distal tricep...

Insulin resistance is one pretty troublesome entity which very commonly aggravates metabolic syndrome. Many methods and indices are available for the estimation of insulin resistance. It is essential to test and validate their reliability before they can be used as an investigation in patients. At present, hyperinsulinemic euglycemic clamp and intravenous glucose tolerance test are the most reliable methods available for estimating insulin resistance and are being used as a reference standard. S...

Abstract Background High pre-pregnancy body mass index is a known risk factor for gestational diabetes mellitus, but the contribution of abdominal adiposity to insulin resistance (IR) in pregnancy is not well understood. We assessed the association between abdominal adiposity in early pregnancy and IR. Methods We completed a prospective cohort study of 79 pregnant women. Visceral adipose tissue (VAT) depth was measured by ultrasonography at 11 to 14weeks' gestation, at the time of routine fetal ...

The aim of this study is to evaluate whether ultrasonographic visceral fat thickness measurement in the early gestational period is useful for predicting the development of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) and metabolic syndrome (MS). The visceral fat thickness and subcutaneous fat thickness were measured via ultrasound at the first prenatal visit. The correlation between visceral and subcutaneous fat thickness and MS parameters, such as dyslipidemia, hypertension, and insulin resistance, was...

Summary Background Macrosomia is a risk factor for adverse delivery outcomes. We investigated the prevalence, risk factors, and delivery outcomes of babies with macrosomia in 23 developing countries in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Methods We analysed data from WHO's Global Survey on Maternal and Perinatal Health, which was a facility-based cross-sectional study that obtained data for women giving birth in 373 health facilities in 24 countries in Africa and Latin America in 2004–05, and in As...

Context The risk of type 2 diabetes mellitus is heterogeneous among obese individuals. Factors that discriminate prediabetes or diabetes risk within this population have not been well characterized. A dysfunctional adiposity phenotype, characterized by excess visceral fat and insulin resistance, may contribute to diabetes development in those with obesity. Objective To investigate associations between adiposity phenotypes and risk for incident prediabetes and diabetes in a multiethnic, populatio...

The prevalence of obesity in pregnancy is rising exponentially; about 15–20% of pregnant women now enter pregnancy with a BMI which would define them as obese. This paper provides a review of the strong links between obesity and adverse pregnancy outcome which operate across a range of pregnancy complications. For example, obesity is associated with an increased risk of maternal mortality, gestational diabetes mellitus, thromboembolism, pre-eclampsia and postpartum haemorrhage. Obesity also comp...

ABSTRACT MicroRNAs play important roles in gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM), and this study aimed to elucidate the clinical significance of miR-96-5p in diagnosing GDM.There are 123 pregnant women diagnosed with GDM and 123 healthy pregnant women were enrolled as control participants. Placenta and plasma samples from the patients and control participants were collected, and quantitative reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-qPCR) was performed to determine miR-96-5p expression l...

Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is a common pregnancy-related condition afflicting 5-36% of pregnancies. It is associated with many morbid maternal and fetal outcomes. Mood dysregulations (MDs, e.g., depression, distress, and anxiety) are common among women with GDM, and they exacerbate its prognosis and hinder its treatment. Hence, in addition to early detection and proper management of GDM, treating the associated MDs is crucial. Maternal hyperglycemia and MDs result from a complex network...

BACKGROUND: Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is the most common metabolic disorder that can occur during pregnancy and is associated with a long-term risk of both maternal and neonatal comorbidities. This study aimed to investigate the association between echocardiographic epicardial adipose tissue (EAT) and the risk for GDM during the early second trimester of pregnancy. METHOD: We recruited all singleton pregnancies between January 2014 and December 2018 at 16 weeks + 0 days to 19 weeks + 6...
