Study Finds Link Between Maternal Diabetes and Obesity and Diabetes in Their Kids

From Jennifer Moore

Young people with type 2 diabetes were more likely to have been exposed to diabetes or obesity in utero than their non-diabetic counterparts, a Diabetes Care study finds.

Using 79 diabetic youngsters aged 10 to 22 and a control group of 190 young non-diabetics as their subjects, Dana Dabelea, M.D., Ph.D. of the University of Colorado Denver and colleagues found that  "47.2%… of type 2 diabetes in youth could be attributed to intrauterine exposure to maternal diabetes and obesity."

What does this mean? Pregnant mothers, you need to watch your blood sugar.
