Did they control for BMI? Did they speculate on the correlation?

I'm just not pleased to hear this and want an alternative explanation! ;-b

That does NOT make me happy!!! Not having GD was the one thing that I passed in pregnancy!

Preeclampsia and risk of subsequent diabetes

Postby caryn » Mon Oct 26, 2009 07:16 pm

Preeclampsia was associated with a higher risk of diabetes adjusting for age, primigravidity, and gestational diabetes (hazard ratio, HR 1.82, 95%CI 1.26, 2.62) and in women without gestational diabetes (n = 30,109; HR 1.86, 95%CI 1.22, 2.84).

Great. Even if you didn't get GD, you're at almost double the risk of developing diabetes. In fact, there's hardly any difference between the two groups.
