The dietary intake of the study participants during the last three months before delivery was assessed through a valid and reliable semiquantitative food frequency questionnaire FFQ 24, which included 78 items of foods commonly consumed by Chinese. For the main analysis, we initially evaluated associations of the diet scores in quartiles to assess for non-linear trends with the outcomes. Second edn, Peking University Medical Press, Diet during pregnancy and risk of preeclampsia or gestational hypertension. Methods Participants This hospital-based case-control study was conducted between March and June at the First Affiliated Hospital of Zhengzhou University located in Zhengzhou, a medium-sized city in central China that has been well developed in recent years. References 1. Lancaster, who did not develop preeclampsia, acknowledged that for many pregnant women, going on a strict diet plan during pregnancy could be difficult due to nausea. However, some limitations must also be considered when interpreting our findings.
Little is known regarding the impact of this diet on health during pregnancy. The objective of this research is to examine associations of adherence to the DASH diet with hypertensive disorders of pregnancy HDP and other pregnancy outcomes. We conducted analyses with data that came from 1, women in Project Viva, a Boston-area longitudinal cohort recruited in early pregnancy Because pre-pregnancy weight status may modify these relationships, we tested for interactions between pre-pregnancy BMI and the DASH score. Overall, the DASH diet score mean The Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension DASH diet — a diet consisting of high consumption of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins; moderate consumption of unsaturated fats; and low consumption of red meats, sweets, saturated fats, trans fats, sugar, and sodium 1 — has been shown to reduce blood pressure 2 – 12, lower risk of cardiovascular disease risk 13, improve insulin sensitivity 14, and aid in weight loss 15 in non-pregnant populations. For example, pre-pregnancy obesity, excess weight gain during pregnancy, and history of elevated blood pressure are risk factors for hypertensive disorders of pregnancy 16, preterm birth 17, and small-for-gestational age 17, 18 ; and poor glycemic control is a determinant of gestational diabetes, preterm delivery, and large-for-gestational age Yet, little is known regarding the influence of the DASH diet during pregnancy, an important timeframe for short- and long-term health of both the mother and infant. Nevertheless, though these findings suggest a potential beneficial effect of the DASH diet on pregnancy complications, generalizability of the results is limited by the homogenous e. In this study, we examined associations of adherence to the DASH dietary pattern during the first trimester of pregnancy with hypertensive disorders of pregnancy and blood pressure in a multi-ethnic cohort of pregnant women In addition, we investigated associations of the DASH diet with other complications and outcomes of pregnancy, including gestational diabetes, gestational weight gain, preterm delivery, and birth size.
Results Participants Of the inpatients with preeclampsia seen in the hospital, Healthful dietary patterns and long-term weight change among women with a history of gestational diabetes mellitus.
