Maternal #diabetes during pregnancy and early onset of #cardiovascular disease in offspring: population based cohort study with 40 years of follow-up

To evaluate the associations between maternal diabetes diagnosed before or during pregnancy and early onset cardiovascular disease (CVD) in offspring during their first four decades of life. ..Offspring of mothers with diabetes had a 29% increased overall rate of early onset CVD (hazard ratio 1.29 (95% confidence interval 1.21 to 1.37); cumulative incidence among offspring unexposed to maternal diabetes at 40 years of age 13.07% … Continue reading Maternal #diabetes during pregnancy and early onset of #cardiovascular disease in offspring: population based cohort study with 40 years of follow-up
