Example text

The release of various adipokines, including tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α, results in insulin resistance in adipose tissue, skeletal muscle and liver. Insulin resistance in adipose tissue leads to lipolysis and increased FFA release, even in the presence of relatively increased insulin levels. With continued nutrient excess the capacity of adipocyte storage capacity is exceeded and lipid “overflows” to other tissues, such as muscle and liver, worsening insulin resistance and resulting in lipotoxicity and metabolic inflexibility.

Placental hypervascularization may be supported by elevated levels of placental IGF2 and leptin, increased fetal IGF1, IGF2, leptin, fibroblast-specific growth factor 2 (FGF2), and reduced fetal TNF-α, as well as by fetal hypoxia. These derangements in the feto-placental compartment are characteristic of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM), overt diabetes, or both. 1Changed in T1DM; 2changed in GDM. Factors in bold denote similar dysregulation in T1DM and GDM. The placenta in diabetes in pregnancy have demonstrated an unchanged if not reduced transplacental glucose transport in GDM14 even on a total placenta weight basis.

12,13 It has remained an unresolved question whether placental overweight is the cause or consequence of fetal overgrowth in diabetes. Intuitively, possible changes in placental transport in diabetes may be implicated. 2 Alterations in fetal levels of pro- or anti-angiogenic factors in pregnancy with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) and Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM). Both types of diabetes are characterized by enhanced vascularization.
