Does a mother’s BMI and/or the presence of gestational diabetes increase the chance that a child will become obese?
In an article published May 10, 2019, Assistant Professor Samantha Ehrlich investigates this important question. The article titled “Diagnostic thresholds for pregnancy hyperglycemia, maternal weight status and the risk of childhood obesity in a diverse Northern California cohort using health care delivery system data,” was published by PLOS ONE. It is open-sourced for all to read.
