Fetal and Early Postnatal Influences on Child Metabolic Health After Gestational DiabetesThis 5-year RO1 study will determine the independent contribution of fetal exposures and early postnatal lifestyle factors on subsequent development of child adiposity and metabolic health among youth (ages 9 to 13 ) exposed to gestational diabetes in utero. The research study will evaluate cardiometabolic health factors and lifestyle behaviors in youth whose mothers were diagnosed with gestational diabetes and enrolled in the prospective, longitudinal SWIFT Study from 2008 to 2011. This study will conduct an in-person research exam and will coordinate the research exams in the children with 10-year follow up exams in the SWIFT women to reclassify glucose tolerance.
