Blood Pressure, Obesity, and Diabetes in Relation to Perinatal and Postpartum Complications

By leveraging the KPNC Gestational diabetes and Glucose Tolerance Registry, which includes rich data on blood glucose levels, obesity, gestational weight gain, we will add blood pressure levels for the earliest years to evaluate the individual and joint impact of pregnancy blood pressure, blood glucose, and obesity categories on perinatal complications and examine whether associations of pregnancy blood pressure, blood glucose, and obesity categories with perinatal complications vary by race/ethnicity in the pregnant women in the KPNC integrated health care system.
