Abstract

Research Original Investigation Physical Activity & Sedentary Behavior in Diabetes Invited Commentary A Call to Increase Physical Activity Among Women of Reproductive Age Is It Possible? Monique Hedderson, PhD; Assiamira Ferrara, MD, PhD Gestational diabetes (GDM) is an increasingly common preg- tributed to these null findings, further research is needed in nancy complication. Women with GDM are at extremely high this area. A pilot study randomized 49 women with a recent risk of developing diabetes, especially in the first 5 years after history of GDM (within 3 years) to a 13-week intervention of a delivery. In their article on the Nurses’ Health Study (NHS) II web-based pedometer program or a control condition, which 1 5 in this issue of JAMA Internal Medicine, Bao et al found that included a letter about diabetes risk reduction. The investi- following a GDM pregnancy, increasing physical activity lev- gators found no difference in physical activity between the els were associated with a re- groups. Taken together, these studies suggest that more in- duced risk of progression tensive interventions may be needed to increase physical ac- from GDM to diabetes. This tivity in GDM women during the postpartum period. There is Related article page
