Abstract

BackgroundLifestyle interventions are the primary prevention strategy for gestational diabetes (GDM) in obese/overweight women; however, these interventions have shown limited effectiveness. Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) intake has shown beneficial effects on glucose metabolism, lipid fractions and inflammatory factors in women who already have GDM. Combining PUFAs supplementation with a lifestyle intervention could achieve lower increase of glucose levels by improving insulin sensitivity. Our aim is to assess two prenatal nutritional interventions (home-based dietary counseling and/or docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) supplementation) delivered to obese/overweight women during pregnancy for them and their offspring to achieve better metabolic control.
