Example text

Progesterone facilitates fat storage and the decline in pituitary growth hormone plays a permissive role in the deposition of body fat. 16 Human placental lactogen stimulates hyperplasia and hypertrophy of beta islet cells. The resulting enhanced insulin secretion with normal peripheral and hepatic insulin sensitivity in early pregnancy promotes the storage of energy substrates through the inhibition of lipolysis, proteolysis, and glycogenolysis. Overall, insulin sensitivity decreases progressively during pregnancy.

Intuitively, possible changes in placental transport in diabetes may be implicated. 2 Alterations in fetal levels of pro- or anti-angiogenic factors in pregnancy with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) and Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM). Both types of diabetes are characterized by enhanced vascularization.

Tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) inhibits trophoblast invasion, whereas vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), leptin, insulin-like growth factors 1 and 2 (IGF1, IGF2) promote trophoblast invasion.
