Body fat mass and the proportion of very large adipocytes in pregnant women are associated with gestational insulin resistance.
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2016

Pregnancy is accompanied by fat gain and insulin resistance. Changes in adipose tissue morphology and function during pregnancy and factors contributing to gestational insulin resistance are incompletely known. We sought to characterize adipose tissue in trimesters 1 and 3 (T1/T3) in normal weight (NW) and obese pregnant women, and identify adipose tissue-related factors associated with gestational insulin resistance.
