    Could hormones in the urine help to diagnose gestational diabetes?

    Dr Sara White, Dr Norman Taylor, David Taylor, Dr Carolyn Gill, and the UPBEAT consortium

    We need better ways to diagnose diabetes early in pregnancy. Our researchers are looking at whether a urine test could spot the early signs of gestational diabetes, and so make sure that treatment can start as soon as possible.

    Finding a new way to diagnose gestational diabetes

    Gestational diabetes is sometimes diagnosed too late to be treated effectively. Our researchers are studying a group of molecules which could help to spot the condition early. This could help doctors to reduce the risks linked to diabetes for mother and baby.

    Understanding how blood sugar levels change during gestational diabetes

    Rebecca Reynolds, Fiona Denison, Niamh McClennan

    We have treatments for gestational diabetes, but they don’t always work well enough to prevent problems during pregnancy. In this project, our researchers are studying how blood sugar levels change throughout the day during early pregnancy. This will help us know how and when to intervene to treat gestational diabetes, and so prevent complications.

    Predicting gestational diabetes in obese pregnant women

    Prof Lucilla Poston, Dr Sara White, Mr Paul Seed, Dr Annette Briley, Dr Angela Flynn, Dr Dharmintra Pasupathy, Jessamine Hunt, Dr Claire Singh, Janelle Phillips, Dr Carolyn Gill, Ms Anna Brockbank, Ms Ana Brennand

    Gestational diabetes can carry risks for both mother and baby. Our researchers are looking at whether a test in early pregnancy can identify women at risk of developing diabetes, ensuring that they get the support they need as soon as possible.

    Diabetes, fetal growth and stillbirth

    Dr Jenny Myers, Dr Susan Greenwood, Professor John Aplin, Giovanna Bernativičius, Matina Hakim

    Women suffering from diabetes are much more likely to suffer from stillbirths. We want to understand how high blood glucose can affect the growing baby and the placenta, so we can focus on helping women with diabetes to have safe and healthy pregnancies.

    UPBEAT: how to predict gestational diabetes in obese women

    Professor Lucilla Poston, Dr Annette Briley, Dr Dharmintra Pasupathy, Mr Paul Seed, Sara L White, the UPBEAT Consortium

    Tommy’s are supporting researchers to develop a test that could be used early in pregnancy to tell if a woman is likely to develop diabetes.

    The GRACES trial: comparing ways of treating diabetes in pregnancy

    Jane Norman, Rebecca Reynolds, Fiona Denison, Mark Strachan, Claire Alexander, Corrine Love, Robert Lindsay, Fiona Mackenzie, Ed Juszczak, Ben Stenson

    Researchers have found that controlling diabetes during pregnancy using a combination of pills is not as effective as treatment with insulin injections.

    Evaluating the impact of a new antenatal screening for gestational diabetes

    Dharmintra Pasupathy, Catherine Williamson

    Our researchers have lowered the threshold at which women are diagnosed with gestational diabetes. We want to see how this affects pregnancy outcomes.

    Does taking metformin during pregnancy have any long-term effects for children?

    Rebecca Reynolds, Jane Norman

    Metformin is a drug used to treat gestational diabetes. Our scientists want to understand whether the drug has any long-term effects on children. This will ensure that metformin can be used as a safe treatment to reduce the risks of diabetes for mother and baby.
