Resistance and Arterial Stiffness: Impact of Gestational Diabetes on Pulse Wave Velocity .

We recruited 60 pregnant women (G1), control group, included 25 normoglycemic pregnant (G2) included 35 women with Gestational Diabetes Mellitus (GDM). PWVft(G1: 5.99±1.23; G2:10.3±1.9; p˂0.0001) are significantly higher in diabetic group. PWVft is positively correlate to HOMAIR index Conclusion : Gestational diabetes might induce an increase of pulse wave velocity expressing increment of arterial stiffness. This constitute an early underlying cardiovascular risk
