Prospective study of red meat intake in the first and second trimesters and the risk of gestational diabetes mellitus in Chengdu in 2017

The odds of suffering from gestational diabetes mellitus may be stacked against pregnant women who enjoy consuming red meat.

This study analyzed the red meat-gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) connection hypothesis. Researchers from China compared red meat consumption and gestational diabetes mellitus diagnosis rates among 985 pregnant women. 

The research team observed a heightened risk of gestational diabetes in the second trimester among generous consumers of red meat. This study demonstrates that pregnant women on high meat diet may have increased tendency to acquire gestational diabetes mellitus.
