Early Tracking of Childhood Health Determinants (ETCHED) Study

May 20th, 2022 - Approximately 50% of Pima Indian children from diabetic pregnancies develop T2DM by age 25. Since intrauterine exposure to diabetes leads to a higher risk of diabetes in the offspring, the risk might be greatly diminished by preventing diabetes during pregnancy or ameliorating its effects. Standard prenatal and obstetrical care has not been able to abolish this excess risk in the Pima Indians, ...
