Effects of physical activity levels on impaired glucose tolerance and blood inflammatory markers during pregnancy
The aim of this study was physical activity may be associated with glucose tolerance in pregnancy, and measure levels of physical activity before and during pregnancy and correlate these findings with levels of inflammatory cytokines in pregnant woman with normal and abnormal glucose tolerance. Subjects(n=79) were divided into normal(n=29) and abnormal glucose tolerance groups(n=50). Physical activity was measured using the International Physical Activity Questionnaire. Serum levels of blood lipids levels, fasting insulin, fasting glucose, Inflammatory Marker were measured. The levels of physical activity during pregnancy were significantly lower in pregnancy woman with abnormal glucose tolerance (p<.05). No statistical differences were shown to exist in adiponectin, TNF-α and C-reactive protein levels between the two groups. We found that fasting glucose and physical activity during pregnancy were found to be independent factors associated with abnormal glucose tolerance in pregnancy. Vigorous physical activity during pregnancy may reduce the risk of developing abnormal glucose tolerance in pregnancy.
Key words: physical activity, inflammatory marker, abnormal glucose tolerance
