Research description

  • Through my work as a clinician, taking care of pregnant women with diabetes, I have gained a genuine interest in glucose metabolism and insulin resistance during pregnancy.
  • By use of intravenous glucose tolerance tests (IVGTT) and hyperinsulinemic euglycemic clamps (HEC) we have evaluated insulin resistance and beta-cell function in women with multiple pregnancies, and in women with gestational diabetes.
  • In ongoing studies, we assess the development of insulin resistance during pregnancy in women with diabetes and search for hormonal and inflammatory factors that can explain severe insulin resistance in pregnancy.
