Research titel and description

  • Short- and long-term effects of insulin resistance in pregnancy. The overall aim of my project is to describe the development and evaluate both short- and long-term effects of (severe) insulin resistance in pregnancy among women with type 2 diabetes. Diabetes during pregnancy is a condition with important implications for pregnancy outcomes and long-term morbidity in mother and offspring. However, it is sparsely described for women with type 2 diabetes. Furthermore, obtaining knowledge about the pathophysiological mechanisms behind severe insulin resistance during pregnancy, as well as the effects and consequences of insulin treatment could benefit the women and the future generation.
