This project is part of MoBa eTox, the biobank of MoBa. Blood samples was drawn in week 18 of pregnancy for 2983 women, at the time of ultrasound, and HbA1c levels were measured. The value of measuring HbA1c at this time of pregnancy is not well-established, and currently not recommended as screening for gestational diabetes mellitus. We explored different perinatal outcomes in relation to HbA1c levels, and propose that HbA1c measurement earlier than the current recommended glucose tolerance testing in weeks 24-28 might identify women at risk of adverse outcomes.
