Prevalence and impact of thyroid dysfunction in pregnant women with gestational diabetes: A comprehensive evaluation
Author(s): Lalit Narayan Yadav and Dr. Jayanta Das
Abstract: Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is a common metabolic disorder during pregnancy, and thyroid dysfunction is a prevalent endocrine condition among pregnant women. This research paper aims to comprehensively evaluate the prevalence, clinical significance, and potential implications of thyroid dysfunction in pregnant women with gestational diabetes. The study will involve a large cohort of pregnant women diagnosed with GDM, and their thyroid function will be assessed through thyroid hormone levels (TSH, T3, and T4) and thyroid autoantibodies. The prevalence of thyroid dysfunction (hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, or thyroid autoimmunity) will be determined, and its association with GDM severity, pregnancy outcomes, and maternal-fetal health will be analyzed. Additionally, the research will investigate the impact of thyroid dysfunction on insulin resistance, glucose control, and the need for medical intervention in managing GDM. The findings from this study will provide valuable insights into whether routine thyroid function screening should be recommended for pregnant women with GDM and whether addressing thyroid dysfunction could improve pregnancy outcomes in this high-risk population.
