Background: Low and high birth weight (BW) has been linked to the increased risk of infant mortality, obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases. Metabolic biomarkers, glucose, lipids and insulin in human umbilical cord blood could potentially reflect the new-born metabolic status. This study aims to assess the concentration of glucose, lipids and insulin in cord blood, and to investigate the association between these metabolic parameters and BW.Meth...

Background: The fetal insulin hypothesis proposes that low birth weight, insulin resistance, and decreased insulin secretion in adulthood are genetically mediated. Babies with low birth weight have higher morbidity and mortality risk in adulthood. However, this situation could also occur in children with adequate weight at birth with genetic risk factors. The polymorphisms rs11708067 in ADCY5 and rs7754840 in CDKAL1 have been associated with low birth weight,...
