Sex ratio variations among the offspring of women with diabetes in pregnancy
Diabetic Medicine, 08/21/2012
Ehrlich SF et al. – The crude sex ratios in this cohort suggest a possible gradient by category of maternal glycaemia. Women with gestational diabetes, a condition characterized by excessive fuel substrates, appear to deliver more males. Women with pregravid diabetes delivered the fewest males, possibly reflecting the unfavourable state of chronic disease.
