SWIFT Follow-Up in Women
The study is open to all women who participated in the original SWIFT Study. The goal is to identify metabolites from a single blood sample after delivery to better predict future risk of type 2 diabetes in women after gestational diabetes. This may lead to simpler testing and early prevention of diabetes and heart disease in women.
SWIFT Study in Youth
The SWIFT Study in Youth (SWIFT-Y) will include the preteen sons and daughters of SWIFT mothers, and determine how early life factors, such as early infant diet, child nutrition, and behaviors may affect their future growth and health.
