Although no data on intramyocellular lipid content (IMCL) have been available up to now in pregnant women it has been shown by measurement with 1H nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy that increased IMCL in soleus muscles and in tibialis anterior muscles (IMCL-T) characterized insulin-resistant women with prior GDM 3 months after delivery. Furthermore, insulin-sensitive Endocrine Changes in Diabetic Pregnancy 21 women with prior GDM requiring insulin therapy during pregnancy had higher IMCL than those on nutrition therapy only [17].

It was shown that GDM is characterized by an augmented glucose response to glucose administration and by a 50% reduction of insulin sensitivity compared to women with normal glucose tolerance (NT) [7]. Following delivery, the glucose response decreased markedly, being still higher than in control women, and insulin sensitivity improved but remained approximately 50% lower compared to weight-matched control women. These data are in line with data in obese DM2 patients who showed that approximately 60% of their insulin resistance was due to diabetes.
