Large babies born to mothers with diabetes have nearly three times the risk of growing from obesity or obesity, scientists concluded.
The same study showed that breastfeeding in the first five months of life reduces the chances of a child being overweight or overweight about 25%.
The researchers looked at more than 81,000 pre-school children born between January 2005 and August 20013 in Alberta, Canada.
Children were grouped into different categories by their height and weight, their size at birth, and whether their mothers had diabetes while they were pregnant or not.
The analysis showed that, compared with normal-sized babies born to mothers without diabetes, those who were higher than the average on birth and whose mothers had diabetes were 2.79 times more likely to be overweight or obese.
A further study showed that the high risks of childhood obesity contributed to the fact that only men were caused by gestation with a birth rate of 39%.
The researchers took into account cases of type 1 and type 2 diabetes. The child's obesity was stronger for mothers with type 2 illnesses.
Researchers led by Dr. Padme Kaul of the University of Alberta wrote in Diabetologia: "We hope that these findings will encourage public health campaigns that advise women planning to get pregnant, such as smoking, drinking alcohol and other choice of lifestyle, their weight before than pregnancy, and weight gain and blood sugar control during pregnancy can significantly affect the future health of their children.
