Summary
In this thesis, prevalence and risk factors of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) and infant macrosomia were examined among the Cree of James Bay, and the risk for these outcomes was compared with non-Native Canadian women. The prevalence of GDM using the National Diabetes Data Group criteria among the Cree was 12.8 percent, among the highest ever reported for an Aboriginal group. A significant interaction was noted between ethnicity and GDM on risk for macrosomia. GDM increases the risk of macrosomia 4.5-fold among the Cree but had no significant effect among non-Natives. The results of this research indicates the need to control pregravid obesity through culturally acceptable dietary modifications and exercise in order to minimize the risk for GDM among Cree women
