Aim is to better understand how chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) increases in a woman's risk of developing gestational diabetes (GDM) during pregnancy. Women with HBV may be almost 88% more likely to develop GDM during their pregnancy but the mechanism is not well understood. Even when traditional risk factors are taken into account, there still remains an increased risk of almost 25%. To understand this, we will invite pregnant women with HBV to be followed throughout their pregnancy collecting information related to their HBV.
