Effect of maternal glucose load on fetal activity.
Aladjem S., Feria A., Rest J., Gull K., O'Connor M.
The effect of a MGL upon fetal activity has been studied in 39 normal and 54 high-risk pregnant patients between 30 and 42 weeks' gestation. The perinatal morbidity and mortality rates were significantly lower in the group showing an increase in fetal activity following a MGL. It is suggested that this may be useful for identifying the fetus at risk.
