24-Hour Activity and Cardiometabolic Health in Chinese American Women with a History of Gestational Diabetes

Brief description of study

The purpose of this study is to (1) characterize the 24-hour activity and cardiometabolic risk profile of Chinese American women with a history of gestational diabetes and (2) describe the barriers and facilitators to meeting physical activity and sleep guidelines for these women. Your cardiometabolic risk profile includes your blood sugar level, blood cholesterol or triglyceride levels, blood pressure, body fat percentage, and so on, and together they influence your risk of heart disease, stroke, and diabetes.

Gestational diabetes is a type of diabetes that is diagnosed for the first-time during pregnancy. We are asking you to take part in this research study because you had a recent pregnancy complicated by gestational diabetes, which increases your risk of future diabetes and heart diseases. In this research study, we hope to learn how women like you manage their 24-hour activity (including physical activity, sedentary [prolonged sitting] behavior, and sleep activity) and how it impacts your cardiometabolic health. We hope to use the information from this study to develop interventions to improve physical activity and sleep for mothers with a history of gestational diabetes, improve their cardiometabolic health, and prevent chronic diseases.
