Key clinical point: Women with type 2 diabetes (T2D) and a history of gestational diabetes (GD) are at a higher risk for myocardial infarction (MI) and coronary artery disease compared with those with T2D and no GD history.
Major finding: Among women with T2D, those with a history of GD had a significantly higher risk for MI (adjusted odds ratio [aOR] 2.53; 95% CI 1.18-5.40) and a borderline increased risk for coronary artery disease (aOR 2.15; 95% CI 1.00-4.66) compared with those without GD history.
Study details: This cross-sectional study included 2494 women aged ≥20 years with T2D, of which 385 (15.4%) had a history of GD.
Disclosures: This study received no specific funding. The authors declared no conflicts of interest.
