Density distribution of erythrocytes in class A2 (insulin requiring) gestational diabetes

Arch Gynecol Obstet. 1996;258(2):65-8. doi: 10.1007/BF00626025.


We evaluated the age distribution of erythrocytes in pregnancy complicated by gestational diabetes class A2 by the density distribution of cells (DDC) method. The values for normal pregnancy and nonpregnant women were obtained from recently published studies. The cumulative density distribution of cells (DDC) of women with gestational diabetes resembled that of normal pregnancy.
