nd those born to obese mothers with normal blood-sugar levels weighed more than 6 ounces more.

The researchers also noted that babies born to women with excess weight and higher blood-sugar levels are more likely to have higher insulin and lower blood-sugar levels. These effects eventually may trigger obesity and diabetes in the child.

The study was published in the April issue of the journal Diabetes Care.

"The big message from this is when you look at the impact of nutrition, metabolism and weight on pregnancy outcomes, every woman -- on her first prenatal visit -- should get a prescription for a session with a dietitian and an appropriate healthy eating plan for her pregnancy," said Metzger, who also is a professor of metabolism and nutrition. "This doesn't happen but it should, and insurance companies should reimburse it."
