Reduced insulin action in late pregnancy could also be related to changes in fatty acid composition of muscles. Although no data on intramyocellular lipid content (IMCL) have been available up to now in pregnant women it has been shown by measurement with 1H nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy that increased IMCL in soleus muscles and in tibialis anterior muscles (IMCL-T) characterized insulin-resistant women with prior GDM 3 months after delivery. Furthermore, insulin-sensitive Endocrine Changes in Diabetic Pregnancy 21 women with prior GDM requiring insulin therapy during pregnancy had higher IMCL than those on nutrition therapy only [17].

The time axis has been split to better show the patterns during the first half hour [from 5]. in insulin requirements was associated with de novo C-peptide release and thus endogenous insulin secretion in the first trimester in DM1 pregnant women in one study which could be ascribed to growth-promoting factors of pregnancy and potential rejuvenation of the pancreatic islets [32]. This observation together with a transient improvement of insulin sensitivity at this time could further explain the high risk for hypoglycemia in the first trimester in diabetic women.
