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

Introduction: This is a nursing research study to characterize the 24-hour activity and cardiometabolic risk profile for Chinese American women with a history of gestational diabetes [GD]. The purpose of this mixed method study is to describe the multi-contextual barriers and facilitators to meet current physical activity and sleep guidelines for the targeted population. Gestational diabetes is a type of diabetes that is diagnosed for the first time during pregnancy. Your cardiometabolic risk profile includes your blood sugar level,blood cholesterol or triglyceride levels, blood pressure, body fat percentage, and so on, together they influence your risk of heart disease, stroke, and diabetes.

简介:本项护理研究项目旨在解析有妊娠糖尿病 [GD] 病史的在美华人女性 24 小时身体活动和心血管代谢健康风险的概况。 这项混合方法研究的目的是描述上述女性在尝试达到“身体活动与睡眠指南”的标准时所遇到 的障碍和促进因素。 妊娠糖尿病是指在妊娠期被首次诊断出的一种糖尿病。您的心脏代谢风险概 况包括您的血糖水平、血胆固醇或甘油三酯水平、血压、体脂率等等,所有的这些因素共同影响 着您罹患心脏病、中风和糖尿病的风险。
