The article gives a scientific and practical justification for the expansion of the diagnostic algorithm in pregnant women with the threat of miscarriage, taking into account the woman’s phenotype.
The objective: was to study the basic patterns of the formation and disruption of the reproductive system in pregnant women with overweight and obesity and to evaluate possible criteria for the formation of endocrine and metabolic disorders for the timely diagnosis and prevention of perinatal complications in pregnant women, depending on their phenotype.
Materials and methods. Clinical groups comprised 175 pregnant women of different body weight (120 women with overweight and obesity, who were observed from a small gestation period on the basis of the department of fetal medicine and the pathology of early pregnancy of the communal institution «Dnepropetrovsk Regional Perinatal Center with a hospital» in the city of Dnepr (I clinical group) and 55 pregnant women with normal body weight (II clinical group – comparison group)).
Results. The dependence of the detection of menstrual cycle disorders in women with overweight and obesity is 1.5 times more often than in women with normal weight. The course of early gestation was analyzed. The necessity of lipid and carbohydrate profile estimation in these patients is substantiated. Authentic criteria of violations of carbohydrate metabolism are specified.
Сonclusion. It is necessary to move from the assessment of the effects of obesity to the «Body Mass Index-Oriented Approach» to the assessment based on the «complicity approach». This will make it possible to individualize therapeutic tactics in pregnant women depending on their phenotype and reduce the incidence of gestational complications and perinatal losses.
Key words: phenotype, pregnancy, loss of pregnancy, obesity, phenotype, carbohydrate profile, lipid profile, hormonal characteristics.
