The International Association of Diabetes and Pregnancy Study Groups (IADPSG) proposed that a one-time value of fasting plasma glucose of 5.1 mmol/l or over at any time of the pregnancy is sufficient to diagnose gestational diabetes. We evaluated the repercussions of the application of this threshold in pregnant Han Chinese women.


This is a retrospective study of 5360 (72.3% of total) consecutively recruited pregnant Han Chinese women in one centre from 2008 to 2011. These women underwent a two-step gestational diabetes diagnostic protocol according to the previous American Diabetes Association criteria. The IADPSG fasting plasma glucose criterion was used to reclassify these 5360 women. The prevalence, clinical characteristics and obstetric outcomes were compared among the women classified as having gestational diabetes by the previous American Diabetes Association criteria (approximately 90% were treated), those reclassified as having gestational diabetes by the single IADPSG fasting plasma glucose criterion (untreated), but not as having gestational diabetes by the previous American Diabetes Association criteria, and those with normal glucose tolerance.


There were 626 cases of gestational diabetes defined by the previous American Diabetes Association criteria (11.7%) and these cases were associated with increased risks of maternal and neonatal outcomes when compared with the women with normal glucose tolerance. With the IADPSG fasting plasma glucose criterion, another 1314 (24.5%) women were reclassified as having gestational diabetes. Gestational diabetes classified by the IADPSG fasting plasma glucose criterion was associated with gestational hypertension (P = 0.0094) and neonatal admission to nursery (= 0.035) prior to adjustment for maternal age and BMI, but was no longer a predictor for adverse pregnancy outcomes after adjustment.


The simple IADPSG fasting plasma glucose criterion increased the Chinese population with gestational diabetes by 200%. The increased population with gestational diabetes was not significantly associated with excess obstetric and neonatal morbidity.

  In this study, we investigate the quantitative correlation between human factors and the shooting accuracy of the T75 assault pistol. We carry out live pistol firing. Eleven shooters are selected to fire 30 rounds each. We obtain 330 data successfully. Interest factors are assigned to three human factors, whereas performance evaluation methods are assigned to three parameters of impact points; these experiment datasets are measured using an I-CubeX glove force sensor system. Three prediction models (for shooting score, shooting precision and shooting trueness) are established by using a Least Squares Support Vector Machine (LS-SVM), Back-Propagation Neural Network (BPNN) and Response Surface Methodology (RSM); the results of present study indicate that the model developed by using an LS-SVM exhibits excellent prediction ability. The force of the shooter’s right index finger abdomen for pulling the pistol trigger and the force of the shooter’s left palm for gripping the pistol significantly influence shooting performance. An inexperienced shooter can use the results of this study as a reference for improving his or her shooting skills. Furthermore, this study will greatly assist efforts to upgrade pistol design and performance.
