Summary

This trial will help researchers understand if lifestyle intervention before pregnancy can improve maternal and neonatal metabolism and adiposity.

Who is the study for?
The LIPP trial is for women aged 18-40 who plan to get pregnant in the next 24 months, have had a full-term pregnancy before, and are planning to deliver at Tufts Medical Center. They should be using contraception, have normal glucose tolerance or managed gestational diabetes without postpartum diabetes, no severe diseases that affect exercise ability, normal blood pressure and thyroid function, and acceptable blood lipid levels.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
This study tests whether starting a lifestyle intervention before getting pregnant can improve mothers' metabolism and reduce fat in both the mother and baby. The goal is to see if this approach can break the cycle of obesity by improving how the body uses fats during pregnancy.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Since this trial involves lifestyle interventions like diet changes and exercise rather than medication, side effects may include typical responses to new physical activities such as muscle soreness or fatigue. Diet changes might cause digestive adjustments.
