Poor Prepregnancy Cardiometabolic Health Common In the U.S.

Prepregnancy Cardiometabolic Health: As per a report for 3 consecutive years between 2016-2019, less than half people with live births had to deal with favorable prepregnancy cardiometabolic health.


As per a report published on healthday.com, the prevalence of favorable prepregnancy cardiometabolic health among US citizens with live birth declined between years 2016 to 2019. The above report was originally published in the February 15 issue of Circulation.

Natalie A. Cameron, who’s a renowned researcher from the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago was among the team who conducted serial cross-sectional analysis of maternal birth records from all live births in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Natality Database from 2016 to 2019.

The team later calculated some other data including the age standardized and age specific prevalence of favorable cardiometabolic health among 14,174,625 individuals who had live birth falling in the age bracket of 20 to 44 years.

The team of researches later came to know that between 2016 and 2019, there was a clear decline in the prevalence of favorable cardiometabolic health. They later observed that during each five-year age stratum, the prevalence of cardiometabolic health declined.

And this decline was also observed in almost all states and regions having quite a significant geographical variation between them. For example, it was found to have been lower in the South and Midwest versus the West and Northeast.

This is what a coauthor stated in his statement while answering queries, “In addition to optimizing health for those interested in becoming pregnant, it’s important to focus on optimizing cardiovascular health throughout young adulthood because nearly half of pregnancies are unplanned, he said.
