Abstract

Carbohydrate metabolism was evaluated in 21 twin pregnancies and in 21 women with singleton pregnancies. The groups were matched for age, weight, parity, and period of gestation. A 100-g oral glucose tolerance test was performed on all 42 subjects. No significant differences in venous plasma glucose responses were found between singleton and twin pregnancies. The only significant difference between the insulin responses of the two groups was a lower plasma insulin concentration at 60 min in the twin group (P < 0.03).
