Abstract: Objective: To identify co-variables potentially associated to infant macrosomia, including excessive gestational weight gain.Methods: A cohort was investigated consisting of 230 pairs of mothers and children, residents of the City of Rio de Janeiro. Fetal macrosomia, defined as a birth weight > 4,000 grams was treated as the dependent variable. Statistical analysis of the relation between macrosomia and co-variables involved stratified analysis and multivariate logistic regression, which estimates odds ratios … Show more

“…An association between macrosomia and pregestational overweight/obese women was observed in studies from the Northeast and Southeast of Brazil 17 , 29 , 32 . In one of these studies, women with excessive GWG had a greater chance of having a macrosomic newborn 17 .…”

“…These recommendations must be followed to facilitate a comparison between studies and improve the methodological quality of observational studies. The least followed criteria were as follows: the study design did not appear in the title 18 ,, the sample size calculation was not specified (19,21,22,25,24,28,30-32) and there was no mention of financial support 17 , 18 , 22 , 24 , 25 , 26 , 29 , 31 , 32 .…”

“…Most of the studies on birth weight have investigated risk factors of either low or high birth weight [ 1 , 13 , 53 56 ] rather than analyzing birth weight as a continuous variable. In Africa and Ghana in particular, there appeared to be no study to the best of the authors’ knowledge analyzing birth weight as a continuous variable.…”

“…Macrosomia is defined as an absolute birth weight >4000 g regardless of gestational age ( Boulet et al, 2003 ; Costa et al, 2012 ). The incidence of macrosomia ranges from 12.8 to 37.4% worldwide ( Rodrigues et al, 2000 ; Kac and Velasquez-Melendez, 2005 ; de Oliveira et al, 2008 ) . In developed countries, the prevalence of macrosomia ranges from 5 to 20%; and an increase of 15–25% has been reported over the last three decades, mainly driven by an increase in maternal obesity and type 2 diabetes (T2DM).…”
