Abstract: BACKGROUND: Maternal, cord blood and childhood adipokines have been associated with childhood obesity. We investigated whether postpartum maternal adipokines are associated with increased weight at 1 year of age in children of women with gestational diabetes (GDM). METHODS: Plasma leptin and adiponectin concentrations were measured in 160 women at approximately 12 weeks following pregnancy with GDM and compared to infant weight for length z-score at 1 year of age after adjustment for maternal and infant demographic variables. RESULTS: No association was demonstrated between maternal postpartum leptin and adiponectin concentrations and infant weight for length z-score at 1 year of age
