Abstract: We examined cross-sectional associations of sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) with glucose among women recent GDM (n=55). SHBG was associated with fasting glucose levels before and after adjustment for covariates (p=0.015), but not with 2-h glucose. We conclude SHBG should be explored in prospective studies in GDM women.
