- Change in beta cell function [ Time Frame: baseline and 3 months after intervention ]Beta cell function will be assessed by calculating the Insulin Secretion Sensitivity Index-2, a ratio of the area under the curve (AUC) for glucose and the AUC for insulin after an oral glucose tolerance test.
- recruitment rates [ Time Frame: recruitment rates will be followed throughout the recruitment phase, which is expected to take 2 years maximum ]
- treatment adherence [ Time Frame: 3 months after intervention ]
- Change in insulin sensitivity [ Time Frame: baseline and 3 months after intervention ]Insulin sensitivity will be assessed by calculating the homeostasis model of assessment of insulin resistance (HOMA-IR).
- change in liver function [ Time Frame: baseline and 3 months after intervention ]liver function will be assessed by measuring plasma concentrations of alanine aminotransferase, aspartate aminotransferase, gamma glutamyltransferase, total bilirubin and conjugated bilirubin.
- change in C-reactive protein [ Time Frame: baseline and 3 months after intervention ]
- change in glycated hemoglobin [ Time Frame: baseline and 3 months after intervention ]
- change in serum lipids [ Time Frame: baseline and 3 months after intervention ]
- change in plasma levels of resveratrol and resveratrol metabolites [ Time Frame: baseline and 3 months after intervention ]

Our primary aim is to perform a randomized controlled trial of resveratrol for the improvement of insulin sensitivity and the preservation of beta cell function in post-partum women following a first diagnosis of gestational diabetes. Our long-term goal is to test resveratrol for the secondary prevention of gestational diabetes and type 2 diabetes. We have developed six conditions that should be satisfied by the study to justify project expansion. Therefore, we will be testing hypotheses and computing estimates for the following six outcomes: (1) recruitment numbers, (2) adherence to study treatment, (3) adherence to study visits, (4) insulin sensitivity measured at 12 months post-partum, (5) beta cell function measured at 12 months post-partum, and (6) adverse events.
The study is a single-site, parallel, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trial. The study population consists of women recruited during pregnancy who had a confirmed first diagnosis of gestational diabetes, who do not have either diabetes or pre-diabetes when re-tested 3 months post-partum, and who have stopped breastfeeding by 9 months post-partum. They study intervention is resveratrol (or identical placebo) twice daily for a total of 12 weeks from 9 months to 12 months post-partum. Our planned sample size is 112 women based on the hypothesis testing and estimation considerations for the six above-mentioned outcomes.
