Purpose: To test the feasibility of a randomized controlled trial of an exercise intervention designed for American Indian women with gestational diabetes based on extensive community input. Theoretical framework: This research is based on the well documented physiologic effect of exercise on cellular blood glucose uptake and insulin sensitivity. Participants: 16-20 pregnant American Indian women with GDM and no other medical or obstetrical complications that preclude exercise will be recruited from partner community clinics and randomly assigned to an exercise intervention or a usual care control condition. Methodology: This is a feasibility study of an exercise RCT. All women will track physical activity throughout the 8-week study period. Those in the intervention will be asked to exercise twice weekly in a community fitness facility and three sessions at home using a DVD provided by the research team. Data will be collected on pre and post hemoglobin A1c, proportion of self monitored daily blood glucose levels in the normal range, and proportion of women requiring pharmacologic therapy. Data will also be collected regarding dietary intake, adherence to exercise intervention (frequency, duration, intensity) or control condition, and birth outcomes such as mode of birth, duration of labor, infant birth weight, Apgar score at 5 minutes, and admission to the NICU. Women will participate in a short interview related to their participation in the study following the 8 week study period. Anticipated data analysis: Differences in mean self monitored blood glucose and change in hemoglobin A1c from baseline to endpoint, will be compared between the two groups using two-sample t-test or Wilcoxon Rank-Sum test. Similar procedures will be used for examining differences in secondary outcomes. Data will contribute to development of a future larger trial.
