A new study published in the American Journal of Epidemiology (AJE) states that increased egg consumption is linked to a higher risk of gestational diabetes, or diabetes during pregnancy. Analyzing two studies, the Omega Cohort Study and the Alpha Case-Control Study, researchers found that women who consumed a large amount of eggs, seven or more per week, had a 77-percent higher chance of contracting gestational diabetes in the Omega study and 165-percent increased risk in the Alpha study, compared to women who consumed the least amount. The AJE study also found that the odds rose with a higher cholesterol intake.
