Table 3 Significant correlations between selected variables and AASI during pregnancy and after delivery

From: Need for insulin to control gestational diabetes is reflected in the ambulatory arterial stiffness index

  AASI During pregnancy (N=84) AASI After delivery (N=58)
Systolic BP whole 24 h during pregnancy r = 0.247* r = 0.212
Systolic BP night-time during pregnancy r = 0.286** r = 0.244
Diastolic BP night-time during pregnancy r = 0.215* r = 0.204
Systolic BP whole 24h 3 months after delivery r = 0.225 r = 0.341*
Diastolic BP whole 24h 3 months after delivery r = 0.032 r = 0.280*
Systolic BP night-time 3 months after delivery r = 0.227 r = 0.410**
Diastolic BP night-time 3 months after delivery r = 0.045 r = 0.395**
BMI before pregnancy r = 0.248* r = 0.078
Woman’s age r = 0.245* r = 0.246
Nocturnal diastolic dipping during pregnancy r = -0.386** r = -0.317*
Nocturnal systolic dipping 3 months after delivery r = -0.077 r = -0.344*
