It has been demonstrated that adverse environmental factors in prenatal period can disrupt the normal pattern of fetal growth and development, leading to a phenotype more susceptible to diseases, such as hypertension, glucose intolerance, insulin resistance, hyperlipidemia, hyperinsulinemia, obesity, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, in adulthood. In fact, failure of the maternal-p...

Food restriction during gestation may prejudice the fetal growth and exposes the fetus to high maternal glucocorticoid concentrations, which may alters the development and program different disorders that present in adult life. Although data in literature showing the relashionship between maternal glucocorticoids exposure and dysregulation of HPA axis, with consequent hypercorticosterol...
Undernourishment during pregnancy may affect fetal development and impair the maturation of the immune system, exerting prolonged negative effect on the immune response. Although these adaptations are beneficial in the short term, the permanent changes they cause can lead to adulthood diseases such as hypertension, glucose intolerance, insulin resistance, hyperlipidemia, hyperinsulinemi...
