Metabolic syndrome (MS) is a higly significant public health problem. Its prevalence throughout the world is growing steadily every year, and in some countries, it reaches a third of the adult population. Obesity is a major component of MS and a significant independent risk factor for developing many gestational complications. The study included 46 women aged 22 to 41 years. Studies began at 2-4 weeks of gestation and continued until delivery. The bioimpedance method using a body composition monitor “Omron BF-512”, Japan, was used to study the body\'s composition to determine of muscle and fat components, and the level of visceral fat. Biochemical studies included the determination of blood glucose, glucose tolerance, insulin, triglycerides, high and low-density lipoproteins by standard methods. A close relationship was found between the initial value of the fat component and the amount of weight gain during pregnancy. Of prime importance is the amount of weight gain during pregnancy.
