et al . 2005 ). It has been shown that the cognitive performance of offspring is severely affected by moderate-to-severe iodine deficiency in pregnant women. However, studies investigating the impacts of marginal iodine deficiency in pregnant women on

and the mechanisms integral to fetal development that prepare the offspring for controlling insulin secretion and action and glucose homeostasis after birth. We have shown that the baboon provides a superb nonhuman primate translational model for the

worldwide and is an important risk factor contributing to type 2 diabetes in offspring ( Wang & Lobstein 2006 , Samuelsson et al . 2008 , Gonzalez et al . 2013 , Latouche et al . 2014 ). Type 2 diabetes is polygenic and may involve polymorphisms in

( Vrtačnik et al . 2014 ). These mechanisms of epigenetics are important in regulating differentiation of different types of cells during both prenatal and postnatal development. Maternal nutrition appears to influence epigenetic alterations in the offspring

have demonstrated that PCE can lead to fetal overexposure to maternal glucocorticoids and hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis-associated neuroendocrine metabolic programming alterations, resulting in the increased susceptibility of adult offspring

Introduction Maternal obesity is associated with various endocrine and metabolic disorders in offspring, including obesity ( Paliy et al. 2014 ), hepatic steatosis ( Oben et al. 2010 , Mouralidarane et al. 2013 ), diabetes mellitus

Introduction Maternal stress can impair foetal growth and program offspring susceptibility to adult onset disease ( Cottrell & Seckl 2009 ). Stress-induced impairment of foetal development is mediated by elevated maternal glucocorticoids
