Abstract

In this retrospective study, pregnant women with type 1 diabetes under the care of diabetes specialists pre-conception were found to have better glycaemic control and pregnancy outcomes than those not under specialist care prior to pregnancy. These differences were not seen in women with type 2 diabetes. The study showed that tight glycaemic control in women with pre-existing diabetes was associated with better pregnancy outcomes, and we believe women with type 1 diabetes should be managed by a diabetes specialist before pregnancy.
