Babies of women with diabetes are nearly five times more likely to be stillborn; are almost three times more likely to die in the first three months; and twice as many are born with major congenital malformations. The incidence is high―somewhere between 3 and 7 per cent of all pregnant women in the USA have diabetes―and rising; the condition is often complicated by other risk-factors such as obesity and heart disease. This major book gives a comprehensive review of the epidemiology, science and clinical management of gestation diabetes.

Fully updated and revised, it contains new chapters on:

  • Fetal growth in normal and diabetic pregnancies
  • Genetics
  • Congenital anomalies
  • Exercise
  • Pharmacological management
  • Insulin pump therapy
  • Hypoglycemia
  • The role of ultrasound for timing of delivery
  • Thyroid and pregnancy
  • Fetal origins of adult disease
  • Metabolic syndrome and diabetes following gestational diabetes mellitus
  • Psychological and social aspects

The book provides a comprehensive, authoritative, international view of these difficult pregnancies and will be invaluable to maternal-fetal medicine specialists, diabetologists, neonatologists, and basic scientists working in the field.
