Abstract

Improving diabetic pregnancy outcome is a goal shared by many involved specialists. Despite proper glucose control, the incidence of maternal and perinatal complications is very high, including a high risk for pre-eclampsia, congenital malformations, perinatal mortality and macrosomia. To improve outcome, not only collaborating in the doctor's office is required but also participation in critical evaluation of our treatment strategies by means of randomised clinical trials.
