Guideline Development Group, NICE and Mugglestone, M. (2008) Management of diabetes from preconception to the postnatal period: summary of NICE guidance. BMJ, 336 (7646). pp. 714-717.
Diabetes in pregnancy is associated with risks to the woman (for example, higher rates of miscarriage, preeclampsia, and preterm labour) and to the developing fetus and baby (for example, higher rates of congenital malformations, macrosomia, birth injury, and perinatal mortality).
This article summarises the most recent guidance from the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) on how to manage diabetes and its complications from preconception to the postnatal period.
