n Obstetrics and Gynaecology Forum - Am I too sweet for my unborn baby? : review

Volume 24, Issue 4
  • ISSN : 1027-9148



In the last decade there have been numerous excellent randomised trials published showing the relationship between mild hyperglycaemia and adverse events for both mother and baby. It is now obvious that mothers can be "too sweet" for their unborn babies. In this review available evidence will be explored to demonstrate that if mild hyperglycaemia is identified and treated adverse events can be reduced. It is suggested that the new WHO classification should be used as baseline for management, but that health services that are less well-resourced could introduce more cost-effective strategies.
