NICE diabetes in pregnancy guideline
An up-to-date summary of NICE guidance on diabetes management in pregnancy. Includes gestational diabetes, preconception, antenatal, and postnatal care.
Diabetes during pregnancy is associated with an increased risk of complications, such as miscarriage, pre-eclampsia, and preterm labour. Treatment to control maternal blood glucose before conception and during pregnancy is crucial in reducing the likelihood of perinatal morbidity and diabetic complications.
This Guidelines for Nurses summary covers patient education, contraception, and blood glucose control.
