Diabetes is a frequent complication of pregnancy. Type 1 diabetes is associated with an increased incidence of preeclampsia and pregnancy-induced hypertension. When renal dysfunction is present, the incidence of these complications is remarkably increased. White's class, poor glycemic control during the first half of pregnancy, and early blood pressure elevation are also independent risk factors for developing preeclampsia. Whether gestational diabetes increases the background incidence of… Expand
Managing type 1 diabetes mellitus in pregnancy—from planning to breastfeeding
TLDR
Careful preconception counselling and screening is important, with particular focus on glycaemic control, indications for antihypertensive therapy, screening for diabetic nephropathy, diabetic retinopathy and thyroid dysfunction, as well as review of other medications. Expand
Therapeutic management of type 1 diabetes before and during pregnancy
TLDR
Evidence is presented discussing the importance of prepregnancy counseling and treatment during pregnancy in women with type 1 diabetes and indications for antihypertensive treatment and treatment of thyroid dysfunction need to be in focus before and during pregnancy. Expand

TLDR
A focus on blood pressure, microalbuminuria, diabetic nephropathy, and diabetic retinopathy is needed for optimal glycemic control in diabetic pregnancy. Expand

Cerebral hemodynamics in normal and complicated pregnancy
TLDR
The thesis shows that examination of the brain vessels may be used as a screening tool to identify those women who are at risk for developing preeclampsia, and shows that the cerebral autoregulation improves when a women is pregnant, but is worsened in pregnant women with preeclampia or chronic hypertension.

TLDR
Pregnancy per se does not appear to worsen the natural progression to end-stage renal disease for most women with renal insufficiency, however, patients with moderate to severe renal impairment may experience acceleration of renal disease. Expand

TLDR
It is speculated that improved glycemic control throughout pregnancy might reduce the rate of this complication in diabetic patients. Expand

TLDR
In women with pregravid Type 1 diabetes, the rates of preeclampsia and adverse neonatal outcome increase with increased severity of diabetes, and low-dose aspirin does not reduce rate of preeClampsia in such women. Expand

TLDR
It is concluded that gestational diabetics do not develop pregnancy-induced hypertension more frequently, and small increases in blood pressure late in pregnancy in these patients achieve statistical significance, but their clinical relevance is unclear. Expand

Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is defined as glucose intolerance of various degrees that is first detected during pregnancy and provides a unique opportunity to study the early pathogenesis of diabetes and to develop interventions to prevent the disease. Expand
