Objective: This study was done to evaluate morbidity and mortality pattern amongst infant of diabetic mothers (IDMs). Material Methods: This study was conducted Prospectively at G. B. Pant Children hospital Srinagar between June 2014 to January 2015 which is tertiary care hospital and is associated hospital of Government Medical College Srinagar India. Data on delivery mode, Gestational age, birth weight, other associated morbidities, investigation results, treatment, duration of hospital stay… 

Study on Infants of Diabetic Mothers in Neonatal Intensive Care Unit of Misurata Teaching Hospital –Libya/2015

Macrosomia, preterm birth, congenital anomalies, CHD, RDS, TTN, hypoglycemia, hypocalcaemia and hyperbillirubinaemia are significant complications among IDMs.

The Impact Of Maternal Diabetes On Newborns Admitted To Neonatal Care Unit Of Maternity And Children Teaching Hospital in Al-Diwaniya city

There is higher frequency of morbidity and mortality amongst IDM, hence a good glycemic control to diabetic mother and providing optimal neonatal care is valuable to decrease these complications.

Clinical audit on Management of Infants of Diabetic Mothers in Neonatal Intensive Care Unit Assiut University Children Hospital

Close liaison with obstetricians in care of diabetic mothers particularly with monthly measurement of HbA1c during pregnancy and during labor with good adjustment and control of the maternal level of blood glucose is recommended.

Neonatal Morbidity Among Infants of Diabetic Mothers

Delivery before 37 weeks increased the incidence of RDS and hypocalcemia, and it is suggested that, when strict metabolic control is used and with the help of facilities to monitor the fetus closely in the last weeks of pregnancy, the number of infants delivered at this early date can be further reduced.

Neonatal morbidity following control of maternal diabetes with human insulin

Morbidity in this series was higher than in the general population despite strict control of diabetes with human insulin, and prematurity, low birth weight and cardiomyopathy were significantly higher in pregestational diabetes.

Identification and Treatment of Women with Hyperglycaemia Diagnosed During Pregnancy Can Significantly Reduce Perinatal Mortality Rates *

It is concluded that identification and treatment of women with gestational diabetes can reduce perinatal mortality rates, similar to diabetes mellitus in the total population.

Birth weight of women with gestational diabetes.

The data suggest that women with GDM are either not a good surrogate for investigating the relationship between birth weight and type 2 diabetes or that correction for the gestational age of delivery removes the most important confounding variable.

Gestational Diabetes Mellitus: A Survey of Perinatal Complications in the 1980s

Although GDM patients were stringently managed with diet or diet plus insulin, as indicated, and maintained almost euglycemic values, these neonatal complications could not be eliminated and may be consistent with observations published during the last decade that even subtle degrees of maternal hyperglycemia can have a detrimental effect on perinatal outcome.

The Toronto Tri-Hospital Gestational Diabetes Project. A preliminary review.

Increasing maternal carbohydrate intolerance in pregnant women without GDM is associated with a graded increase in adverse maternal and fetal outcomes and more efficient screening strategies for detection of GDM are established.
