Diabetes is the most common medical complication of pregnancy. Gestational diabetes occurs when a woman develops high blood sugar during pregnancy.
The Pregnancy Diabetes Clinic combines the services of dietetics and nutrition, nurse education, and physician experience. When patients are referred, they will have the opportunity to visit with certified diabetes educators, a dietitian and our maternal-fetal medicine specialist at the same time in the same place. Care will be coordinated for the benefit of the patient.
If patients are referred for assistance with diabetes, they will still continue to see their primary obstetrician or family physician for obstetric care and delivery.
Appropriate patients for referral include:
- Non-pregnant patients with diabetes considering pregnancy, for pre-pregnancy counseling
- Pregnant patients with diabetes, whether Type I or Type II
- Newly diagnosed patients with gestational diabetes
