Abstract

A gap currently exists between our expectations of tight blood glucose control and the reality of safely achieving it before and during pregnancy. Technological and pharmaceutical advances will not in isolation prevent poor pregnancy outcomes without recognising the social, cultural and behavioural context of the women living with diabetes. Neither will behavioural and/or educational programmes completely overcome the fundamentally disordered metabolic pathways and physiological challenges of pregnancy. Improved integration of the technological, behavioural and educational aspects of diabetes care will pave the way for truly personalized, interdisciplinary diabetes management and ultimately improved pregnancy outcomes for women with diabetes and their infants.
