Diabetes Standards of Care and Resources for Clinicians and Educators

Preconception, Pregnancy, and Postpartum Diabetes Testing and Care

As diabetes incidence has increased in younger American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) people, both pregestational diabetes (PGDM) and gestational diabetes (GDM) have also increased significantly. Hyperglycemia during pregnancy can be associated with morbidity and mortality for both the mother and her infant. Therefore, management of diabetes in pregnancy offers a unique opportunity to affect both patients’ health positively. Currently, women with diabetes and good glycemic control can look forward to pregnancy outcomes that are comparable to that of the general population.
