National pregnancy in diabetes audit report 2014

Reports | Published: 18 Nov 2015

Three out of four (74%) pregnant women with diabetes have higher than recommended blood sugar levels in early pregnancy, new findings from the National pregnancy in diabetes audit report 2015.

The audit’s lead clinician, Dr Nick Lewis-Barned, is now calling for local diabetes teams, general practices and maternity services to work together to help increase awareness among women with diabetes that high blood glucose levels and a lack of preparation for pregnancy can increase the risk of adverse pregnancy outcomes. Such outcomes include stillbirths, neonatal deaths, and babies born with congenital abnormalities.
