Description

Diabetes mellitus is one of the most common medical disorders found in pregnancy with an occurrence rate of about 2% to 3%. Approximately 90% of these cases are gestational diabetes where the diagnosis was made during the pregnancy. Women who have diabetes mellitus prior to the onset of pregnancy are classified as having pre-gestational diabetes. Suboptimal treatment of this disease (gestational or pre-gestational diabetes) is associated with significant maternal, fetal, and neonatal morbidity and mortality. Therefore, tight control of blood sugar becomes a principal goal.

Diabetes is often categorized by the National Diabetes Data Group Classification, which is seen in Table I. Another classification system that may be utilized in pregnancy is White’s Classification, which is a letter system (seen in Table II). This letter system breaks diabetes down based on the severity and duration of the disease; however, many of the complications associated with diabetes in pregnancy can cross these boundaries.

Objectives

Upon completion of this course, the learner will be able to:
1. Discuss the different classifications of diabetes and the complications that may be seen in the pregnant diabetic, especially if poorly controlled.

2. Explain how blood sugar values are determined and how to prepare insulin for infusion.

3. Calculate the C/I (calorie to insulin) ratio and the initial intravenous insulin infusion rates for patients who are NPO.

4. Calculate the initial intravenous insulin infusion rates for those patients who are on an ADA diet or are being converted to a diet after being NPO.
