Description

Part I of this series reviewed diabetes in pregnancy and the potential ramifications of poor glucose control. In addition, it discussed how to monitor diabetic patients and manage them by insulin infusion when they are admitted to the hospital. This section will discuss subcutaneous therapy, how to detect and manage hypoglycemic reactions, and will cover special circumstances that may arise when these patients receive other drugs that can affect glucose control.

Objectives

Upon completion of this course, the learner will be able to:
1. Calculate the conversion of intravenous insulin infusion therapy to subcutaneous insulin doses.

2. Discuss the outpatient control of the pregnant diabetic and which insulin dose and blood sugar value is associated to a given meal.

3. Describe the effect that corticosteroid drugs or beta-sympathomimetic agents have on blood sugar control.

4. Discuss hypoglycemic reactions and the various methods by which this problem can be managed if and when it occurs.
