Objective To determine how the frequency, timing, and magnitude of hyperglycemia are associated with large-for-gestational-age (LGA) infants in pregnancies complicated by type 1 diabetes.
Methods Charts from pregnant women with type 1 diabetes (n=70) were reviewed. Indices of maternal glycemic control were determined for seven gestational periods (weeks 7-10, 11-15, 16-19, 20-24, 25-28, 29-32, and 33-38) and compared between women who delivered LGA infants and appropriate-for-gestational-age (AGA) infants. more
