Optimal glycemic control is pivotal to the successful outcome of diabetic pregnancy. The goals for glycemic control include levels for preprandial and postprandial glucose and HbA1c as well as avoidance of severe hypoglycemia. These goals are best obtained with diet, exercise, and insulin treatment, often a multiple-dose insulin regimen or insulin pump. A focus on blood pressure, microalbuminuria, diabetic nephropathy, and diabetic retinopathy is needed.
