Type 1 diabetes is a serious and common disease, afflicting one per 200 of the population worldwide. It is widely believed to cause harmful physical maldevelopment--congenital malformations--and other consequences in the unborn children of women with the disease. This book considers the history of the disease in pregnant women and this belief that it causes anomalies since the time of the discovery of insulin in 1921, and presents a profound and critical appraisal of the subject of its supposed prenatal harmfulness.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"Describes the impact of maternal diabetes on pregnancy malformations and adverse outcomes using a linear narrative. ... audience includes those with an interest in endocrinology and those whose obstetrical practices include diabetic patients. Residents and above would appreciate it. ... a comprehensive, historical overview of how we have implicated this disease in adverse pregnancy outcomes. Strengths of the book include the thoroughness of the studies it evaluates, as well as the evaluation of the different study methods that brought us to where we are today." (Anthony Shanks, Doody's Review Service, February, 2012)
