Discribe type 1 Diabetes Mellitus.(3)
- 1) Primarily caused by pancreatic islet beta cell destruction
- 2) Prone to ketoacidosis due to absolute insulin deficiency
- 3) Insulin is needed for cellular glucose uptake
These discribe what type of Diabetes Mellitus?
Discribe type 2 Diabetes Mellitus.
- Characterized by insulin resistance usually relative (rather than absolute) insulin deficiency
- •Peripheral cell insulin resistance
- •Overproduction of hepatic glucose
- Beta cell defect leading to insufficient insulin
This is a discription of what type of Diabetes Mellitus?
How does the placenta factor in with Diabetes Mellitus?
Glucose crosses the placentss - insulin does not.
What happens to insulin need during the 1st trimester?
Insulin needs drop during the ____ trimester

The fetus begins secreting ____ around 10 weeks gestation.
What are some maternal risks and complications with Diabetes Mellitus during pregnancy?(6)
- 1) Increased risk for miscarriage if poorly controlled glucose around time of conception
- •No increased risk if good glycemic control
- 2) Fetal macrosomia and sequelae

- 4) Polyhydramnios (excess amnionic fluid)
- 5) Ketoacidosis (if Type 1) – 2nd and 3rd trimester

- 6) Hypoglycemia
These are all maternal risks and complications with ______ ______ during pregnancy
What are some fetal and neaonatal risk and complications associated with Diabetes Mellitus.(5)
- 1) Stillbirth (possibly because of chronic intrauterine hypoxia)
- 2) Congenital malformations (CV, CNS, skeleal system)
- 3) Macrosomia (large baby) and sequelae
- 4) Postpartum hypoglycemia
- 5) Delayed lung maturation
These are all fetal and neaonatal risk and complications associated with what disorder durng pregnansy?
How does Diabetes Mellitus lead to postpartum hypoglycemia in neonates?
The baby is putting out lots of insulin to combat moms hyperglycemia. When they are born they are still producing high levels of insulin but the glucose input from mom is gone. These leads to what in neonates of mothers with Diabetes Mellitus.
