Preexisting diabetes complicates 0.9% of pregnancies in the US and increases the risk of adverse maternal and neonatal outcomes, specifically linked to preeclampsia, congenital anomalies, preterm delivery, and stillbirth. With type 1 and type 2 diabetes becoming more common, clinicians need to review planning and optimization of glycemic control with patients before pregnancy to mitigate the risk associated with diabetes.
