Abstract

Despite marked declines in neonatal mortality, infants of diabetic mothers still experience significant morbidity. This article reviews current data regarding congenital malformations, disorders of fetal growth, pulmonary development, and diagnosis and treatment of hypoglycemia, hypocalcemia, and hypomagnesemia. It also addresses short-term and long-term complications for this unique group of high-risk infants.
