The care of pregnant women with diabetes can be challenging for both patient and clinician. Via a case of pregnancy in a woman with pre-existing type 2 diabetes mellitus, this case highlights the key areas in the management of such pregnancies, particularly the importance of pre-conceptual counselling, screening for pregnancy and diabetes-related complications, and optimal glycaemic control. This is illustrated by key findings from the Hyperglycaemia and Adverse Pregnancy Outcome [HAPO] Study and the Australian Carbohydrate Intolerance Study in Pregnant Women (ACHOIS) trial.
