Home monitoring of blood glucose in diabetic pregnancy

Home monitoring of blood glucose in diabetic pregnancy

New Zealand Medical Journal 94(696): 371-373

A retrospective analysis was made of medical records of pregnant women who attended Christchurch Woman's Hospital, New Zealand, from 1976 to 1980. Of 20 with previously diagnosed insulin-dependent diabetes, 8 had used home blood glucose meters during pregnancy. The meter users spent on average 23.9 fewer days in hospital and attended on average 4.2 more antenatal clinics. Otherwise, management and outcome were equivalent.
