Description:
Diabetes mellitus is a significant health problem in Ireland. The number of people aff ected by diabetes in Ireland is increasing. It is estimated that at least 141,000 adults in the Republic of Ireland (4.7%) have diabetes (diagnosed or undiagnosed) and this is expected to rise to 194,000 or 5.6 % of the population by 2015 – a 37% increase1. The increasing incidence of diabetes will have significant economic consequences. It is estimated that in excess of 10% of healthcare spending in Ireland is diabetes related and the costs of caring for the growing number of people with diabetes will increase by up to 25% by 2040.Protocols for the management of type 1 diabetes (Section 3) and type 2 diabetes (Section 4) in pregnancy in the critical areas of preconception, antenatal and postnatal care are provided in the guidelines below. Similar management protocols for the management of gestational diabetes are provided at the start Section 5. Key recommendations for care are highlighted in text boxes throughout the guidelines. These recommendations form the basis of an audit tool provided in Appendix 4. A table formatted guide providing guidance of care per trimester is provided in both the management of type 1 diabetes (Section 3) and type 2 diabetes (Section 4) in pregnancy. Desk top guides for the management of pre-existing diabetes in pregnancy and the management of gestational diabetes are provided in Appendix 3. A glossary of terms and definitions can be found in Appendix 1.
