Abstract

This study assesses the impact of pregnancy and pre-pregnancy care on longer-term treatment goals in women with diabetes. This retrospective study included women with Type 1 (n = 247) and Type 2 diabetes (n = 137) who were evaluated before, during and after pregnancy. Among women with Type 1 diabetes, average HbA1c at 12 months post-partum was similar to the preconception level [63 vs. 64 mmol/mol (7.9% vs. 8.0%), P = 0.60]. This was also the case for women with Type 2 diabetes [52 vs. 52 mmol/mol (6.9% vs. 6.9%), P = 0.79]. At 12 months post-partum, there was no improvement in other measures of diabetes control and one in five women are lost to follow-up from clinical care. In total, 44.9% of women with Type 1 diabetes and 27.7% of those with Type 2 diabetes attended pre-pregnancy care. Attendees maintained superior glycaemic control throughout the study and were more likely to be receiving specialist care post-partum. These findings identify a need to change our approach to the reproductive care of women with diabetes. In particular, efforts should be made to ensure all women have access to and attend pre-pregnancy care, and barriers to engagement with post-partum care should be addressed.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 7. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 13 May 2017.
All research outputs
#2,347,510
of 13,559,548 outputs
Outputs from Diabetic Medicine
#506
of 2,504 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#65,064
of 256,502 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Diabetic Medicine
#9
of 43 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,559,548 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 82nd percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 2,504 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 6.5. This one has done well, scoring higher than 79% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 256,502 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 74% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 43 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 79% of its contemporaries.
