Abstract

The 24-hour fluctuation of blood glucose levels was examined 15 times in 10 insulin-treated diabetics of the juvenile type by continuous blood glucose monitoring in different stages of their pregnancy. The method is an aid in detecting latent short hypo- and hyperglycaemias. Its repeated use, supplementing other control examinations, helps in obtaining an optimal control of the carbohydrate metabolism. Monitoring of a low blood glucose level considered adequate in the last trimester of pregnancy, frequent insulin administration and an adequate distribution of carbohydrate intake can be conveniently followed by this procedure.
