Abstract

Diabetes mellitus is a complex problem in pregnancy with significant maternal and neonatal morbidity. Strict maintenance of euglycemia during the peripartum period is crucial. Careful planning of anesthetic management with appropriate choice of anesthetic agents and drugs and an impeccable anesthetic technique are essential. More importantly, the management of the diabetic parturient is a team effort involving the anesthesiologist and the obstetrician to ensure the safe delivery of the infant without compromising the well-being of the mother.
