Pregnancy outcomes in women with childhood-onset type 1 diabetes are commonly poor, and a new biomarker could help predict which women may develop preeclampsia, according to two studies presented at the European Association for the Study of Diabetes Annual Meeting. In the first study, Chris Watson, PhD, of the Centre for Experimental Medicine at Queen’s University Belfast in the United Kingdom, and colleagues evaluated data from the MAMPED cohort on 62 pregnant women with type 1 diabetes who did (n = 23) or did not (n = 21) develop preeclampsia and 18 healthy controls. Participants with diabetes were matched for age, disease duration, HbA1c levels and parity.
