Background & Objective: Diabetes Mellitus refers to a group of specific metabolic diseases with a hyperglycemic phenotype. The present study compares pregnancy outcomes and nonstress tests (NST) in insulin-treated diabetic women with healthy pregnant women.
Materials & Methods: In this cross-sectional study, pregnancy outcomes and NST results were evaluated in 45 diabetic pregnant women who had received insulin therapy and 90 healthy pregnant women. The NST tracings of all women were applied and evaluated regarding reactive and non-reactive parameters. Data were analyzed using SPSS software version 20 and Fisher's exact test.
Results: Our results demonstrated that NST was reactive in 75.6%and was non-reactive in 24.4% of diabetic mothers. There was a significant increase in macrosomia in diabetic mothers with non-reactive NST, while there was no statistical significance between NST results in the two groups.
Conclusion: Pregnant women with diabetes are more prone to complications than healthy women. The main complication is the fetal size which leads to difficulties in delivery and increased incidence of cesarean section.
