Author(s): Hultquist,Gösta T; Olding,Lars B Title(s): Endocrine pathology of infants of diabetic mothers: a quantitative morphological analysis including a comparison with infants of iso-immunized and non-diabetic mothers/ by Gösta T. Hultquist and Lars B. Olding. Infants of diabetic mothers are at risk of other complica-tions as well, including low calcium levels, heart problems, and certain birth defects. Treatment to keep diabetes under control during pregnancy can greatly reduce the risk of harmful effects for mother and baby alike. What kinds of problems can occur? Appearance. Infants of diabetic. Endocrine Pathophysiology offers a comprehensive introduction to diseases of the endocrine system. Rather than providing an overwhelming amount of content on one subject, this book serves as a bridge between basic endocrine physiology and endocrine disorders/5(8). Infants of Diabetic Mothers (IDMs) BACKGROUND AND PATHOPHYSIOLOGY: With insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, maternal hyperglycemia, hypoglycemia and ketosis can occur during fetal organogenesis, and there is increased incidence of fetal anomalies.

To understand the pathological lesions found in disorders of the endocrine system of the fetus and neonate it is necessary (ed) () Endocrine pathology. Williams and Wilkins, Baltimore, p.

The newborn brain depends upon glucose almost exclusively. Up to 90% of total glucose used is consumed by the brain. Alternate fuels (e.g., ketones, lactate) are produced in very low quantities. The usual rate of glucose utilization.
