Abstract

Evidence supports the idea that it is the degree of metabolic imbalance present in diabetic gravid women during the period of organogenesis that accounts for organogenetic congenital defects. In light of the proved and inferred metabolic instability occurring during early pregnancy, we propose that metabolic imbalances may occur that result in organogenetic congenital defects in offspring of apparently normal gravid women.
