Abstract

Diabetes mellitus is an old disease, mentioned in ancient and medieval sources (Barach 1928)—though the validity of even that contention is disputed nowadays (Bottazzo 1993). Despite this antiquity the first instance of pregnancy in a woman with diabetes was only recorded less than 200 years ago (Bennewitz 1824). Which in fact may not have been an instance of the type of the disease this work is mainly concerned with (Hadden and Hillebrand 1989). So you see we have already encountered some doubts.
