Abstract

Advancements in molecular technology coupled with a greater awareness of the human genome and epigenome have broadened our understanding of the genetic contributions to the diabetic pregnancy. There are multiple genes and pathways that can result in a hyperglycemic environment for the fetus. Exposure to this environment in utero has an impact on the risk of adult-onset chronic diseases. How identification of an individual's genetic variants will impact clinical care and outcomes will continue to evolve as our understanding grows.
