- During a five year period, informa tion was collected on fifty pregnant women with diabetes mellitus who had been referred to the Diabetes Education Program. Half were man aged in a high risk obstetrical clinic; half were managed by private physi cians.

Methods to achieve better control of diabetes are described; statistical data and outcomes of the two groups are presented and discussed.
