Thyroid dysfunction and diabetic retinopathy during pregnancy, prevention of congenital malformations in infants of diabetic mothers, and the metabolic sequelae in these infants are explored, as are such controversial matters as the use of fetal pancreatic tissue for transplantation, of exercise during pregnancy, and of the oral hypoglycemic agents.
