Preconception Care For Women With Iddm

160

A study to determine the cost benefit of preconception (before pregnancy) care in addition to prenatal (during pregnancy, before birth) care for women with insulin dependent diabetes found that the cost of preconception care is more expensive at the outset ($17,519 per delivery, versus $13,843 per delivery).

However, in the long run, it saves money ($1720 per delivery) by preventing adverse post-natal complications (Diabetes Care, August, 1993).
