Information on Pregnancy and HNF4A Diabetes


HNF4A diabetes in either parent can impact on pregnancy and this leaflet aims to provide information for individuals with HNF4A diabetes and their health care professionals. It may be printed and copies given to families and professionals e.g. midwives, diabetes consultants, obstetric consultants, GPs and added to the patient’s hospital notes.  It is important to emphasise that complications from pregnancy in patients with HNF4A diabetes are unusual and this guidance aims to increase awareness of the potential issues.
