Oded Langer, MD, PhD, Q2: What Diabetes Drugs Can Be Used by Pregnant Women with Diabetes?

Dr. Langer discusses the difficult challenges of researching and introducing new diabetes drugs for pregnant women with either GDM or type 2, including how to determine if a drug can cross the placenta from mother to fetus (giving us some examples), and the importance of monitoring children for potential long-term effects. He also emphasizes the increasing importance of preventive strategies in the U.S. and the narrow but critical window for effective treatment of pregnant women with diabetes.
