These disparities however, as already surmised, probably accounted for little of the increased perinatal death rate in diabetic pregnancies; and it may be concluded that any effect of advanced maternal age of diabetic women on perinatal survival was obscured by that of the diabetes itself. The Early Insulin Era The rate of offspring death in the few diabetic pregnancies in years before insulin was discovered was incredibly high—about 50% dying in utero and during labor and 80% of the remainder in the first days after birth (Lambie 1926).

It was even proposed that its apparent infrequency was deceptive, the result of failure to detect preexisting mild or inapparent instances (Williams 1909); a contention supported by a collection from the literature of 66 “definite” cases of diabetes in pregnant women, 55 of which were considered to be present before conception and to have persisted afterward. The disbelief, that diabetes frequently arose during pregnancy, stemmed from the difficulty of distinguishing between diabetes and the physiological glycosuria of pregnancy.

The positive findings varied in several ways, especially in frequency of the big babies. This was not only because of variable weight criteria and uncritically accepted maternal memory, but mainly because of differences in various maternal attributes, whose association with birthweight was not yet well recognized. The trend also differed. Big babies sometimes occurred only in the years immediately preceding diabetes onset (Paton 1948; see Pirart 1955 for further refer- Prediabetes Pregnancy Mortality 37 ences); or in an increasing frequency throughout the prediabetic years (Moss and Mulholland 1951; Jackson 1952; Hagbard 1958); some the opposite, the frequency generally decreasing (Peel and Oakley 1949; Malins and FitzGerald 1965); or there was an elevated but constant level over most of the prediabetic period (Futcher and Long 1954; Rolland 1954; Pirart 1955).
