Fetal Hemoglobin in the Infant of Gestational Diabetic Mothers (IGDM)
The normal changeover in the hemoglobin pattern during the perinatal period has been reported to be delayed in the infants of diabetic mothers (IDM) (Perrine etal, 1985; Bard and Prosmanne, 1985). The same finding has been observed in the infants of mothers with chronic lung disease (Bromberg et al., 1956) and in intrauterine growth delay (Bard, 1974).
