Complications During Pregnancy for Those with DM Recently Summarized

A recent publication by health care workers at The University of Tennessee summarized complications occurring during pregnancy for those with DM and other neuromuscular disorders. Often, the research findings focused on either myotonic dystrophy type 1 or type 2, but many of the complications occur in both. Furthermore, some symptoms may arise due to manifestations of the disease in the pregnant woman, while others arise due to her child having congenital myotonic dystrophy (only found with DM1). A list of complications that occur more frequently in pregnant women with DM can be found on the Myotonic website
