Continuous Glucose Monitoring in Pregnant Women Undergoing Betamethasone Therapy
We hope to clarify how betamethasone affects glucose levels in the mother in the days after receiving the drug. This understanding will hopefully allow us to better anticipate the risk of maternal hyperglycemia and therefore establish more appropriate monitoring of maternal glucose to prevent maternal and neonatal complications of hyperglycemia.
Stanford is not currently accepting new patients for this trial. You may want to check clinicaltrials.gov to see if other locations are recruiting.
