Objective: To evaluate the pregnancy outcomes in mothers with controlled Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM). Materials and Methods: Thirty seven pregnant patients with controlled T1DM were included in the study. Results: Twenty (54%) out of 37 patients had preterm delivery (<37 weeks of gestation). The type of delivery was induced vaginal delivery in 9 (24.3%) patients and cesarean section in 27 (72.9%) patients. Preeclampsia developed in 6 (16.2%) patients. Macrosomia was found in 9 (24%) patients. Two antenatal death occured.
