Retinopathy in Diabetic Pregnancy-IGF and Progression

Abstract

Retinopathy in Diabetic Pregnancy-IGF and Progression

Retinopathy is of outmost importance in relation to conservation of the visual function and the quality of life. Diabetes mellitus is one of the main causes of blindness in the Western world. The mechanism by which pregnancy, diabetes, and retinopathy interact is by higher retinal flow and by circulating and vitreous IGF-1. Similar pathways may be suspected due to co-existence of vascular morbidity in the kidney and retina. Given the encouraging development of methods of diagnosing vascular morbidity, the aim is early to detect factors, which are responsible for further deterioration.

Keywords: Retinopathy; Pregnancy; IGF-1
