AIMS: To investigate the prognostic value of estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) and albuminuria in determining pregnancy outcomes in women with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. METHODS: An observational study of pregnant women with type 1 (n = 92) and type 2 diabetes (n = 106) who delivered between 2004 and 2014 at a single tertiary obstetric centre. Clinical and biochemical characteristics were determined and related to major obstetric outcomes: preeclampsia, preterm birth <32 and <37 weeks, and neonatal intensive care admission. We used univariate analyses and multivariable logistic regression models with eGFR using the Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration (CKD-EPI) equati..
