Question from Texas, USA:
My sister does not have diabetes, but her husband has type 2, and they have been trying to have a child to no avail. The first pregnancy ended in a miscarriage in the fourth month of her pregnancy, and her second pregnancy ended up being a blighted ovum. What are the odds that this is being caused by my brother-in-law's diabetes?
The probability of the problems arising from your brother-in-law’s type 2 diabetes is low. However, with their lack of success, they should consult with their obstetrician about evaluating other male and female factors that may contribute to fetal loss.
