Abstract

Enteral hyperalimentation has gained wide popularity in the last two decades for the treatment of certain catabolic disease states. Despite its proved effectiveness in gynecologic oncology, its use in obstetrics has been limited. The following reports two instances of its use in insulin-dependent diabetic pregnancies complicated by intractable nausea and vomiting. Long-term enteral hyperalimentation and insulin therapy in a diabetic pregnancy are reviewed.
