Infants born to diabetic mothers may have an increased risk of having HPE. Diabetic mothers can help reduce their risks of having children with birth defects and congenital disorders, such as HPE, by strictly controlling their blood sugar levels. Therefore, expectant mothers with diabetes are encouraged to choose doctors with expertise in diabetes care. This helps ensure that the pregnant mother and the fetus obtain the best possible care before and during pregnancy.
Infants born to mothers who have infections, such as herpes, syphilis, cytomegalovirus, rubella, and toxoplasmosis, may have an increased risk of developing HPE. Therefore, pregnant mothers who have symptoms of infections should seek prompt medical treatment.
