We explored the influence of exposure to maternal diabetes in utero on β cell decline measured by fasting C-peptide (FCP) among 1079 youth <20 years with diabetes, including 941 with type 1 and 138 with type 2 diabetes. Youths exposed to maternal diabetes had FCP levels that were 17% lower among youth with type 2 diabetes [95% confidence interval (CI): –34%, +6%] and 15% higher among youth with type 1 diabetes (95%CI: –14%, +55%) than their unexposed counterparts, although differences were not statistically significant (p=0.13 and p=0.35, respectively). Exposure to maternal diabetes was not associated with FCP decline in youth with type 2 (p=0.16) or type 1 diabetes (p=0.90); nor was the effect of in utero exposure on FCP modified by diabetes type. Findings suggest that exposure to maternal diabetes in utero may not be an important determinant of short-term β-cell function decline in youth with type 1 or type 2 diabetes.
