Research summary

Women with diabetes in pregnancy continue to have poor pregnancy outcomes compared to women without diabetes. Strict blood sugar control before and during pregnancy can reduce pregnancy complications. Despite the hard work of women with diabetes and their healthcare teams, very few women achieve guideline recommended blood sugar targets. My research program is focused on improving the health of both mothers with diabetes and their babies.


Dr. Yamamoto is a clinician researcher and recently joined the department of internal medicine at the University of Manitoba in July 2020. She completed her medical school and internal medicine residency at UM. She subsequently completed her endocrinology training and MSc in clinical epidemiology at the University of Calgary and furthered a one-year research fellowship in diabetes in pregnancy at the University of East Anglia in the United Kingdom.

Dr. Yamamoto’s main research and clinical interests include diabetes in pregnancy and thyroid disease in pregnancy. Specifically, her research program is interested in how we can leverage diabetes technology to improve outcomes in pregnancies complicated by diabetes.
