In brief: Depends On Control
There is no single digit answer you can apply to an individual patient.
One brazillian study in 2011 found that 14% of 400 women delivered prematurely, but the rate really depends on how well the mother controls her disease, other issues like preeclampsia, and the reason for delivery (poor control can cause other problems for the mom/baby that could require a cesarean section before 38 weeks).
