From Maracaibo, Zulia, Venezuela:

I am 27 years old and have had Type 1 diabetes for 23 years. Recently, I was given Avandia [rosiglitazone] then I read that it was for treating Type 2 diabetes. I am trying to get pregnant, so I want to know what adverse effects this medication can cause. What should I do?


Avandia is low risk to the baby. However, your doctor should change your medication to insulin before you become pregnant.
