Gestational Diabetes from 2004

  1. Early in my pregnancy, my blood sugars were somewhat high. Would this put my baby at risk for birth defects? Could I have had diabetes before my pregnancy? (27 Dec 2004)
  2. Based on my research of my GTT results, I do not have gestational diabetes. Why am I considered "borderline" and being urged to get diabetes counseling? (26 Nov 2004)
  3. I was just diagnosed with gestational diabetes. For a month, I have been eating extra carbohydrates. Could this put my child at risk for birth defects? (21 Oct 2004)
  4. At 35 weeks, I had a screening for gestational diabetes. Is the result valid this late into the pregnancy? (20 Oct 2004)
  5. At week 28 of my pregnancy, I had a GTT and was 186 mg/dl [10.3 mmol/L] after one hour. Do I really have gestational diabetes? (27 Sep 2004)
  6. I am an athlete. How could I have gestational diabetes? Am I at risk for type 2? Can a past eating disorder lead to gestational diabetes? (11 Sep 2004)
  7. At 36 weeks, I have some high blood sugars. Do I need insulin? If my blood sugars remain high, the doctor wants to induce labor in two weeks. Why? (25 Aug 2004)
  8. I have gestational diabetes. Will I have diabetes after giving birth? When should I consider something other than diet to control my diabetes? (20 Aug 2004)
  9. What are the long term effects to a baby born to a mother with gestational diabetes? (20 Aug 2004)
  10. I had a positive result on a one hour glucose test, but normal at three hours. I feel "groggy" when I eat sweets. Am I at higher risk for type 2? (16 Aug 2004)
  11. I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes after the death of a close friend. Could the related stress have triggered the diabetes? (4 Aug 2004)
  12. At 33 weeks gestation, I have ketones in my urine and fat in my stool. How do I change this without messing up my sugar levels? (7 Jul 2004)
  13. I am seven months pregnant and had an elevated blood sugar. I had thought I had hypoglycemia. Did I cause diabetes or am I just confused? (27 Jun 2004)
  14. I am pregnant. My one hour glucose test results were a high. Could the juice I drank on the morning of the test or the illness I had affect the test? (29 May 2004)
  15. Can high blood sugars effect a pregnancy to the point where the mom miscarries? (13 May 2004)
  16. Over half of my pregnancy I have had high blood sugars. I had thought there would be no harm to the baby. Have I already hurt my baby? (12 May 2004)
  17. My wife had one high reading, out of three, on her three hour blood test. What is the risk to her and the baby, both before and after birth? (23 Mar 2004)
  18. I recently took the three hour glucose tolerance test, had two high readings, one normal. Should I be concerned that my baby will have diabetes? (14 Mar 2004)
  19. My spouse has just been diagnosed with gestational diabetes. What foods can she eat? (14 Mar 2004)
  20. I failed the one hour test for gestational diabetes. Will my blood sugar be elevated after the three hour test? Will I be able to work until childbirth? (10 Mar 2004)
  21. I have PCOS and gestational diabetes. My doctor put me on Lantus and keeps increasing the dosage. Is increasing the dosage really the answer? (10 Mar 2004)
  22. When my child was stillborn, I was told it was due to gestational diabetes. This time, I have a "fuzzy tongue." Is this a sign of gestational diabetes? (6 Mar 2004)
  23. My twins had severe low blood sugars at birth; one now has several health problems. Is this hypoglycemia responsible for the health problems? (3 Mar 2004)
  24. Is any correlation between gestational diabetes and anemia? Could the two be related to another underlying condition? (27 Feb 2004)
  25. I have gestational diabetes. Could my recent higher blood sugars be from the cold I have? (25 Feb 2004)
  26. My wife developed high blood glucoses very early in a previous pregnancy. With another pregnancy, would the sugar levels again rise? (21 Feb 2004)
