Gestational Diabetes from 2005

  1. Prior to conceiving, I was urinating frequently. Now, at 29 weeks, I have gestational diabetes. Could I have had diabetes before my pregnancy? (22 Dec 2005)
  2. My one hour test for gestational diabetes was just over the cutoff so the doctor recommended a three hour test. Am I likely to have gestational diabetes? (15 Dec 2005)
  3. When I had my GTT in my 27th week of pregnancy, my blood sugars went down, then slightly higher. Is this indicative of anything? (26 Nov 2005)
  4. In my 16th week, I've had no blood sugars over 130 mg/dl [7.2 mmol/L]. I think this may be gestational, not preexisting, diabetes. What do you think? (23 Nov 2005)
  5. During my test for gestational diabetes, my blood sugar went up, but remained normal. Is it still possible I have gestational diabetes? (23 Nov 2005)
  6. My cousin's doctor wants to test her twice for gestational diabetes since she already has a daughter with diabetes. Is she at higher risk? (4 Nov 2005)
  7. If I had an elevated blood sugar at 37 weeks, will I be placed on a diet or have labor induced? (21 Sep 2005)
  8. I have been diagnosed with gestational diabetes. Will I be able to control my blood sugars through diet throughout my pregnancy? (17 Aug 2005)
  9. Since I had gestational diabetes before, I was tested early in my current pregnancy. Do I have gestational diabetes? Should I be re-tested later? (14 May 2005)
  10. I am now at 37.5 weeks with gestational diabetes. I have not needed insulin for two days, no matter what I eat. Is this normal? Do I need to worry about stillbirth? (6 Apr 2005)
  11. At 17 weeks, my glucose was on the high side of normal. I'm gaining a lot of weight and concerned since my son was 10 pounds at birth. What do you think? (6 Apr 2005)
  12. My daughter, who has insulin resistance, had an elevated blood sugar at 19 weeks of her pregnancy. Could she have gestational diabetes? (2 Apr 2005)
  13. Why do you need a high carbohydrate before a GTT? Doesn't this mean you are destined to fail? (5 Mar 2005)
  14. I have gestational diabetes. Sometimes I feel nauseous and lethargic and have a blood sugar in the 7s mmol/L [126 to 143 mg/dl]. Why is this? (22 Feb 2005)
  15. My three hour glucose test was normal, but I had sugar in my urine at my last appointment. Do I have gestational diabetes? (17 Feb 2005)
  16. Is it normal to do a third 75 gram Glucose Tolerance Test (GTT) after already passing two? (17 Feb 2005)
  17. My doctor wants me to take a three hour glucose test, but I felt ill during the one hour test. Is there another option? (22 Jan 2005)
  18. I'm six months pregnant. My doctor wants me to increase my NPH to lower my fasting blood sugar. Why do I need fasting blood sugars? (6 Jan 2005)
  19. Is phenylalanine safe for my wife during her pregnancy? (5 Jan 2005)
  20. Years ago, I was diagnosed with acute hypoglycemia. During my recent pregnancy, my GTT results were unusual. Could I have gestational diabetes? (4 Jan 2005)
