Gestational Diabetes from 2007

  1. I was diagnosed with diabetes in my first trimester, so it may have been a preexisting condition. If I control my diabetes by diet, will I need to be induced at 38 weeks? (6 Nov 2007)
  2. One of my glucose test readings, taken at 28 weeks, was just below normal. Shouldn't I have been told I was borderline for gestational diabetes? (22 Oct 2007)
  3. At 21 weeks, my blood sugars were normal during my three hour test, but they want me to take it again at 28 weeks because I failed my initial one hour test. Why? (28 Sep 2007)
  4. Diagnosed with gestational diabetes, my post meal blood sugars are fine, but my fasting blood sugars are slightly elevated. What does this mean? (24 Sep 2007)
  5. Can fasting cause you to fail the one hour glucose test? I was 158 mg/dl [8.8 mmol/L] after fruit and a piece of cake. Is that high? (14 Jun 2007)
  6. At six weeks of my pregnancy, my fastings are from 135 mg/dl [7.5 mmol/L] to 145 mg/dl [8.1 mmol/L].Could I have gestational diabetes this early? (9 May 2007)
  7. I am taking insulin for gestational diabetes. I eat three meals a day and snacks, but have urine ketones. Will they harm my unborn baby? (3 Apr 2007)
  8. At 28 weeks, I had a blood sugar test when I was getting over a stomach virus. Are the results still accurate? Should I go ahead with the next screening? (23 Mar 2007)
  9. At 28 weeks, I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes, but I'm confused about my blood sugars. Can you help me understand them? (16 Feb 2007)
  10. I was diagnoed with gestational diabetes and put on insulin. My obstetrician thinks I may have had diabetes BEFORE I was pregnant. Is this possible? (30 Jan 2007)
  11. My obstetrician has a low cut-off for gestational diabetes and wants me to have more tests. Why is he using such low values? (7 Jan 2007)
