Question: During my GTT,the fasting sugar is 98,post one hour is 197 and 2 hour is 202..is it very high?,or can be controlled by healthy diet? Or i have to take medicine?...how this effect the baby?
Yes dear you need to get your sugar levels normalized by help of diet regular exercises and if need be on your doctor's recommendation even with help of medication.Gestational diabetes if uncontrolled can lead to excessive birth weight of the baby called as macrosomia.other complications could be pre term birth, pre eclamsia, high bp and even respiratory distress syndrome.There is a high chance of still birth or fetal death too.
You have to take control of this condition by avoiding swetened drinks,white bread,rice,honey,potatoes etc and increase the intake of chapati, brown bread, sweet potato, oats, whole grains like millet, beans, peas , legumes, walnuts almonds etc.Include exercise in your routine and get a diet chart by a dietetician prepared specifically for you.
