22 weeks pregnant mother

Question: Pls tell me GTT test results 213 and 210 are normal or diabetic

1 Answers
Answer: They are not normal,, consult an endocrinologist immediately, this can be harmful for your baby , meanwhile reduce the intake of carbs as much as u can, switch to protein and vegetables avoiding starchy vegs. Take walk after every meal so that the glucose gets utilised fast. Stop eating too much, eat only when u feel hungry, but avoid junk ,oily and carbohydrate rich foods. I'm also suffering from gestational diabetes but making better food choices have helped me a lot.

    You need to consult an endocrinologist for sure he will suggest you either medication or diet change depending upon certain other tests suggest ed by him, usually they suggest insulin shots, but dont get afraid to take it ad it is the best medicine any doctor can prescribe during pregnancy, oral medication for diabetes does not work during pregnancy. Im also taking insulin, i wasted time consulting many doctors but they all had the same opinion that i should take insulin. Maybe only diet change will work for you.

Question: Hi. Any one tell me about gtt and hba1c test
Answer: Oral Glucose tolerance test is done for diagnosis of gestational diabetes. Usually done between 24-28 weeks of pregnancy. You have to be on fasting and the morning blood sample in fasting should be given. After that a 75g glucose solution will be given to you and your blood samples will be collected after 1 hr and then after 2 hrs. HbA1C is glycosylated heamoglobin and it determines your average blood glucose levels for a period of 3 months.
