Question: Hello, I am 28 weeks pregnant and my sugar level is going high. Tried to control sugar level with diet and exercise then medication also prescribed by endocrinologist. But finally my sugar level went high, so now Dr. Started insulin. I want to know is it safe to take insulin or any side effects??
Answer: Insulins are safe to use during pregnancy as it doesn't cross the placenta to the fetus. I had the same problem too. My doc gave me a month to lower my sugar level. I stopped eating sugar and potatoes and had rotis instead of rice(except for lunch). Besides walking for 30 minutes everyday, i also had to do all the house hold works which meant double exercise for me 😊 luckily within a month my sugar level decreased to normal. I guess yours is related to hormones so you can't control it with diet. High blood sugar can cause huge complications during labor so its really important to control your blood sugar. Talk to your doc for more details 😊 best of luck
