Answer: Your can ask your doctor to suggest a diet plan or refer to a nutritionist who can plan it for you. My doc suggested me to stop eating white rice, normal wheat flour maida , sugar , bananas, and any kind of junk food. Instead replace them with healthy choices of multigrain ata, brown rice, salad including cucumber and tomato with lemon dressing, not too sweet fruits like oranges,guava,apples, few grapes can be also taken. The key to control your levels is to control your quantity too,like instead of 3 chapatis take 2 in one meal, then after 2 hrs you can have 1 chapati again if you feel hu hey.
Answer: Hello dear!! He would firstly do your Glucose Tolerance Test (GCT) to know your hba1 c levels. You may have gestational diabetes. If your hba1c is not normal, then it may cause birth defects such as macrosomia or hypoglycemic. In this the child's head gets bigger. To reduce this, you will have to control your diet a lot. If hba 1c is more then you should start medication. Sugar does not take much time to grow. Take a 30-minute walk everyday. Totally stop having sugary and high in carbs your food. Don't stress yourself and get it tested on a priority

    Glucose tolerance test is different and HBa1c test is different. Don't worry please do as per doctor advice. Take proper medicine and strict diet. Go for walk. If you control your blood sugar it won't affect your baby.

    Hi,the normal fasting sugar levels should be less than 95 and 1 hr after eating should be less than 140, doctor might start with medicine or may prescribe insulin to control as it does not cross the placenta and is safest, diet control can help majorly, doctor might ask to monitor it for some days to see the trend and post that will prescribe. Take care

Question: My baby at the time of birth was very fair but now his colour has turned dark after how much time he will get his original colour
Answer: Baby's colour at the time of birth is not at all their actual colour, it's almost 3-4 shades lighter due to long time exposure in liquid environment... It can take around a year to get actual skin colour. Hope you are not exposing your child longer time in this sunlight as it can cause skin tanning and darkening of skin.
