Is gestational diabetes dangerous for pregnant woman? - Online Doctor Chats
Hello Doctor, my name is XXXXXXX
Please proceed with the query
i have discussed about my wife's blood test report with you earlier and found that everything is normal
but the same report when showed to local gynac - she is doubting about diabetes
in the blood test - it was slated that Glucase=trace
yes you did mention traces of glucose
and the doctor again wants two blood tests - with and with out food
i did ask you about FBS and ppbs levels
you told it is not done
also sugar tests are normally done for everyone.
and there will also be normally traces of glucose present in pregnant woman
i am not sure of FBS and PPBS
but it is given as glucose ( F/R) =trace in the report
that is what the doctor ordered now
tests - with and with out food
FBS is fasting and PPBS after food
okay these are mandatory tests ?
yes, what is this gestational diabetes ? any harm ?
these tests are mandatory
okay, generally they should be done at which month ?>
are normally done whether suspicious of diabetes or not, i do not know how your doctor did not advice you
first trimester and 3rd trimester
gestational diabetes if present can be treated with insulin

nothing to worry

few more weeks , she should be fine, in case even if it is increased it can be controlled
okay, will the sugar levels come down after delivery ?
yes , it will go back to normal once delivery is over.Let us assume she does not have right now and hope for the best
regarding the yeast cells she do a gynec check up

and the doctor said not to worry about yest cells
