I became diabeties only after 4months of my delivery.Now I am using metformin 500mg 2 times ,but for the past 6months my sugar level is normal.

hi sheena!

u can certainly do so esp if u are a well controlled diabetic . all u need to do is get some investigations done --hb/tlc/dlc/esr/ HbA1c/ urine r/m/ fasting & pp bld sugars / lh & fsh levels in fasting --- do consult a physician in person as well as your gyna dr. keep taking your anti diabetic medication now . later on during pregnancy your physician will switch you over to insulin --which is best anti diabetic of pregnancy
