To screen and to diagnose gestational diabetes, you must do glucose challenge test and oral glucose tolerance test.
Glucose challenge test is done first and if it shows abnormal values, an oral glucose tolerance test is done.

OBGYN Dr. Meenakshi T Sahu's  Response
If this is the first time you are having abnormal sugar profile, consult obstetrician who in collaboration with diabetologist would advise you diet modification to suit your pregnancy requirement. As far as blood sugar levels are concerned according to WHO criteria your fasting sugar is in normal range but your 2hr PP is raised. If your sugar levels were not checked in early part of pregnancy, get your blood test- glycosylated haemoglobin done. After 2 weeks of diet modification repeat blood sugar is done and management accordingly.
