Dear Cassandra, I hope these words will relieve some of your nervousness
and be usefull to you:
Abnormal blood sugar levels can cause your cycles to be irregular and consequently may affect your chances of getting pregnant, but the good thing is, once you have optimum blood sugar controll, you are as normal individuals.
By optimum blood sugar controll I mean fasting levels not more than 90 mg/dl and the 2 hours postprandial not more than 140 mg/ dl. ( you can divide by 18 to convert to mm/l ), and the HbA1C
not more than 6.
If you are having irregular cycles inspite of optimum blood sugar controll, there are many other causes and the first thing to start with is to measure these hormone levels at the second day of menstruation
(either spontaneous or induced by drugs): FSH, LH, TSH, Prolactin
Finally loosing some weigh and optimizing your BMI (Body Mass Index
) may be of very good help.
I wish you best of luck Cassandra..
Dr. Ahmed Bahaa.
