Yes , your fasting sugar level is high. But for confirmation do it again in fasting in a good lab. If you are not a diabetic before consult your obstertician immediately. You can check your insulin level in fasting as well in postprandial state too which will help your to decide the proper treatment. From your part check your weight and if it is abnormal try to reduce it. Take good carbohydrates in small quantity frequently will help you to maintain your blood sugar level which is more important for normal foots growth. Do physical exercises daily. Take care.

When you are doing sugar level always mention as plasma glucose level.

Hi runa,
welcome to healthcaremagic.
your fasting blood sugar is definetly high, but do not worry. You are still young, so do not start any medicines for your problem. At your age it is better to check it again. This time you check both fasting as well as after eating food [ fasting and postprandial blood sugar testing ]. If the high sugar persists, then reduce it through exercises, diet control and antistress measures.
feel free to ask any furthur queries.
wishing you good health.

Hello Runa,

For the well being of your baby, you need INSULIN, INSULIN AND INSULIN. Get your tests done in standard lab and if more than normal, dont wait for even a day to start insulin.
