Brief Answer:
Here are some considerations

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for the information

You have to keep your blood sugars under strict control if you plan conception. Once you conceive the fasting should be no more than 90 and after food should be no more than 130.

You may have to be started on insulin once you conceive to keep the sugars under control as above.

Take folic acid tables starting from now if you are planning in next 2 or 3 months

Tab Glycomet is fine as it contains Metformin, you may have to stop any other antidiabetic medications you conceive and be put on insulin.

Hope, I answered your query.

Please do ask if any doubts.

Regards,
