If your mom is having diabetes, then there are very hight chances that you too will have it. Get it checked since you are a high risk case. It wil help you to confirm/rule it out and in case it does gets confirmed, then you will need to start medications . Start dping diet control anyways..

I am 31 weeks pregnant and have gestational diabetes. My concern is after being on strick diet and insulin morning 10 units and night 8 units, my postprandial sugar level is in the range of 135-160. what should i do now?

Good morning doctor. I am a 55 year old female with type 2 diabetes and a family history of cholesterol. Several statins were described to me before. I was on Aspavor for some time but I believe that gave me chest pain. My doctor changed the medicine to Crestor and the condition improved. Because my medical fund does not cover rosovastatin we opt for a generic vusor which was only recently available. Within about a week I was feeling the chest pain. It happens some in the morning and also during the night when I wake up (not every morning). I stopped the vusor for the last three weeks to a month and the chest pain is still there. Do you think I should start taking the Crestor again to see if it goes away, or can it be something else. The active ingredient in Crestor and Vusor is the same?? rosovastatin!! I would appreciate your opinion. Ronell

I was told today that I didn’t pass my 3 hour glucose test. I believe the doctor called it gastational diabetic and told he he made me appointment with a specialist November 14. But I’m not understanding what that is and how I got it since I’m not taking no medicine other than prenatal gummies and it don’t run in my family on either side

We have consulted a doctor and she has prescribed Tab Duphaston (10 mg) twice daily. Could you advise us of its purpose and if it has any side effects in long-term. We would really appreciate your advice on this.
