Suggest treatment for low blood sugar levels

hi I have diabetes and have been controlling it with diet up until 4 weeks or so ago I have now been experiencing a lot of low blood sugar levels they have been 4.2 and when I get them up they don t stay up long and don t increase by much just wondering why all of a sudden I am experiencing these lows and could it be that I am pregnant and all my sugar is getting used?

Hi,
Thanks for asking.
Based on your query, my opinion is as follows.
1. Pregnancy is a stressful period and during times of stress metabolism increases thereby causing frequent low blood sugar level episodes.
2. You need to increase your diet appropriately.
3. Avoid hypoglycemic episodes. Any sort of fall or severe hypoglycemic episodes could be dangerous and cause complication anytime during pregnancy.
Hope it helps.
Any further queries, happy to help again.
