Question:

From New York, USA:

I had a miscarriage a few months ago and now am about four weeks pregnant. At about the same time, for both pregnancies, my blood sugars have gone over 200+ mg/dl [11.1 mmol/L] even after checking one-half hour to one hour after meals. My control before pregnancy was great. My blood sugar was very rarely over 140 mg/dl [7.8 mmol/L]. Is this due to insulin resistance? The first time I was pregnant the highs only lasted a few days, and then my blood sugar when back down to normal. I have to double or triple the amount of insulin I take now. I read that normally you do that at the end of the pregnancy. Any thoughts?

Answer:

Your high blood sugars are most likely due to increased insulin resistance from the pregnancy. This is very common and can happen even early in the pregnancy.
