Gestational Diabetes from 2006
- Is it normal for insulin resistance to increase during pregnancy without necessarily leading to gestational diabetes? (2 Nov 2006)
- I passed my OGTT, but my endocrinologist wants me to check my blood sugars and watch my diet during my pregnancy. Should I be concerned about random highs? (1 Oct 2006)
- At my 18 week appointment, I spilled glucose in my urine, but the midwife said not to worry. Should I try to convince her to test me now? (30 Aug 2006)
