?diabetes: The numbers are a bit high. I would suggest doing a glucose tolerance test asap to ascertain whether you have developed gestational diabetes. Alternatively, you can do a  virtual consultation with a Dr online,  through the Discovery DrConnect app,   where we can assess and refer you for testing. Kind Regards Dr Aylwin David Nathaniel
