What are my chances of a successful pregnancy with hba1c of 72?

Diabetes & pregnancy: I hope you mean 7.2 and not 72. (i would tell you not to get pregnancy if it was really 72, but fortunately the measurement doesn't go up that high.) assuming that it is 7.2, you could safely get pregnant and have a good pregnancy outcome. Your diabetes will have to be managed carefully during your pregnancy, and your doctors will likely try to get your a1c even lower--e.g. Mid-6 range. ...Read more

Additionally, you will be at increased risk for preeclampsia, indicated preterm birth, macrosomia, cesarean delivery and infections. Seek mfm care! ...Read more

Metabolic problems: First of all, don't panic. Many women develop sugar problems during pregnancy. Your obstetrician is trained to screen for these and other metabolic disorders that can cause problems during your pregnancy but once identified, you will be advised about how to manage these problems, sometimes using diet alone or with medication. You may also be referred to see an endocrinologist. ...Read more

My wife type2 dm  past 6 years &having 5 yr old child.Hba1c<7.Shall we have 2nd child?

Why not: You wife's condition as such should not prevent you from having the 2nd child. Her sugar should be well controlled before conception and during the entire pregnancy. Control should be tighter than usual: target a1c 6%. It is important to have regular obstetric and medical follow-ups to ensure best possible pregnancy. If you have specific concerns, you should visit your doc to help plan and prepare. ...Read more
