Why not?: If you have diabetes, you should avoid this because of the sugar content. If you are overweight, which affects pregnancy outcomes, it is extra calories that you don't need. Otherwise why shouldn't you?

I had C-peptid at top of range before pregnant.I lowered it by excluding sugar and wheat from diet.now i'm pregnant.can I eat sugar food?will it harm?

I had C-peptid at top of range before pregnant.I lowered it by excluding sugar and wheat from diet.now i'm pregnant.can I eat sugar food?will it harm?

Stay away: I recommend stay away from pure sugar drinks, foods and processed flours, cakes and desserts high in sugar. It sounds as if you are on the border of insulin resistance and eating the sugar foods will make it worse. Have your c peptide checked again and try to stay away from simple sugar.

Im 6 weeks pregnant can I eat sushi ?

Im 6 weeks pregnant can I eat sushi ?

Sushi & pregnanc: Sushi should be avoided during pregnancy for two reasons. (1) risk of bacterial infection complicating the pregnancy. (2) risk of exposure to mercury complicating the pregnancy. Certainly not worth the risk during pregnancy. Cooked sushi or vegetable-only sushi should be fine, but then we'd worry about the person making the sushi having washed his hands after handling raw fish.

I am 11 weeks pregnant . can i eat Basa fish?thank you..

I am 11 weeks pregnant . can i eat Basa fish?thank you..

Best to avoid: According to the information I obtained, Basa is contaminated with antibiotics, many of which are banned in the US due to safety concerns. In general pregnant women are advised to limit intake of many types of fish due to toxic chemicals or metals accumulating in their tissue. you are still in the phase of pregnancy wher defects can occur. So I wouldn't eat it. Pregnant or not.

38 weeks pregnant can I eat cooked shrimp? Or food that's been cooked with shrimp?

38 weeks pregnant can I eat cooked shrimp? Or food that's been cooked with shrimp?

Ask your OB: If u were my pt i would say yes, in moderation but u need to ask your ob, and a little tip, don't go past your due date - not worth it , latest studies show the safest time for the baby to be delivered is 39-40 weeks- the least chance the baby will end up in the special care nursery, all of my pts are induced at 40 weeks if they haven't delivered, no reason for anything bad to happen to your baby.

21 weeks pregnant. Can I eat coleslaw during pregnancy? I am aware not to eat premade and prepackaged coleslaw from a store or fast food restaurant but what about a sit down restaurant- like Cracker Barrel?

21 weeks pregnant. Can I eat coleslaw during pregnancy? I am aware not to eat premade and prepackaged coleslaw from a store or fast food restaurant but what about a sit down restaurant- like Cracker Barrel?

Should be no problem: I can't imagine store or restaurant where coleslaw is offered would contain noxious ingredients. You might ask the manager of the venue where you purchase food what ingredients are in the slaw. Common sense should guide you.
