This causes the baby's system to produce insulin at a higher rate, which fuels growth. There are multiple complications at risk. You can use exercise to bring blood sugar back to normal range. Be sure and follow your doctor's orders to a T. ...Read more

My random blood sugar result came 12.2g/DL is it too high am I suffering from gestational diabetes? How can I control it?
Get units right: Blood glucose is measured in mg/Dl, with a 'normal' fasting range somewhere between 60 and 110 mg/Dl in the fasting state, or early in the morning when you first wake up. 12.2 mg/Dl would be a very LOW blood sugar level, but 12.2g/Dl would be incredibly high, not compatible with normal health. If you cannot control your blood sugar you need to get a test done, maybe get medication to control it ...Read more

Pattern not number: Baby begins to make their own Insulin during mid pregnancy & any moment that moms levels are high will push glucose across the placenta, forcing baby to store the excess as fat.
