My daughter had a premature birth w/ her first child due to high BP +vprotein in her urine. Will her 2nd pregnant be more high risk? My daughter has just discovered she is pregnant for the second time. Her first pregnancy 5 years ago ended up with a 3 wee

My daughter had a premature birth w/ her first child due to high BP +vprotein in her urine. Will her 2nd pregnant be more high risk? My daughter has just discovered she is pregnant for the second time. Her first pregnancy 5 years ago ended up with a 3 wee

Yes : Yes her 2nd pregnancy will be considered high risk as it sound like she had pre-eclampsia or what some will call toxiemia. Her doctor will monitor her closely for signs of elevated BP and proteinuria and also make sure that if she has gestational diabetes, that she is treated and monitored for it. About 3 percent of women have pre-eclampsia and 7 percent have gestional diabetes with pregnancy so it is common enough that most ob/gyn doctors are comfortable managing patients with who end up having high blood pressure or diabetes in pregnancy. Best wishes. ...Read more

Was the specimen processed immediately after the urine collection? ...Read more

The level of HCG then decreases slightly until the 16th week where it remains fairly constant until birth. ...Read more

Am 14 weeks pregnant. What is the normal sugar level during pregnancy? When and how the test is conducted? Pls tell the level intervals in indian scale.

Pregnancy should not: Pregnancy does not ordinarily affect blood sugar unless you are prone to diabetes. The normal sugar, done fasting , should be between 60 to 99 mg/dl. Anything over 100mg would be of concern. The test is simple to run...Just ask for fasting blood sugar level and it can be done in any lab, although the lab may ask for a doctor's order or contact info where they can send the report of the blood test. ...Read more

What should normal blood sugar levels be, for fasting, 1 hr and 2 hr post prandial during pregnancy? Is 124 at one hour pp normal?

Blood sugar: The normal fasting blood sugar is lower during pregnancy. The fasting blood sugar should be less than 95 mg/dL. The one hour post prandial blood sugar should be less than 140 mg/dL and the two hour post prandial blood sugar should be less than 120 mg/dL. So a measurement of 124 mg/dL at one hour post prandial is normal. ...Read more

My TSH level is 4.0 but my T3 (liothyronine) and T4 is normal. Do I still need meds? And can I be on it during pregnancy?
