What is the standard blood sugar level for a pregnancy of 5 months. Specially for dinner and lunch and with how much time difference.

In pregnant women with diabetes we generally aim for pre-meal numbers in the range of 90-130 if we can get there without risking low blood sugars. If the woman is not on insulin, it's fine to be lower. About 6 hours btween ...Read more

I suggest simply not offering the news, and if anyone is bold enough to ask, answer with something vague like, "why, do I LOOK it?" Good luck!! ...Read more
