Hi there...I can understand your concern. It would be better if you delayed your plans to have a baby, until your blood sugar levels and blood pressure are under control. High sugar levels can lead to gestational diabetes and high blood pressure can lead to eclampsia. Your fasting blood sugars level of 286 is very high. Kindly consult your general physician with reports. Your medications might need to be increased or changed as clearly your sugar levels are not under control. Also before you plan for a baby, kindly consult a obstetrician once. They will councel you regarding the precautions and complications.
