Pregnancy diabetes
Hi I am into 36 weeks of pregnancy. At 34 weeks I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes Fasting: 100 PP: 117 Doctor prescribed cetapin 250mg once daily After a week Fasting : 93 PP: 100 Doctor said the values are high and increased dose cetapin 500mg. Now I am 36 weeks. Feeling very depressed as doctor suggested to go for insulin if values don't decrease. Despite of anything my values are not getting decreased. Is these values are something very critical to my baby or It is normal

You have Gestational diabetes You are close to delivery and outcome is almost achieved. It’s only till delivery u will need right sugar control Fasting 70-94 1 hour post meal- 90-130 If Cetapin( Metformin) can achieve with once twice or thrice a day u r fine. If sugars cross target level then u will need insulin only temporarily as all medications will stop after delivery unless U were on anti diabetic medication earlier.
