Well today has been a good day numbers wise. My fasting was 6.2 so not great and I fully expected another high after brekky but it was 6.9....then 5.2 after lunch and after dinner it was 7.1. And as I was strict with myself for snacks no hypos either. That's the irony of having the good numbers I then become paranoid I'll drop to low.
Madmae yay for good numbers! It amazing how uplifting you can feel when you have a day of no highs, it doesn't happen often for me, except for today, i did have a few hypos though but somehow they seem less annoying than highs.
Hope debs is doing well hopefully her baby will be here or well on her/his way now
Hello everyone, slowly working my way through this thread but wondering if anyone knows at what levels my dr will put me on metformin (ive got the tablets already but told not to take them yet....). The only high reading ive had was this morning (5.6) and everything else has been well below the targets. thanks x
I think your doc will wait until there is a trend in rising and catch it before it goes officially over. I started with one in the eve with meal and have slowly gone up - so now I'm taking 2in a morning and 2 in an evening (max dose). i started taking at 12 weeks and I'll be 30 weeks this week and still ok on them.
Some docs like to start when you've had three high readings in one week. Hopefully you can go as long as poss without them but when you need to just get going they make life so much easier. x
Thanks chicks, ive spoken with my Diabetic nurse today and she says im doing well. Just the one 5.6 before breakfast so far so im quite chuffed!!
What do you reccommend as i need something sweet after my dinner ( think the late night ben n jerrys contributed towards my 'high' this morning
Hi... question for you ladies. I have GD but it's been semi-easy to control with my diet... although I occasionally get crazy numbers. I had an u/s last week and baby's head circumference was measuring 4 1/2 weeks ahead! Everything else was fairly normal and estimated weight looked average, so not a big baby. Just a big head! Does anyone know if GD can just affect the head growth, and not the rest of the body??
