Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

Hello...
FBS- 279mg/dl is quite high... i suggest you to go for retest and do both fbs and ppbs... do you have any other risks too like hypo/ hyperthyroidism or hypertension etc...
Dr. Payal M can you also suggest her...

Me

i had thyroid ..my tsh levels used yo be higher  a bit border line high 3 years ago but then it got controlled and with homeopathy it was wothin the range ...recently my tsh report hasnt come yet

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

hamm get advice from your gynec.. dont delay

Me

yep doc ... as of now i am controlling food like not having rice , potato, sugary items ...more focussed on proteins in 2 weeks will test again and visit doc

Dr. Payal M

yup get tested again. be active n dont worry even if the readings r high again. there is medication fr this.

Me

Dr. Payal M

once we know the results further discussion abt wht it means n how it can impact ur pregnancy can b done.

even i was diagnosed with the same problem during 5 month of my pregnancy but nothing to worry u can control it with ur diet .A special diet plan will be given to u jst follow it and u need to check ur sugar levels empty stomatch and  2 hrs post meals if u will be able to control it that way then u wont be prescribed  any medicine and post pregnancy it will go away itself ...controlled sugar levels will not harm ur baby at all...Best of luck

Me

thanks harpreet😊
