check with another doctor too.

Please take a second opinion. It is advisable for the levels to be at 6 for women who have diabetes and are planning a Pregnancy and in the first few weeks of conception to reduce the chances of birth defects. However if it is early pregnancy you may still be able to work at controlling the levels and bringing it to the normal range. And then subsequently tests to ensure that the baby is developing well. This is just a guideline to seek a second opinion and then make a decision.

hba1c of 9 is high value. but that is not enough. what are her sugars? what is the status of pregnancy? she needs a holistic counselling with options given to her. it is finally upto her to decide. doctor cannot advise termination.. but can or should advise options
