Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

in pregnancy,hormone changes can make your blood sugar level rise. 
effects on baby- Low blood sugar  levels when they're born,Jaundice,Pre-term birth,breathing problems..
effects on mother are Miscarriage,High blood pressure or preeclampsia,Pre-term birth..hence eat healthy, stay fit,take medicines properly and tests shud be done regularly..

Please consult a nutrionist to help plan your meals. If it is not coming under control the doctor will need to start medications.
