Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    What is the average blood sugar levels for a pregnant woman?
    I got a call from my doctor today saying that mine was too high so I was wondering whats normal.
    Im at 207

    • ANSWER:
      yeah, your blood sugar is too high.

      my doctor (i’m also pregnant) wants my blood sugar < 130 one hour after eating; < 120 two hours after eating. when you wake up in the morning, it should be between 60 and 90. take the 1 hr sugar test or the 3 hr sugar test to see if you are diabetic.

      to be honest, it's not a big deal if you are diabetic. you just really need to watch the foods you eat. so get used to a lot of salads, lean meats, and cheese. no more burgers and french fries :(

  2. QUESTION:
    does someone know whats the normal average for blood sugar levels after eating for a pregnant type 2 diabetic?
    i know whats the normal levels for a NON-PREGNANT but not for a pregnant woman, i’m pregnant right now. my doctor told me that i have to be between 80-95 fasting and 140 after eating. its very strick i know its for my own good but what do you think about this?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi I’m also pregnant with type 2 diabetes I’m going on 23 weeks. My doctor says my fasting level should be from 70-105 and 1 hour after eating anything below 145 to 70 is okay. I guess each doctor is different. Right now I’m kinda freaking out cause my sugar was high after lunch like real high 184- I think I messed up this morning by eating a whole donut with sprinkles and then not eating again till 5 hrs later it’s been 3 hrs and it’s only come down to 174, and my suagr levels have been great up intill now. So kinda worried. Well enough rambling I was here to answer your question not tell you my days problem….. Sorry!!!!

  3. QUESTION:
    Bad marriges unhealthy for women, but not men?

    http://www.cnn.com/2009/HEALTH/03/06/marriage.women.heart/

    “In the study, University of Utah researchers looked at 276 couples to see if depression was the real reason poor marriages have been found to be harmful to health. The couples were middle-aged or older Utah residents who were mostly married for a long time on average more than 27 years; they ranged in age from 32 to 76.

    The researchers found that bad relationships were bad for health– for women at least. Women in troubled relationships were more likely than other women to be depressed. Plus, they were more likely to have metabolic syndrome, a cluster of risk factors including elevated blood pressure, high triglycerides, low levels of HDL (good) cholesterol, abdominal obesity, and elevated blood sugar– all basically steps on the road to heart attack or diabetes.

    “For husbands, we didn’t see, on its own, that negative marital stuff was related at all to metabolic syndrome. The only thing it was related to was their depressive symptoms,” said Nancy Henry, a doctoral candidate in clinical psychology at the University of Utah. “For men, having a problematic marriage is still emotionally, but not physically, problematic healthwise.””

    • ANSWER:
      “The only thing it was related to was their (men’s) depressive symptoms”
      Last time I checked, depression was a health problem. This study is fatally flawed except as a propaganda device.

  4. QUESTION:
    Why can’t I conceive?! Can someone give me advice? TTC 3 yrs?
    I know you’re most likely NOT a Dr.. but I know some women here have some of the same issues/questions and may be able to help me..

    Soo, I’m in my 20′s, no known health problems.. I have been TTC for over 3 yrs, I do ovulate, not sure if every month b/c i do not chart or use OPK’s anymore.. I was put on clomid for 3 cycles, monitored cycles this year that showed I ovulated fine, had an HSG done in April showing clear tubes and a possible fibroid/polyp (dr didn’t seem concerned)..IDK if this matters but he did have a hard time getting the ink through one of my tubes (it hurt like H3LL when it finally went through BTW) I also had one trigger shot one of the clomid months as well to make sure the follicles popped.. My hormone levels showed I have high testosterone, my prolactin levels were slightly elevated, but they did not check my estrogen levels or anything during the first part of my cycle.. My blood sugar was within range so he didn’t diagnose me w/PCOS..

    Lately my cycles have been getting longer and longer, 42days was my last cycle, and they were averaging 28-31 days before when I was on Clomid. I’m 5’4” weigh 134.. I’m starting to wonder if I’m a thin- PCOS. I definitely think the hormone imbalance may be the reason I’m having such difficulty, but other than that everything else is checking out ok.. Any advice please?
    sorry! I forgot to mention hubby is fine so it’s def. me!
    Then I’m wondering, If I am PCOS, will I be put on Metformin, I was on that for 2 months this year, only 500 mg and it made me sick, even on extended release (I just wanted to see if it would help) but I don’t think it did, 2 months isn’t that long either.. but I’m just afraid I will finally get diagnosed, then get happy thinking I’m going to get help, and STILL not ever get pregnant :( I’m so sick of feeling defective and hubby doesn’t understand OR want to try IUI’s..

    • ANSWER:
      You do have high testosterone but he didn’t diagnose you or even consider pcos because your sugar was fine? My blood work comes back pretty well normal but I have pcos. Have you seen a reproductive endocrinologist? You need to have your cd3 blood work done in order to get a more complete picture of your hormone panels.
