    Dear Doctor Parveen, Good morning,

    Once band formed no one can help. Some times these bands may cause the amputation of the fingers, wrist, ankle and other small joints.

    Exactly where the band formed? The procedure depends upon the site of band formation. Only thing is wait until full term is the solution. Some times lungs may not developed due to this band.

    Hello Doctor Nazma Parveen.,
    32 to 34 weeks the toughest period for gestational diabetes. They may develop insulin resistance. So insulin resistance increases and levels worsen again. progesterone level increases and insulin resistance rises. GTT become positive, and rapid growing of the baby which making placenta making work harder and push out more insulin blocking hormones.
    so in this condition I suggest you to go for c/s.
