Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am a 30-year-old female who is two months pregnant. My doctor diagnosed me with type 2 diabetes now. So, how to maintain my blood sugar level under control during pregnancy? Can diabetes pass to my baby if I am not under control? Will diabetes affect my baby in the future? Will diabetes affect my baby's growth during pregnancy? Please help.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I went through your query and understood your concern. I suggest you do an HbA1c (hemoglobin A1c) test. If it is normal, then no need to worry about diabetes. I also suggest you do regular yoga and walking to prevent diabetes. Avoid junk food. If your sugar levels are controlled, no worries for the baby. I hope this has helped you. Thanks and regards.
