My wife is 22 weeks pregnant. It is a dichorionic diamniotic twin pregnancy. Her fasting sugar level is 6.9. The doctor suggested taking insulin injection. Is it safe to take insulin during pregnancy? Could you suggest some tips to follow or any diet recommendations, please? Also, we have noticed that in the ultrasound scan report, there is a comment 'decreased end diastolic flow in the UMA now' for both the fetuses. What does this mean?
