I am 30-years-old, and I had gestational diabetes during pregnancy. My fasting blood sugar has always been normal. However, after eating a meal, the levels were outside the normal ranges. So, I just ate minimal carbohydrates. The baby was born ten days before the due date with a weight of 3.1 kg. My height is 170 cm, and my weight before pregnancy was around 54 kg; I reached 64 kg during pregnancy. Now I am around 52 kg. I returned to this level within seven months. After delivery, whenever I monitored my blood sugar levels after meals, they kept being out of range. After 45 days of delivery, I did a glucose tolerance test, and the results were as follows:
- Fasting - 4.7 mmol/L
- After 1 hour - 15.03 mmol/L
- After 2 hours - 12.18 mmol/L
Is it possible that the hormones are still not balanced after delivery, and more time is needed? I did not understand the reason for gestational diabetes to be still present.
