Default Slight elevated fasting BG - Wife Pregnant

Wife pregnant at 24 weeks.

Had a fasting of 99 on my meter today. Something to worry about. I will test her pre and post dinner numbers today and fasting tomorrow and then go to her gynec tomorrow.

She's not overweight. BMI was under 25 pre pregnancy. Gained 5 kgs in 5 months.

Something to worry about ? Any tips ?

Tony

PS: I know about the variation in meters also...

If your that worried than I would talk to a doc but unless there is a family history I would wait until after the praguncy is overwith then test you know how the body can be whacked out during this period however I don't see any harm in some periodic home testing and recording of the results for future discussions with the doctors by the way congrats on the new one to come hope everything turns out fine

Two of wife's grandparents were diabetic. Her mom is pre diabetic in denial (fastings ~ 110 -120) and her mom's brother is a type 2. So there's the family history....

Is a low carb diet in pregnancy acceptable ? I can make her move to a low-"er" carb I guess

Due to the family history I would test as if she was a diabetic and record the results and then if they were high I would see consult with the doctors before making drastic changes to anything

Dear Tony,

First off, congratulations on the great news. Secondly, since the baby gets what the mother eats & drinks, low carb is a good idea IMHO. And thirdly GD has it's own set of parameters. You could do an OGTT at home if you are concerned. Bear in mind that the OGTT results for GD are different than in other cases.

With a 100 gm glucose load - fasting 95 or better, 1 hr 180 or better, 2 hr 155 or better and 3 hr 140 or better. These are the guidelines. Anything thereabouts should be acceptable.

I agree that you should be actively following this up now and not waiting until after the pregnancy. What the Mother eats is crucial to the development of the child... both now and in later life.
