This page is
for my members and I to post questions that can hang 24/7 cyberspace.
Our hope is that someone with the right answer will come along and
either provide the answer or point us in the right direction.
If you have
an answer please contact me via the Feedback
page. Let me know where you got the answer so I can document and/or
double check to make sure I'm publishing accurate information. You
can provide me with your real name or an alias if you want. If you
are a health care professional and have taken the time to answer,
I can provide a link or information about your practice or research,
Type 2)When I got pregnant, I was not very talented at controlling
my blood glucose and glucose monitoring was not a habit. When I
got pregnant I took to monitoring well, and was successful with
it. I hoped to continue with tight control. However, for some reason
maintaining tight control after pregnancy was extremely difficult.
So, I was left with the loose goals for diabetics who are not pregnant.
This is not working very well for me. I would rather test often
trying for the goals of nonpregnant diabetics. However, I do not
know what those goals would be for fasting and after meals. I think
I would do much better if I had these numbers and could test often
again. I think that was the greatest help in getting into tight
control and now I feel I don't have the correct information to keep
doing it (with more realistic goals for myself).
Yeah! I got part of the answer from HappyMamaTo3. She provided
the following link: http://www.diabetes.org/type-2-diabetes/tight-control.jsp
to the ADA's page which says 90 - 130 mg/dl before meals, and less
than 180 two hours after starting a meal, and an HbA1c of less than
7 percent. Now we just need a fasting goal! Anyone know?
(Diabetic Mommy, Type 2) Where can we find clinical recommendations
for standards of care for pregnant women with pre-existing diabetes?
