Exactly What I Ate To Get My Blood Sugar Under Control For Good

When Thomas Rupp was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, he was stunned.

    Were Pregnant!!..but what is a normal reading for blood sugar?

    Let me start from the beginning...
    My girlfriend is not diabetic, but has her whole life had an irregular cycle.(sometimes 2.5 months apart), she was told she could not get pregnant without fertility drugs. So she went to another Dr. and she told her that her insulin was high. Huh? (I dont understand that and i have been on insulin for 24 years) ,so she put her on glucophage which she said it would regulate her cycle. It did and after the 1st time, I got her pregnant. My questions are what is a normal bloodsuger range for a nondiabetic woman and what is it when she is pregnant. We have tested it and found it vary from 80 to 122 so far, do you think she will have to take insulin?
    please help

    Her insulin was high???? They put her on meds???? I am a bit lost with the whole concept. Her blood sugar sounds pretty normal. I think I would get a second opinion.
