    Baby overweight in ultrasound and Gestational Diabetes

    So we did our anatomy ultrasound at 22 weeks, baby is measuring 24 weeks and is .5 pounds overweight for the age. Did this happen to anyone else and the baby turned out to be a regular weight? I have to go for a gestational diabetes test to see if that is why baby is so big, I am just freaking out thinking I am going to be delivering a humongous baby.

    my sister had gestational diabetes and they said her son was going to be overweight and predicted he was going to be over 8 lbs, but when he was born, he was only a little over 5 lbs.

    I did not have GD but did have a baby that measured large (4 weeks ahead) and had to have scans every 4 weeks after my anatomy scan. He ended up being a pound smaller than they were estimating when he was born, and was a normal, healthy 7lb14oz.

    Newly diagnosed as pre diabetic

    Hello everyone. I was recently diagnosed as pre diabetic. My A1C was 5.9. I thought after doing a lot of internet research that pre diabetes is 6 to 6.5. The doctor gave me a meter and I've checked my post meal which go from 120 up to 213, depends on what I eat, he also said my triglycerides was 471. I have symptoms but I didn't think pre diabetics have these symptoms. Going to the restroom every hour on the hour including at night, slow healing cut, eyes blurry, tingling in my fingers and feeling nauseous after a meal. I know I need to take control of this but I am having a hard time staying away from carbs, I seem to crave them all day long, I can't get enough of them. I never used to be that way. I posted about 6 years ago about having symptoms, but when I went to the doctor he said my A1C was 5.3. I also see on this list people that where diagnosed as having pre diabetes with numbers above 6 with fasting glucose levels in the 120's and 130's, my average fasting is 111. I guess I'm having a hard time believing I'm pre diabetic. When I start thinking this way, I will then say "I think I'm going to go get me a Mountain Dew or some chips". That is usually when my meter is higher, and I start thinking if I stay away from soft drinks I won't be diabetic. But I can't stop, the cravings are too strong. Okay, I am rambling now, if you are still reading this thanks for listening. To sum this rambling all up I know I have to stop this madness before it goes any further and I'm having a hard time giving up the carbs. How do some of you all win over the cravings? Hope you all have a great day!!!

    Welcome to the forum, you can learn a lot by looking around and asking questions. Eating less carbs will certainly lower your b.g. and definitely your triglycerides. We all have an intolerance to carbohydrates and it is just a matter of finding out what your level of carb intake will be and still give you good numbers.
    Well, we do what we have to do to avoid the complications that come with uncontrolled blood sugar. Many of us use substitutions for the high carb stuff, and make muffins, breads, brownies, pancakes and waffles made with almond flour, flaxmeal and/or coconut flour. Lots of low carb recipe sites that will blow you away! Just google them, we also have many wonderful recipes here in the recipe forum. T
    I have never seen much difference between a "pre" and a type 2, except when you are told you are type 2, insurance could be an issue.

    Welcome to DD. The HbA1c is a 3 month average . So if you are having a lot of bg lows they may average out the bg highs. Your HbA1c is in the pre diabetic range but your after meal bgs are definitely in the full blown diabetic range. As diabetics we are asked to keep after meal bg 120-140 or lower. It is thought that bgs above 140 may contribute to diabetic complications. Definitely check out Blood Sugar 101. You will understand what happens to your body when you are diabetic. The cravings are caused by eating carbs and your body producing way too much insulin to push the glucose into the cells. All the symptoms that you mentioned like frequent urination, blurry vision and slow wound healing are all diabetic symptoms. I know you are having a hard time believing you are diabetic but believe your bg meter. Use it after every meal or snack especially the carby ones. Keep a food log of all your bgs and the meals eaten. This way you will start to see some patterns. The meals that give you high bgs you really shouldn't eat. The meals that give you great bgs, repeat often. It is a lot of trial and error. By the time someone is dx'd as pre diabetic or diabetic some damage to the endocrine system has already happened. A normal non diabetic will rarely spike above 120 and will wake up in the 70-90 range.

    Hi Everyone
    I have come to this forum as I was hoping to get the opinion from some owners of diabetic dogs.
    My 13 year old Labrador has just been diagnosed with diabetes - I do not understand the numbers but I was told he's at 30 at the moment. It has been a very rapid change and we were shocked to receive the diagnosis. We have not yet started treatment as our vet has told us that due to Byron's age and level of diabetes it will be hard to treat. His eyes are clouding and his back legs are going. We have therefore had to stop dog walks. He has said we should seriously consider putting him to sleep rather than trying treatment which may not be successful. In particular he is concerned his use of his legs may not return to normal.
    Has anyone had a similar experience? Could treatment make his legs better again or is it kinder at this age not to attempt treatment that may not be successful? Our main concern is any suffering and that he cannot go on walks at the moment.
    I really do not know anything about diabetic dogs!
    Thank you so much in advance for any help!

    Welcome to the forum.
    I won't talk about end of life decisions because that's such a personal thing.
    Diabetes is treatable, but might take months to really get under control. Blindness is common in diabetic dogs, but most learn to navigate being blind. My 16 year old pup, Annie, is totally blind and gets around the house OK. Leg weakness may improve as the diabetes comes under control, but may take several months.
    Generally, we parents have to modify our schedule to help regulate the dog. Usually two identical meals, and insulin injections will be required 12 hours apart: every day. There are exceptions to the 12 hour rule, but there would still be a fairly strict schedule to follow.
    Home blood testing can be very helpful and most everyone on this forum does home blood test. It's not as hard as it sounds! There are videos on this website, and on YouTube to give you an idea how easy it is.
    You must live in Canada, or the U.K.? The 30 your vet mentioned is 30 mmol and is a high number, but not impossible to bring down to a more desired 5-10 mmol range. There is sometimes a little confusion with numbers stated because the U.S. uses a different unit of measure (we use mg/dl, but forum members quickly learn both units of measurement).
    Let's see what other say.

    If Byron doesn't have other life-threatening health issues, then I would absolutely treat his diabetes.
    His age doesn't make his diabetes more difficult to treat - the treatment is the same regardless - getting him the insulin he needs.
    Most of the time, the back leg issues are related to the high blood sugar and will mostly or entirely resolve once his blood sugar is regulated.
    I worry that your vet may not be very well-versed in diabetes from your description of what you were told. That's not unusual, unfortunately, and we can help you get Byron's blood sugar under control.
    How much does he weigh?
    Regardless of how it turns out, it makes sense to me to get Byron started on insulin immediately. That will make him more comfortable and head off any complications from uncontrolled diabetes.
    So please start insulin right away.
