High Blood Sugar Levels During Young Pregnancy?
Good evening I want to ask that I am pregnant at 7 weeks and my blood sugar is high, what should I do, thanks in advance
Hello, thanks for the question.
High blood sugar, especially in pregnant women, can be dangerous for the mother and her baby because it can increase the risk of death and disability in the fetus, and can increase the risk of infection and prolong the postpartum healing process. In women who before pregnancy already have a history of diabetes or high blood sugar, then during pregnancy the risk for an increase in blood sugar levels in the body will increase. This is due to hormonal influences during pregnancy. Therefore, if you already have a medical history with high blood sugar or early pregnancy it is known that high blood sugar levels should immediately consult a gynecologist and internist to monitor and confirm the condition of the fetus and to control diabetes itself so that it is expected blood sugar can return to normal. The doctor will conduct a thorough examination, including supporting examinations such as laboratory examinations, ultrasound examinations, and others as needed. Handling will be adjusted from the mother's current condition. We recommend that you do a healthy lifestyle, consumption of healthy foods and balanced nutrition, adequate fluid needs, and adequate rest.
Thus, hopefully it helps.
