"Jumping in to reply to Ron about his wife's concern re injecting. You can get needles for the pens that are very very tiny. I almost never even feel it when I inject."

"Yes, my OB didn't even give me a choice with the oral meds. She wanted me on insulin asap. My blood sugar was very high though. I didn't know enough about diabetes to ask why. Wish I had."

"An interesting study on German patients with GD, now considered an older study (~1998 I think), found that almost 100% of women with GD who had to be treated with exogenous insulin during pregnancy then developed Type 1 diabetes post-pregnancy.…"

"I truly think it is one of those things where it may vary dr to dr...like I said I treated with a high risk/maternal fetal med provider. He never once mentioned insulin to me however my endo believes that all diabetic preggos should be started on…"

"That's interesting as I was led to believe that pregnant women typically aren't given insulin. My wife is looking at options as a pre diabetic and she really doesn't want to inject but she is also not crazy about taking the pills as…"

"Do you have any idea what you A1C ranges might have been before the first pregnancy? If you were on insulin prior to the pregnancies, how does your endo think this would have effected the progression?"

"The problem is to differentiate gestational diabetes (hormonally induced) from being pre-diabetic (T1 or T2). If you are indeed on your way to T1 (T1.5 is just a slower developing T1) then the pregnancy will reveal that. From an article I have read…"

"No, 5.7 is the number some people use for "pre-diabetes". Diabetes is still considered to be 6.5 and over."

"Odd, that the terms will be phased out, as I believe that those terms have MORE a direct impact on people taking action than the wishy washy term "at risk"."

Zoe replied to AbbisMom's discussion 'Possible LADA dx after Gestational diabetes?'
"Interesting. They are now calling it "at risk" which really does make sense, but they've raised the bottom of the category from 5.7 to 6.0; I wonder why. That means less people are looking at and watching their numbers, and making…"
