Thanks for the reply. My cholesterol was a little high (227) when I had other blood work done in July. My sugar was 140. The NP said the chol. really wasn't high enough to treat and the sugar was borderline. Had it been 141, I'd have had to do futher diabetic testing. I was worried I needed to be concerned about diabetes (I hate needles
), but I guess I'll just put the worry on hold for now.
Could a possible underactive thyroid in pregnancy have caused the gest diab too? I was only borderline in the 1st pregnancy but I was full blown diabetic in the 2nd.
My thyroid was never tested then and I really think, looking back now, that my thyroid was screwed up all along.
