After the operation, the internal medicine residents  Blood Balance Formula Review ordered to continue capillary blood sugar test every hour. Then, they ordered insulin if the sugar rose to 200mg/dl. When they saw that her sugar was rising up three times, they ordered long-acting and intermediate acting insulin while she could not yet tolerate oral medications. When she could already eat, the oral ant diabetic medication was started. I advised her to slim down and have exercises once able. I discharged her improved after five days. There are so many types of instruments that are available these days for helping people check their level of sugar in blood and keep that in check. So, this important thing can be done much easier than thought.


As the name suggests, gestational diabetes occurs just in pregnant women. This type of diabetes occurs due to some problem in the placenta. As a result, the pancreas does not produce sufficient insulin which causes the blood sugar levels to increase more than normal.


Usually this form of diabetes is diagnosed during 24 to 28 weeks of pregnancy. When the woman is being checked for gestational diabetes, she will be informed not to eat anything for 4 to 8 hours prior to the test. Then her blood sugar level is checked. Thereafter, she will be given a sugar laced drink and once again her blood sugar level will be checked after a period of 2 hours. If the blood sugar level is more than 140mg/dl, the diagnosis will be gestational diabetes.
