Q. My elder sister is 29 years old, 150 cm tall, into her ninth month of pregnancy. she had a sugar test

My elder sister is 29 years old, 150 cm tall, into her ninth month of pregnancy. she had a sugar test done during her first trimester, which revealed her blood sugar to be 95 mg/dl. My doctor asked her to go for a 75 g GTT at 6 months and the readings were: fasting sugar - 90 mg/dl, 1hour: 144 mg/dl and 2 hour: 114 mg/dl. At the beginning of pregnancy, her weight was 62 Kg and now she weigh 72Kg. A random sugar test at 32 weeks reported blood sugar to be 105 mg/dl. she continued with her normal food cravings, which were a little high on sugar levels since she mostly enjoyed eating sweets. She wants to know whether or not she suffering from gestational diabetes?
A1Gestational diabetes is also diagnosed based on plasma glucose values measured during the OGTT. Blood glucose levels are checked four times during the test. If your blood glucose levels are above normal at least twice during the test, you have gestational diabetes. Below shows the results for the OGTT for gestational diabetes.

Fasting: 95 mg/dL or higher
At 1 hour: 180 mg/dL or higher
At 2 hours: 155 mg/dL or higher
At 3 hours: 140 mg/dL or higher

So your sister does not have Gestational diabetes.

it's not so sure she is diabetic. but i would ask a Dr. about it.
A3Hi davisbk, one of my friend who is a doctor said that You do not have gestational diabetes till now as per all test reports. There are very little chances of developing it in the last 4 week, however, you should continue to have your sugar levels monitoring during this period. Gaining 10 kg is on the higher side and because of this, you must limit the intake of saturated fats as well as free sugars such as fruit juices and sugar added to tea and coffee. Taking a whole fruit with the roughage would be a better option.

Q. Hi all. I was diagnosed with DCIS in April. Had a lumpectomy about 3 cm and it was removed. Am I cured fully?

Hi all. I was diagnosed with DCIS in April. Had a lumpectomy about 3 cm and it was removed. I then had 28 radiation and 4 boosters. I went to the cancer center for my checkup and the doctor said nothing to worry. They didn’t advice me further follow up and I am normal for the past 6 months and not even taking tamoxifen. I am quite normal like others. Am I cured fully?
AHey nothing to worry!! Early diagnosis is half cured. The same thing applies to your case. With early diagnosis and treatment, the doctors should have removed the cancer parts with the surgery. Based on the report they have given you radiation and other meds. If you be estrogen +ve then they would have given you it as a preventive. By the way if you have any doubts better approach your doctor and have your checkup done as a precautionary measure.
