I’m new to this forum. To give some background information, I had a baby in August of this year. At the time, I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes. I also have a diagnosis of PCOS and took clomid to get pregnant. I was 94 lbs pre pregnancy (only 5 ft) and generally kept my blood sugars low with diet alone (my ha1c was 4.8). 12 weeks post pregnancy, I repeated the glucose tolerance test and my fasting was 59, my 1 hour was 150ish, and my 2 hour was 170ish. My post pregnancy weight is 88 lbs and my bmi is 17.4 and I’m eating a lot, but low carb and nursing.
I was referred to an endo who tested me for lada autoantibodies and my thyroid. Thyroid was normal, autoantibodies were all negative. My ha1c is still low (about 5.0). The endo basically said to monitor with diet and take blood sugar a few times a week, but not to worry at this time because there isn’t a major problem. However, I’m concerned because I still spike after eating carbs (about 165 after two pieces of pizza and even 200 once after Chinese food). My fasting has never been abnormal and is occasionally even low. The doctor is concerned about how low my weight is and even says it’s okay to let the blood sugar spike sometimes. He also says I have no symptoms of MODY so it’s not worth testing for. I have no family history of diabetes, but do have a couple family members with thyroid issues. I’m also concerned about weight because I want to get a regular period and get pregnant again eventually, but I’m truly eating a lot!! Does anyone have a similar experience? Or some insight into what this could be. Is it worthwhile to get a second opinion?
