I’m a Type 1 Diabetic and I’m preparing for pregnancy. I use a Dexcom and I keep my blood sugar levels under 140 all the time. My most recent A1C was 5.9.
I’ve read that fasting number during pregnancy should be under 95 and I have a really hard time with this. Does anyone know why it’s important for fasting numbers to be so low? I understand why I should avoid spikes, but why does this number need to be so low? As long as it’s under 140, shouldn’t everything be ok? I can’t seem to get an answer to this question. Maybe I don’t have a good understanding of this…I’d love some insight!
