    Can I ask - if you had gestational diabetes during pregnancy, was glucose detected in your urine at any point, especially pre diagnosis?

    Hi there - I have to say I've never been pregnant, so not in a position to respond to the specifics.

    Have you spoken with your team about the sugar in your urine, if you're talking about yourself? If it is you and you haven't already, it'd be best to talk with them about it.

    Hiya! I was pregnant, baby is earthside now :) I had suspected gestational diabetes however I never had any glucose show in my urine. I’m very sceptical about my “diagnosis” for several reasons (didn’t have the OGTT) hence the question.
