    I know that Gp's ask for a GTT at around 24-28 weeks for diagnosing for gestational diabetes but after delivery should I go in for GTT again , fasting sugars 118-122mg/dl, pp- 136mg/dl.
    Also how often to monitor sugars

    Do you already have a diagnosis of type 2 ? If not, you should have a test for diabetes around 6 weeks after delivery and then every year after. They check hb1ac levels. If you are still noticing high blood sugars after delivery then mention to GP.
