    Hi I’m having a rough time bringing my sugar levels to 5.8 .. they r mostly at 6.4-6.8 fasting
    And after meals range between 6.4-8.8
    Very rarely it reads 5.8 ..
    please give me advice how to bring them to control

    I’m 4 weeks pregnant now and I am on metformin 500 mg 3 times a day

    Hi @Insulinresistancepreggers,
    Have you spoken with your diabetes specialist and DSN for their advice?
    We are not qualified to give medical advice as such.
    If you have been prescribed a diet then we may be able to suggest recipes and foods that might help!!
    Best Wishes.

    Have you had a diabetes diagnosis? Are you Type 2? Did you have an oral glucose tolerance test when you became pregnant?
