    Has anybody taken the preconception pregnacare tablets?

    I had a really.high blood last night which was really out of the blue and cant get my head around it. The only thing that changed was earlier in the evening i took a pregnacare tablet for the first time. Going to take one this morning and will see what happens

    If you look at the composition, you will notice they contain Glucose. I found I couldn't take my Calcium supplement for the same reason

    Glucose isnt written on the ingrediente and ive googled some of the other ingrediente and that doesnt say sugar or glucose either. Just my blood was 7 and in 30 mins it rocketed up to 18 which i csnt understand why . This morning it only went up to 11 when i took it .

    They do contain glucose syrup which would explain the spike.

    When i rang my diabetes centre today they said they had never heard of that before and that they reccomend it to everyone but i said something is making my blood spike because my bloods are never this high

    They didn't affect my bm but they made me feel truly nauseous and I got illuminated urine. So I personally switched to seven seas one, which are smaller and I get no side effects with them. If pregnacare one, don't work with you maybe try a different brand.
