    Hello, I am type 1 diabetic for 20 years now. I am in third trimester of my pregnancy. I have HBA1C of 5.7. However, lately I have been observing a problem. My postprandial (2 hours after meal) glucose level after lunch is in range of 100-120 mg/dl, but before dinner time when I check it raises to 180-200 mg/dl. This is happening for a week now. Does anyone faces the same problem? Any help will be appreciated

    Hello and welcome to the forum :)

    As you are probably aware during pregnancy your insulin doses can change due to hormones and increasing weight - have you discussed your levels with your diabetic nurse/doctor ? I would be looking at doing some fasting tests to check my basal doses if this were me but as your pregnant you would need to review this with your healthcare professional, congratulations and best wishes J.
