Hi, I was diagnosed with diabetes (never confirmed whether I was type 1 or 2 by my GP) and placed on metformin back in 2016. I asked to be referred to a diabetes specialist nurse but was told it was unnecessary and I just need to "not eat sugary things". I asked if I should be using a blood glucose meter to monitor myself and again was told this was unnecessary, so all I have had is the annual diabetes check up with my GP. My last HbA1c back in April was 92 which I was told was "not ideal" by my GP and my metformin was increased to 2000mg per day and given no further advice, but was told not to cut out carbs after I asked if this would help. I found out last Monday that I was pregnant, unplanned but husband and I were pleased. We worked out I would have been 5 weeks pregnant. I contacted my GP immediately and he referred me to the diabetic antenatal clinic and we had an appointment within 3 days. I was also given 28 days worth of 5mg folic acid as I was told that diabetics need a higher dose than normal and so I have been taking this since then. The doctor at the diabetic antenatal clinic said that my HbA1c was extremely high and over the threshold recommendation of 86 or below for getting pregnant and that he was "duty bound to tell me that with levels that high you should consider a termination" as there was a significant chance there would be problems for the baby. The nurse that was there said that they needed to get my levels down as quickly as possible and that I would probably need to inject insulin. I was asked to keep a diary of blood glucose levels before I ate and an hour after eating over the weekend and email them the numbers on Monday, so I did this. I was left a voicemail from the diabetes nurse on Monday (missed call because I was at work) saying that she would email me the units of insulin I needed to take, but its now Tuesday evening and I have been told nothing! I am extremely scared that my baby is being damaged with such high levels and will have congenital malformations - the more I read the more frightened I am. I don't know what to do and feel let down my all the healthcare professionals involved.
