My wife is 26 week pregnant. Her 75g glucose tolerant test result is 133. Dr. Said it's border line. It should be below 140. 5.5 kg weight increased in last 2 month (5th & 6th month of pregnancy ). Dr. Prescribed BGR-34 for precaution for Gestational diabetes Is BGR-34 safe in pregnancy? Can blood glucose level control through diet without taking medicine? 140-199 is prediabetes. Is level above 140 considered as a Gestational diabetes?

Bgr 34 is an ayurvedic product can be given in pregnancy. Gct >140 means that pt can develop gestational diabetes. Your wife does not need any medicine, she needs dietary restrictions. She should take fat and sugar restricted diet, eat high fibre diet - fresh fruits and vegetables. Should avoidfast and junk food she should do regular walking (not brisk). She should monitor her bld sugar regularly.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. To diagnose Gestational diabetes following criteria are considered: Fasting >92 mg, on 75 g glucose 1 hour level should be >180 mg & 2 hour glucose > 153 mg. The level mentioned 133 mg is at what time after taking 75 g of glucose? Plus the tablet mentioned is an ayurvedic preparation without any clinical studies. I would never give it in pregnancy. First of all whether she has GDM is itself a question mark. I hope you have followed all the details mentioned. Please take care. Thanks.
