I am a breast feeding mom in age 33. My sugar test level i not fasting is 103 and after meal after 2 hrs it is 100. Since the fasting glucose is 103 -impaired tolerance I want to know can I still continue to breast feeding my kid?

lybrate-user ji, Thanks for the query. Your blood glucose levels are fine. There is no reason to stop breast feeding. Even mothers with either T1 or T2 diabetes are advised to breast feed the baby exclusively for 6 months or longer. Thanks.
