permalink 17 weeks - HbA1Cs and a trip to the endo

Yay - remarkable. My HbA1C was 5.7! Phew. So I've had a 6.3 and two 5.7's so far this pregnancy.

Feels like heaps of highs and lows to me, but I remember last pregnancy that I had a distorted view of my control, so perhaps this is what is happening now too.

The other interesting thing he said was that he, too, would not have paid any attention to the blood screening test in the first trimester. He said that kidney disease led to distorted readings. Others had said diabetes could. I also wondered about my hypothyroidism and thyroxine medication.
