The HbA1c is a measure of the average blood sugar (both high & low levels) over a 3 month period and it is an important indicator of the degree of blood sugar control. It is recommended for people with diabetes to check HbA1c at least 2 times a year & more frequently for those with uncontrolled sugar levels. Although HbA1c measures average blood glucose over the past 3-4 months, more recent glucose levels (recent 4-6 weeks) impact the result more. Conditions like Anemia, profound blood loss, recent blood transfusion, high triglyceride levels, jaundice, chronic alcoholism etc. In the body of an animal conditions such as water concentration, temperature, and glucose concentration must be kept as constant as possible. A negative feedback control system responds when conditions change from the ideal or set point and returns conditions to this set point.
An example of negative feedback can be seen in osmoregulation; the control of water concentration in blood and body fluids.
ADH increases the permeability of the kidney [kidney: one of two organs in humans which extract impurities from the blood]  tubules allowing water to be reabsorbed from the tubules into the blood. If blood water concentration falls, more water reabsorption is needed so that less water is lost as urine.
If blood water concentration rises, less water reabsorption is needed so that more water is lost as urine.

I knew many other women pregnant with twins and the vast majority did not have GD, but it does heighten the risk.
That may seem like not many women to you, but when you think about how many pregnant women there are in the world at any give time you are NOT alone by far.
GD does not mean for certain that your babies will be born prematurely, overly large, and does not mean you WILL have any further complications during labor and delivery. However, if you lose the weight postpartum and go back to your former size or close, you have lower than a 1 in 4 chance of developing type 2 diabetes in the future. If you look back in my pregnancy journal you will see I was completely devastated with the GD diagnosis. Also admittedly, the thought of pricking my finger 6 times a day, changing everything about my diet overnight, running to extra doctor appointments, and walking a tightrope looking at my levels on a meter all day long made me scared and feeling overwhelmed. It all may seem overwhelming but remember, it’s for such a short time when you think about it.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.I feel better already!

In simple terms, it is the amount of sugar (glucose) attached to hemoglobin molecules in the red blood cells.
Thus checking blood sugar level periodically at different times of the day remains equally essential & cannot be replaced by HbA1c checking alone. She has done her post graduation from Pune University and she is currently pursuing her PhD in area of Diabetes Prevention. Control systems that keep such conditions constant are examples of homeostasis; this is the maintenance of constant internal conditions in an organism. You can tuck into a good biology book, and try some kitchen science, or even join the biology forum! Anybody can potentially get gestational diabetes during pregnancy, more especially if you are carrying multiples.
Only your testing will tell you for sure as I didn’t really notice any symptoms myself.
Normally the body makes and uses insulin for energy without any problem, but in the case of gestational diabetes you are not producing enough insulin and the sugar builds up in your blood and it doesn’t get used by your body for fuel. I believe it may show itself during pregnancy and you may be diagnosed later, but only if you were going to be diagnosed anyway. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.


I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions. As the life of a red blood cell is approximately 90 – 120 (3-4 months) days, the HbA1c value predicts average blood sugar of past 3 – 4 months. Both these measurements should support each other helping ensure appropriate blood sugar control for a good quality life. She works with Diabetes Unit, KEM Hospital (Pune), Just for Hearts (Pune), Moraya Multispeciality Hospital & Healing Hands Clinic (Chinchwad) etc. I couldn’t understand why I had it, and worried about the effects on my babies to be.
Just make sure to follow all instructions to assure both you and your babies are happy and healthy, ask questions and demand answers. Thus, if there is a large amount of sugar circulating in the blood, the HbA1c will be high & vice versa.
If you don’t allow all of that extra glucose to get to your babies, they will be of normal size. Most people will be able to get through this with only diet changes and some increased exercise.
Diabetes is a common cause of Recurrent Folliculitis.If the sugar level is high then controlling it will prevent new lesions.

If there is no improvement within 3 days of this then you will require a 5 days course of an oral antibiotic like Dicloxacillin 500 mg three times a day.2.
