Taking a blood test for gestational diabetes

To detect and see the evolution of gestational diabetes, we will check your blood sugar level by taking blood samples.

Gestational diabetes is one of the joys of pregnancy. It is caused by fluctuations in blood sugar levels during pregnancy and is detected with a test called OGTT (Oral Glucose Tolerance Test) at 26 weeks of pregnancy. If the blood test confirms gestational diabetes, you will be advised to follow a balanced diet.

Regular blood sugar checks will be done during your pregnancy.
