Gestational diabetes screening

If you have any symptoms of fatigue or extreme thirst during your pregnancy, you should be screened for gestational diabetes around the 26th week of pregnancy.

After the glucose intake, we will check how your body reacts during the OGTT test. If the blood sugar level is too high, you will be monitored for gestational diabetes. Your doctor or midwife will advise you to follow a balanced diet throughout your pregnancy.
