  • Doyou have gestational or just plain old diabetes? I think if it went down you should be okay not to call right now but I would mention it to your dr next apt. If it doesnt go back down though I would call after hours.

  • I dont think you should try and get a sooner appt, im pregnant and on a carb diet. So just make sure you dont eat alot of carbs?

  • Your BSL will usually go up after eating that is normal, But that is quite high normal levels should be 100-110 but if you have been known to have problems then it could be as high as 130. I would let your Dr. Know that it reached 200. That could be dangerous. FYI your level should peak 30-45 mins after eating and should start to fall by the hour after.
