Thank you doctor . Does she have to take medicine throughout her life??. Will there be any complications during pregnency and is there any chance of brith deffects to the baby .
Yes, Diabetes is a chronic disease.
So, she has to take the medicines life-long, but the dose can be titrated if her values are fine.
Also, if she can control the values and hba1c is below 7, there will be no complications to the child.
