Oral Hypoglycemic agents are contra in pregnancy,So they have to be stopped and started on Insulijn.Any way I think MS AFP is the choice .Please correct me if wrong.


  #3

kodu is right.....triple marker screening at 15-20 weeks would be appropriate

never give oral hypoglycemics in preg.

(1) diet and lifestyle mod 1st
(2) insulin, insulin, insulin
