Diabetes

Sugar in urine not the blood and pregnancy

02/15/2010

Question:

My daughter is 27 weeks pregnant and has sugar in her urine not her blood. The doctor is a little confused about this and says it may be a liver problem. She is booked for a glucose test. Could this cause any problems to mum or baby.

Answer:

Need to more carefully evaluate the blood sugars before commenting one way or the other.  I would not delay on getting this fully evaluated.
