    Default Changes to Gestational Diabetes

    Okay what the heck, since when do you get tested straight away??
    And apparently now one in five will be diagnosed apposed to the 1 in 12, that's a 50% increase! http://www.smh.com.au/national/healt...216-1tbtn.html
    I think i'm going to refuse the test this time, I've been through it twice before and i'm low risk so don't see much point in it really.

    I think it is a good thing to be tested earlier. So many ladies might have 'precursal GD' and with education/advice/help in dietary awareness earlier on not be in such dangerous situation later on in pregnancy.

    When I was overseas I was tested earlier than here.

    I think it's a good thing, I passed the GTT every time, but this pregnancy I'm on insulin because I get random readings which are high.. I have insulin resistance. My son was stillborn at 39 weeks through issues they think were related to undiagnosed GD in that pregnancy so clearly women are getting through with the current testing the way it is that should benhaving treatment.
