Sage I'd have a hard time not agreeing with your desire to switch OB's he's been causing you grief since the beginning. I don't know if he was wrong about trying the doubled glyburide dose...its true that there isn't definite research that its safe, but there also isn't adequate research on taking insulin...no proof that it actually improves outcomes. Its all a bit of a crap shoot still and glyburide seems to be proving to be safe in the studies that have been done.
If it weren't for your other complications I'd say up the glyburide before trying insulin but it seems like you are really not going to get away with not having some medical management with your birth anyway
and it might be worth it just to get those sugars down and let you eat. Can you switch to that doctor you liked when you went to the hospital that time?
I'm kind of in the same boat, I can't seem to keep my sugar levels down and the way I have to eat to do so might just be too restrictive to do this with diet and met anymore. I'm not sure if we will try switching to glyburide first or just go to insulin since I'm already on meds and it still isn't working anymore. Its so frustrating. Since its not "just" GD for me I'm really concerned that I haven't been able to control it with diet this time. I am worried about what it will do to me after
and I'm kind of terrified of insulin as I really do not want to be in a higher risk group, I've had enough of high risk pregnancy.
ETA...Lifeguard its wonderful to read your birth story, Im glad your little guy is here safe and sound.
