Fasting (cut-off: 95 mg/dL) = Normal
If two values are higher than the cut-off value, then the result is a "Gestational Diabetes" (GD). So according to my OB, my results were weird. I was normal all the way up to the 2nd hour test and then I spiked (190*). Since two of my results are not exceeding the cut-off, I am not classified as a GD patient, but when one of the results is abnormal (high), they treat the patient like they would a GD patient. Though, I can choose to start monitoring now... or wait till around 24-28 weeks, perform the 3 hour test again and then go from there. Being the obsessive compulsive IF that I am, we are going to start monitoring NOW! I called a diabetic center that the OB recommended and am waiting to hear back from them about my insurance acceptance et. al. But the idea is, assuming I can go to that center... I will be going in to see a nurse and a dietitian. I will be monitoring my blood glucose 4 times a day and will have to follow a diet recommended by them... and they will be testing me for some other stuff. My OB said, that GD normally does not cause any harmful effect on the baby or mom this early in the pregnancy, so there is nothing to panic about! So, lets see how things shape out from here. Thanks for all your comments and for following up on my results.
About our SUV hunt, we did test drive one and did like it... but we are looking at buying a 1-2 year old certified pre-owned (CPO)... so we need to look out for some good deals. I just don't see a point in buying a brand new car and loosing 5-10k on it as soon as we drive out of the dealers parking lot! So it will be a few months before a car lands in our drive way!
So, it seems my insurance covers the consultation with the nurse but not the dietitian part! They would have covered it had I been a real diabetic! If I want to pursue this further, I need to appeal to the insurance company... which every one knows is a waste of time... It takes 2-3 weeks for them to acknowledge the receipt of your appeal after which they will move ahead with whatever steps they need to take (with no guarantees). What is the point of an appeal if half the time of the remaining ~20 weeks (hopefully) of this pregnancy are gone in these legal matters? I plan on speaking with my OB and will see if there is a way to work around this. Our other options are to suck it up and pay some $700-800 of the consultation fees with this diabetic center... or seek another cheaper dietitian outside the center... I have spoken to one that I like. We will be making a decision about the dietitian early next week after speaking to the OB and the diabetic center nurse (the appointment is on Monday, October 26th)! I don't wish to take this lightly... diabetes runs in my family and with PCOS, I am at a higher risk of having a proper GD!
