Does progesterone increase sugar level?
by Kamal Mishra
(New Delhi, India)
I am 32 years old and I am 8 months pregnant. My gyne doctor prescribed Susten 200mg capsule from the 4th month of pregnancy and side by side she is giving me the injection Hucog 5000 for the growth of the child.
I am a diabetic patient and I am taking insulin - 40 units in the morning and 22 units at night. Whilst taking this my sugar level increased after the completion of 6 month ie 165-220 (fasting) and 180-203 (random).
Please advise if this is due to the Susten 200 or Hucog 5000 injection. Please give me your valuable advise asap.
Regards and thanks in advance.
