Well after talking to the American Diabetes Association I found out that the A1C level they ran after my 1st prenatal was to diagnose type 2 diabetes and according to that I AM NOT A DIABETIC! Also that Gestational Diabetes can not be diagnosed with the A1C, that it can only be diagnosed with an Oral Glucose Tolerance test. They recommended that I seek a second opinion as soon as possible as I should not have been put on insulin at 10 weeks... Now to find a new set of doctors.

My father thinks I should file a malpractice suit against both sets of doctors, my regualr OB and the diabetic OB.

Scary to think that the specialist didn't question the test.  Good luck finding the care you need.
