Diabetes during pregnancy

Blood glucose targets

Your diabetes in pregnancy team will discuss individual blood glucose targets with you.

Current Australian guidelines for pregnant women with type 1 or type 2 diabetes are shown in the table below.

Your team may also advise you to monitor your blood glucose levels at other times.

2 hours after each meal:                                              5.5 – 7.0 mmol/L
