DIABETES 101: FACTS VS MYTHS.

My fasting sugar in my report was 108, is that abnormal?
If I had diabetes in pregnancy, does that mean I will have it for good?

Is taking insulin a bad thing?
My sugar level is 250, but I'm feeling great! Why do I need to do anything? I'm tired all day, can sugars have anything to do with this?
Is my risk of diabetes higher after menopause?
Is a daily glass of wine ok if I have diabetes?
Does PCOS and diabetes have a connection?

Have any of these doubts ever crept into your mind?  Let's have these and many more questions addressed by Dr Piya Ballani Thakkar, a triple board-certified physician in Endocrinology, Diabetes & Metabolism and Internal Medicine from the US, and Ob/Gyn from Mumbai and currently practising at Bombay Hospital and privately in Colaba.
