    What medications did you stop? And did you check with your doctor?

    PLEASE do not stop or start any medication without speaking with your doctor. Don't hesitate to ask your health care professional these questions.

    And congratulations! What is your due date?

    Good luck at your new doctor. I would not want to go to that same doctor either. I am not sure how medications affect the hormone levels. I was taken off of my Humalog insulin and put on Novolin N and R. Not only that, I had to spend a few days in the hospital because they thought my blood sugar levels were too high. They were only 120-150. Now they are in the levels that they want them to be.
