I was diagnosed with GD about 4 weeks ago now (it's still new to me :)) and today was put on Glyburide. My fasting sugars are consistantly high and breakfast is more often than not high even when I have something lower carb. I guess I would just like stories about this med. Has it been affective for ladies? Have you ever bottomed out on it? My OB said it won't bottom me out and I don't need to wake up to check a 2 AM sugar...thoughts on this? I'm just nervous to take any kind of medicine like this (I would be really nervous with insulin too) Annnnd for the ladies that were on it and have delivered...how long did you stay on it after baby was born?
TIA for the information! I love coming on here and reading your GD stories because I've really had a hard time with this diagnosis and it just makes me feel not so alone when I hear other ladies talk about how excited they are to drink milk and not worry about their sugars. :)
