I just found out that I have gestational diabetes, and I haven't seen the dietician yet. Nor have I talked to a doctor or a nurse or really anyone. They just told me over the phone, told me to watch my starches and sugars over the weekend, and scheduled me to see the dietician. I got to skip the 3 hour GTT - which is disturbing to me. In the case of a high reading such as mine - retesting to insure that this was not lab error or artifact would be the first step, followed by a 3 hour GTT to confirm. Nope, just "do not pass go, do not collect $200, go straight to the dietician."
So, I'm thrilled with my medical care at this point. Really impressed!
At any rate, I went ahead and read a med school textbook on managing the pregnant diabetic and started testing my BG. My fasting in the AM is between 85-95, and my 1 hour post prandial readings are around 140.
What do you guys run? What do you eat? What do you snack on? How are you feeling, and have you had any problems?
