I may be joining you ladies....

So I thought I would introduce myself if my 3 hour Glucose test does not go well on Tuesday. I failed the 1 hour by 6 points this past tuesday :O( The RN wanted to test me early due to family history.

I am Amanda and we are expecting LO #2 in July! I failed the first Glucose test with DS too...but passed the 3 hour test with flying colors! 

I am just curious how many ladies on here have GD...and if you are taking anything to control your levels?

I know I am jumping ahead of myself, but I just want to know what medications there are to help control GD.

 

TIA ladies....and GL to you all!

Re: I may be joining you ladies....

  • GL and hopefully you'll pass!  Why did they do the test so early, do you know?  I'm just diet-controlled and hope to stay that way, so I can't help with the meds.

    ETA:  Oh duh, you said family history!  I have a family history too and passed just fine with DS (didn't have to do 3 hr.), but they never made me test early.

  • I just got diagnosed today with GD after I failed the 3 hour :(

    I also have a family history on both sides so I'm hoping a diet change will be enough.  I'm worried for how this is all going to play out.

    I wish you luck on your test.

  • I just barely failed my 3 hour, 5 points on the 2nd hour and 2 points on the third hour.  I've been able to control mine through diet only.  I started to use a kitchen scale to measure my carbs and have stayed with 2-3 carbs per meal and have done just fine.  My growth ultrasound earlier this week shows my LO is perfectly normal and average.
  • Thanks for your help ladies! I will let you know what happens!
