Hi everyone. This is my first post on this board. I've had a whirlwind past couple days. Most recently (this morning), I found out I failed my one hour test so bad (209) that I don't even qualify for the 3 hour test. I officially have GD. I don't have my counseling appointment until next week, and then I start pricking away.
I posted on my month as well, and there were a few great girls who reached out to me right away. My Doctor explained to me that we will try diet for one week, and if that doesn't work she will give me medicine, and if that fails I will do insulin shots.
How many of you have been able to control your GD with diet vs. medicine vs. insulin? I haven't looked through previous posts, so I'll probably find tips in the posts... but of course I"m curious about what food combos work best for everyone.... and I"d love to hear some good stories.
Thanks for any help you have to offer!
