This is my 3rd pregnancy with GD. First one I took Glyburide in the AM and slow acting insulin at night. Second I took fast acting insulin before meals and slow at night. My numbers were NEVER what they wanted them to be for fasting (90 and under), with the strange exception of the last 2 weeks of my second pregnancy, still don't know why. I was up to 120 units of slow acting insulin at night, which I think is ridiculous! So far they put me on Glyburide 2.5 at night in the hopes of lowering my fasting, but nope. Still in the 110-120 range. They always say things like, "The other patients I treat don't have this problem", well,. I am not those women! I have read all about dawn phenomenon and that seems to be my problem. Has anyone else had this, and what was done to help your numbers? It's so hard to find a balance with diet that doesn't involve insulin, which I really want to avoid, but it's pretty much inevitable. Also the diet they prescribe for non insulin users seems crazy to me. I find that a low to no carb and high fat diet works best for me, of course they say it's too much fat and not enough carbs. It's very frustrating to be yelled at because I am not following their plan, but it's not working for me, so why should I?
