Diet menu for gestational diabetes

Common Questions and Answers about Diet menu for gestational diabetes


97615 tn?1212682189 I have just recently been diagnosed w/ gestational diabetes. I know its only temporary but I have some questions while I am dealing w/ this. My heart goes out to all that have it. Although it runs in my family and I watch my grandma taking care of it I never realized how serious it can be and how hard to maintain til it came to be my illness. I am having trouble w/ the eating part.
97615 tn?1212682189 I just had my baby and had gestational diabetes. I ate a bowl of cereal (rice krispies) for breakfast with a piece of toast. OR 2 eggs and toast. For lunch I usually ate a sandwich with meat and cheese and a few chips. For dinner I ate whatever we made but just one helping. For snacks between meals I ate nuts and cashews. My blood sugar was totally fine using that diet. I only drank tea, water, or diet soda. The only time my blood sugars were high was when I ate out at restaurants.
Avatar f tn Do any of you ladies have gestational diabetes or have had it before in the past? This is my first child and I am frantic at this point to hear i have gestational diabetes. Devastating news to me. How did you guys handle this type of news?
1399124 tn?1401023604 This is my second pregnancy with gestational diabetes. I am on a very strict diet that my local diabetes education class provided and monitor my sugar 4 times a day. I have just started on a medication at night. For some of us the further along you are the more insulin resistance you have.
279230 tn?1259927503 Had a dr's appointment yesterday to get results of bloodwork and my glucose test. I have gestational diabetes. My blood pressure is also still rising (160-90 yesterday). I also have low potassium and elevated creatine. He gave me a prescription for potassium and now I have to monitor blood sugar and blood pressure at home and be on a diabetic diet. I also have to see him once a week now. On the plus side, I do get to have more ultrasounds now, and the baby looked fine yesterday.
Avatar n tn Definitely read up on gestational diabetes (do an search online, there are many good sites, including the American Diabetes Association and National Institutes of Health) and if you possibly can, go with your wife to her appointment for her diabetes education. With a consistent carbohydrate diet and exercise, your wife's gestational diabetes can be controlled and the risks to her and the baby minimized. Best wishes to you and your family.
Avatar f tn He gave me a controlled diet menu and wants me to go by that for 1 week to see if my sugars come down, but that is the diet I have been following for 3 months now because in my heart I new I was diabetic. So my question is I am 24 weeks and could I have damaged my baby with my blood sugars being in the 140's 2 hours after a meal. I think I have been diabetic from the beginning but those stupid nurses said I was ok.
Avatar n tn I also take the medication for type 2 diabetes. I also take glyburide for my diabetes. I would say that it is a 50/50 chance whether you would lose weight in the long run as the product wasn't designed as a weight loss product. (but I'm not a doctor so your dr. might be able to tell you what to expect).
299260 tn?1304219705 I hope that the time passes quickly for you. ad_06- I am sorry that you may have gestational diabetes and that you have to go through the 3 hour test. I hope that you get good results. I can't believe you are almost 13 weeks already! dnikki- It stinks that you are having so much pressure and stabbing pain. They may say to come in but they also may say to wait until the contractions are 5 minutes apart. I guess it depends how concerned they are with the stabbing pain you have been having.

1013194 tn?1296463081 Although I haven't gone out and danced since married 30 years ago, I still yearn to. My 8 y/o wants me to teach him. Problem is I want to lead, but he doesn't care. At present I am listening to SoapNetwork in back. The person below me has lost a child to cancer and just can't get over it. He passed 11 years ago this past January. Just want to talk to someone about it, bu everyone says I just have to forget and go on with my life. Hope this is worded as it should be as a question.
961574 tn?1520651703 Hi ladies. I know it's kind of early for me, being only 7wks 5days along, to start this, but I wanted to start sharing this journey with others due around the same time as me. I know many of us (me included) are afraid to put ourselves out there this early, afraid that something might go wrong, but I have known so many of you for you long, that I just couldn't wait any longer to start sharing experiences with you.
