We’ve talked about what gestational diabetes (GD) was and how to cope with it. Now we shall turn our attention to a major component of the treatment of gestational diabetes (really any diabetes) – diet.
I don’t think I ever addressed gestational diabetes in this blog. I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes back in July. I don’t remember precisely how many weeks along I was, but it was probably week 14 or 15. Normally, they don’t test expectant mothers before week 24 to 28. However, I had risk factors so they ordered the test early. So what is gestational diabetes?
