GDM Under Control
So happy that GDM under control. Basically still eat what i want. Just lessen carbo and no sweet drinks.
- Would like to know how mummies control GDM using diet. I eat very low carb (no rice for meal; just protein and salad) but still high in sugar level after 2 hours when measured.Anonymous
- Hi mommies I have delivered 4 weeks ago. Was diagnosed with Gestational diabetes at week 28. Ever since gynae referer me to endocrine specialist and I saw him once and bought the blood test machine to monitor my sugar level. Has been on diet control and no need to be on any medication. I stop seeing the endocrine specialist since my GDM is under control. Now, should I go back to do the blood sugar test. I hate drinking that super sweet drink. if use the blood strip test to test my sugar level is that ok ?
If you were diagnosed with gestational diabetes already, then there shouldn’t be a need to repeat the OGTT with the super sweet drink. Just keep using the strips to check your blood sugar and make sure it remains good all the time. If it isn’t well controlled, then make sure you start medication so that baby will be alright:)Anonymous
