Last night my dr rang me and told me I have gestational diabetes. I have to take my BSL first thing in the morning and 2 hours after every meal. I understand that. What I have no idea about is what foods I am meant to eat. I know the basics avoid sugary things and high fat things. I won't get to see a dr until next Thursday and am not sure about a dietition. So can anyone help with some info or give me some sample daily menu plans that you follow.
I got my monitor this afternoon and tested my BSL (it was at about 5ish I had lunch at 1pm and I had had a banana about 20 minutes earlier) it was 7.1 that's to high isn't it? How do I get it down? I am so confused.
Thanks for your help.
