Hi ladies, I'm hoping I can access the wealth of advice in your heads! I was told I have GD today based on my GTT 2 weeks ago. My clinic 'missed' calling me earlier about the results, which they said they should have done, and it will be another week before I see the diabetic counsellor. I'd really like to start taking action now as I'm worried, since I've just been keeping on eating as I have been, that I've just been making things worse already in the past few weeks.
I understand lowGI, and typically prefer it for a lot of things, but don't really understand how much is enough/too much from a GD perspective.
Also, is it worth getting a blood sugar checker before my appt so I can start checking right away?
My fasting and 1hr numbers were good but my 2hr was 8.1 (needed to be 7.9 or under) so my OB was confident it could be controlled with diet. My fundus is also measuring spot on, so hopefully I'm still not doing too badly. Thanks in advance!
