So had my diabetes education session with the educator today. Just basically about how to control GD with diet by watching intake of carbs, I have to aim for 2-3 serves with main meals and 1-2 serves with a snack. I also got an information sheet on different foods and what constitutes 1 serve. So I have to monitor blood sugar levels 4 times a day, did one while I was there which was 2 hours post breakfast and it was normal, same with my level after lunch. The educator thinks it's unlikely that I will need insulin. So all in all not 2 bad. It's just annoying cos if I feel the need for a snack I have to wait until after the 2 hour gap after my meal when I have taken my blood sugar (not that I really snack much though anyway).
Speaking of packing bags for the hospital, I guess it's something I should really make a start on too.
