Hi all, I was tested for gestational diabetes which came back positive so now i'm monitering my sugar levels but am confused as all of my levels are around 4.4 even after I have ate, this morning it was 3.4. I dont have another appointment until next Tuesday so i'm being impatient as i thought my levels would be high considering i have gestational diabetes. I even had chocolate and ice cream last night and 2 hrs later my result was 4.2.
Any information would be greatly appreciated. :-D

you might have to give the scale as in mM/L etc
I have a score of 6 and I dont have GD. so thats why I'm confused. My blood glucose was 6 mM/L after 1 hr after ingesting 50g/L of glucose.

Hi jacobsmamma, i had my appointment with the dietician this past Tuseday and everything she was saying i already did as i eat pretty healthy and exercise regularly. i actually ate alot of carbs yesterday and it was still really low thats why i was a little worried. It's all new to me so like you said it'll take some time to get use to but if the low amounts aren't anything to be worried about then i'm happy lol. Seem to get a little stressed out about all this stuff. Thanks

Yeah she did, Breakfast 2-3 serves, morning tea 1 serve, lunch 2-3 serves, afternoon tea 1 serve, dinner 2-3 serves and supper 1-2 serves. A serve being 15g. Even when i've been naughty and had an extra serve its still a low reading lol I try to stick to it most times.
i've had these funny little turns a few times when i get all shaky, sweaty and dizzy so thats why i'm a little worried. maybe i'm getting over paranoid lol

Are u on insulin? I would call and check in with someone and let them know what's been happening. Especially if u are worried

Mandi, you could also test your 1 hour sugar. It might be that your 1 hours BSL is too high and therefore you drop low after 2 hours. It is important to get a really stable reading all through as when you drop low and don't feel well, you eat quick fixes to go back up.

If you can maintain your GD with diet only its great!!! This will significantly reduce the intervention you will receive from your health care provider.
My Ob said that a fair few women pop up with a pos at the first test but at delivery only 6-8% still have GD.
