Diet For Gestational Diabetes

I have gestational diabetes. Do I have to watch what I eat? Yes. Eating well helps all women stay healthy during pregnancy. But if you have gestational diabetes, choosing the right food to eat is even more important. That's because many women with gestational diabetes can manage their condition by following a healthy eating plan, monitoring their blood sugar, and exercising regularly. Keeping your blood sugar stable by eating healthy food and exercising makes it less likely that you'll need medication to control your condition. You and your baby are also less likely to have any complications from your condition. Watching what you eat also helps you gain a healthy amount of weight during pregnancy. If you were overweight before becoming pregnant, your healthcare provider may recommend limiting calories so you don't gain too much as your baby grows. Do I need to monitor carbohydrates? Yes. The amount and type of carbohydrates (natural starches and sugars) in food affects your blood sugar levels. And with gestational diabetes, you'll need to track your carbohydrate intake in particular.

    Cabbage and lower blood glucose

    I wondered why my cabbage casserole didn't raise my blood glucose. It contains rice and tomato juice and a lot of cabbage so I looked up the benefits of cabbage. It appears to me that the cabbage is slowing down the absorbtion of carbs from the rice and tomato juice and there is lots of good things in cabbage. Some say it helps to prevent cancer and other diseases as well as lower your blood glucose. Besides this casserole is one of my favorites. Delicious and doesn't raise my BG.
    Anyone else found that a dish with cabbage doesn't raise your BG.

    I don't know about other dishes with cabbage but I have noticed that whoever we have ham and cabbage for supper I experience a low, usually in the 40 to 60 range. I thought it was strange that this happens every single time, tho I do like having something sweet to bring me back up, such as three 5 carb cookies. Lol. Maybe I'll try another cabbage containing recipe and see what happens. Heck, if cabbage helps maybe I should eat it every day, lol. Tho I'd be afraid to increase my carbs much.
