Dietary Recommendations For Gestational Diabetes

Diabetes diagnosed during pregnancy is called gestational diabetes. Gestational diabetes occurs in about 7 percent of all pregnancies. It usually arises in the second half of pregnancy and goes away as soon as the baby is born. However, if gestational diabetes is not treated, you may experience complications. The first step in treating gestational diabetes is to modify your diet to help keep your blood sugar level in the normal range, while still eating a healthy diet. Most women with well-controlled blood sugar deliver healthy babies without any complications. One way of keeping your blood sugar levels in normal range is by monitoring the amount of carbohydrates in your diet. Carbohydrate foods digest and turn into blood glucose (a type of sugar). Glucose in the blood is necessary because it is the fuel for your body and nourishment your baby receives from you. However, it's important that glucose levels stay within target.

    Today while I was set up selling my honey a lady that works at the Truckstop where I sell at on Saturdays came and bought a pint jar of honey. She told me she had diabetes but had looked it up online if she could eat raw honey. I told her I honestly wasn’t sure, because it is a form of sugar, albeit healthier, but a sugar none-the-less. I asked her if she trusted her google site as I didn’t want to be blamed should she eat too much of it, but she assured me that if she ate it in moderation she would be fine. Since I see her once a week, is there anyone who could provide me with recipes she could use honey in that wouldn’t send her into a coma?

    I would not recommend any recipe to a Diabetic they need to know that information for their own safety not only that there are 3 kinds of Diabetes each one has different acceptable levels of amount of honey that they can ingest. Just tell them to “google” what is or would be the best for them and the type of Diabetes they have and of course check with you Doctor and ask him/her for a his/her opinion. I would think they would be advised to see a dietitian and then told to make sure they monitor their blood sugar levels.

    It may be slightly better than sucrose, because of the different sugars metabolizing at different rates, but it’s still mostly sugar.
