When I was first diagnosed last month (Nov 13), I really had to watch my blood sugar. It would get really high after eating pretty much anything with a lot of carbs in it. Lately it has been completely normal! For example, a month ago if I would've eaten two slices of pizza, my blood sugar probably would've been 190-200 2 hours later. I went to a meeting for my job 2 hours away on Wednesday. It was an 8 hour seminar and we couldn't leave. All there was to eat was pizza and needless to say, I was starving. I had 2 slices at about 12 pm. I did not test my blood sugar. The meeting ended at 5 pm and afterwards we stopped and got something to eat for dinner. More pizza. It was a group decision that I really had no input in. I got a salad with french dressing from the salad bar, 2 more pieces of pizza and even 2 slices of dessert pizza. I tested exactly 2 hours later when I arrived home and my blood sugar was 140! I've been a little more lax on what I've been eating. My fiance suggested that wasn't such a smart idea because maybe my machine was broken or I had a bad container of test strips which was yielding unusually low results. I called and tried to get a bottle of control solution, but I pretty much got the run around and they wanted me to call a different number which I didn't have time to do and so on. I bought another machine entirely (the $9.00 Relion from Wal-Mart) and another bottle of test strips. About 3 am this morning I ate 2 sugar free pudding cups, half glass of grape juice and 4 chocolate candies. When I tested my blood just now, 5 hours later, it was 81. My results are still cons Continue reading >>

What I Ate When I Couldn't Eat Anything: Facing Gestational Diabetes As A Food Lover

What I Ate When I Couldn't Eat Anything: Facing Gestational Diabetes As A Food Lover

What I Ate When I Couldn't Eat Anything: Facing Gestational Diabetes as a Food Lover Whether food is your comfort, your hobby, or your profession, gestational diabetes is tough. Here's what you can eat. [Photograph: Shutterstock ] In the first few months of my pregnancy, friends often asked me how I was dealing with life without wine, beer, and cocktails; without buttery pieces of toro at my beloved neighborhood sushi bar; without the various other foods most people avoid when they're carrying a baby. Early on, none of those things mattered much to me; I was too sick to crave much more than mac and cheese. Coffee and wine started to taste oddly bitter and flat to me, but it didn't seem that awful to wait 40 weeks to get back to enjoying them. My local bar always managed to serve me some creative alcohol-free concoction. (Pineapple juice and savory Cel-ray? Highly recommended.) I took advantage of California's citrus season, buying pounds of floral Oro Blanco grapefruits and tangerines for making fresh juice. Fruit never tasted better: I sent my husband on wild goose chases for out-of-season mangoes, and celebrated the early arrival of local strawberries by eating a pint every day. And I had ice cream: pints of salted caramel at home, cones of Bi-Rite's insanely rich buffalo-milk soft serve during walks around the park. In challenging moments in those first few months, Max reminded me that "at least it's an excuse to eat all the ice cream you could desire." (I never did convince him to ship me some homemade pints of this crazy chocolate number from New York.) But in mid-March I found myself undergoing a hazing ritual pretty much all pregnant women experience: you show up at the hospital with an empty stomach, get your blood drawn, and then chug a bottle of extra-strong Continue reading >>

After looking through the recipes here at GestationalDiabetesRecipes, are you surprised at the variety of meals that you can still eat even with gestational diabetes?

But its important to include variety in your diet, especially while youre pregnant. One way to do this is by doing a quick mental review of a new recipe or meal choice. Take a look at the ingredients and break them down into what free foods , carbs and fat that meal presents. Ideally youre aiming for something thats high protein, low fat and moderate in carbohydrates. Being pregnant, you also want to take into consideration the nutritional value of the meal andchoose nutrient rich meals over energy rich meals.

I Have Gestational Diabetes And Scared

I Have Gestational Diabetes And Scared

D.C. I had gestational diabetes for my 3 pregnancies and my babies were born ok, in good weight. I did take care of my diet and did not eat anything that had bad carbs. Good luck and a happy birth S.L. Hey Eraia, first i want to congratulate you on your pregnancy. Yes Gestational Diabetes SUX big time!!! I had it with all 4 out 5 pregnancies!! and its HARD, but the diet is sooo healthy for you and your baby. There are alot of things that can happen to your body if you don't eat correctly and the babies, when i was pregnant with my 4th baby my diabetes went out of control and my doctor that i had with the other 3 had retired and my new doctors weren't concerned, I ended up having a 9 pound baby boy!! My numbers were really out of control and i was eating right. I told them i needed medicine but they never were too concerned, but my last pregnancy i just had my son is 9 months the numbers were awesome and i had to make sure of that because he also has a Congenital heart defect. There are alot of Diabetic recipes out there that can let you have a pizza like get a whole wheat pita bread and some sauce and cheese and veggies and put it in the oven for 10 min or until the cheese is melted. No its not like having your favorite but i actually started likeing them and eating them for lunch. And if you have a sweet tooth then their is good sugar free ice cream out there. Also i was getting sooo sick of drinking just water, and they have Crystal Light water bottle packets that are sugar free and they have fruit punch and peach tea and lemonade and all flavors to give your mouth that sweetness that diabetics crave for anyway. It sounds like your doing good and having that pizza and being 148 wasn't too bad just as long as you don't do all the time. I know this is hard and your due Continue reading >>

Frustrated - Gestational Diabetes - Diabetes Forums

Registration is fast, simple and absolutely free so please,join our community todayto contribute and support the site. This topic is now archived and is closed to further replies. Today was my mother's birthday so went out to lunch. I ate a salad and 2 slices of very thin crust pizza. I tested my bs an hour later and it was 93...which I thought was awesome. Then for dinner I had 1 Manwich on a ww bun and 1/2 cup of corn....big mistake. My sugar an hour after was 150-130 (twice it measured 150 and then twice it measured 130??)(yes, I checked it 4 times) and then I checked it 2 hours later and it is still at 136. My dinner measured 3 carbs which is what my nutritionist has me eating at meals. Do you think it was the Manwich that did it? This is frustrating me. I feel like I have failed if my numbers aren't under 120, althought the doctor wants to see it under 140. I eat what I am told to eat and I stick to my diet plan. Stuff like this happened to me all the time while I was pregnant, and I have type II diabetes outside of pregnancy. manwich has carbs, bun has carbs and corn especially has carbs. I cannot "touch" potatos...not even measuring them out, without having my blood sugar spike significantly. I believe that certain foods do that to us, it was probably the combination of all three. I would have eaten the manwich with bun and maybe some green beans or spinach instead of the corn. You can try each item individually next time you eat and see what spikes you up first. We all have our foods we cannot eat because they just 'spike up" our b.s. right away. Good luck! Being someone who is still new at this, too, and maybe more than a little Type A , it is frustrating to see spikes when I'm doing everything by the book. The other day for lunch I had a Kashi meal of high-pr Continue reading >>

9 Gestational Diabetes Dos And Don’ts

9 Gestational Diabetes Dos And Don’ts

1 / 10 Tips for a Healthy Pregnancy With a Gestational Diabetes Diet Pregnancy already comes with a long list of things that you should and shouldn’t do to achieve the best outcomes for you and your baby. But if you’ve been diagnosed with gestational diabetes (diabetes that develops during pregnancy), then you need to learn some more dos and don’ts to keep your blood sugar under control and make sure that diabetes doesn’t harm your pregnancy. You will need to learn about a gestational diabetes diet — foods and lifestyle habits that help stabilize your blood sugar — as well as, possibly, gestational diabetes treatment. This may include diabetes medications your doctor prescribes during pregnancy to keep your blood glucose under control. It is possible to have a healthy pregnancy with gestational diabetes, but you must take care of yourself to reduce your risk of the following: An overly large baby Cesarean delivery (C-section) Miscarriage Preeclampsia (pregnancy-related high blood pressure) Preterm delivery Stillbirth Other poor health outcomes for your baby Long-term health effects for you Controlling your blood glucose is important for everyone, young and old. But for pregnant women, good blood sugar control is important before, during, and after pregnancy to reduce the chance of diabetes complications.

When You Fail Your Glucose Test: Surviving Gestational Diabetes

When You Fail Your Glucose Test: Surviving Gestational Diabetes

When You Fail Your Glucose Test: surviving gestational diabetes By Jenna on November 5, 2014 in Health , Pregnancy THE GLUCOSE TEST. For many pregnant women, its simply a hoop through which to jump. For the rest of us those who have failed this test it marks a sad moment: the day we must give up our pregnancy rights to eating cold pizza at 2 a.m. When I failed my own glucose test, I actually cried real tears.What? No more bagels?!Perhaps that sounds dramatic; after all, some of you reading have lived with diabetes for much longer than a few months (and you have my complete respect for doing so). But even if gestational diabetes lasts only a short time, the diagnosis still marks a sudden life change during a time when youre already facing a lot of change. Somehow, I did survive three hormonal months without pizza or bagels and with only a few bites of cake! I also learned quite a bit about food and blood sugar control along the way. So, I want to help clear up a few common misconceptions about gestational diabetes and then provide some tips for those of you who are navigating (or helping a friend navigate) a similar diagnosis. Misconception #1: Women who exercise during their pregnancies will not get gestational diabetes. When I told people I had gestational diabetes, their first response was usually, but you work out! True, I was probably in better shape while pregnant than I am now since having a kid has given me plenty of excuses to stay home from the gym. But while certain lifestyle habits can be risk factors for developing gestational diabetes, nothing makes you immune from becoming diabetic. Thats because gestational diabetes is triggered by pregnancy hormones which create insulin resistance. That resistance can be heightened if you are already genetically prone t Continue reading >>

Gestational Diabetes: Tips And Tricks For Still Eating How You Want

Gestational Diabetes: Tips And Tricks For Still Eating How You Want

OK, disclaimer time: I am not a doctor, blah blah blah. Everybody’s body is different. Everybody processes sugar differently, and different types of carbs differently. My numbers are still pretty low at 31 weeks, and I know some people who cannot even look at pizza without getting blood sugar in the 300s, while I ate a few pieces and got a 136 — still not in my ideal range, but not awful. So don’t take this as the end all and be all replacement for good, sound nutritional advice such as the type you’ll get from a registered diabetes nurse upon diagnosis. But I’m here to tell you, eating like a diabetic is not that bad. I outlined my meal plan back here, but the only things that are different from how I normally eat are: 1. I can’t have fruit, juice, milk, yogurt or anything sugary (like most cereals) for breakfast. 2. I can’t have same as above anytime after dinner. The reasons for 1 and 2 are that insulin resistance is higher in the mornings and evenings, so this extra-sugary stuff might spike me higher at these hours than others. That being said, I’ve read diabetics recommending oatmeal with apples and shit for breakfast, and you could certainly try it, but I’m not willing to risk the high numbers because it’ll make me cry and feel like a failure. 3. I can’t have a candy bar or most anything from the Starbucks pastry case or a cheggnog (which is my favorite thing ever, but whatever) or a huge piece of cake just whenever the hell I want. 3a. 3 sort of does not apply as long as I Look at how many carbs are in what I’m eating and adjust for what meal or snack I’m eating this treat for, so like if I want a bagel at 3 p.m. I can have a quarter of a bagel. Which is barely worth it and might end up spiking me anyway. 4. I have to pay attention to wh Continue reading >>

Pizza And Diabetes: How To Eat Pizza Without Sabotaging Your Blood Sugars

Pizza And Diabetes: How To Eat Pizza Without Sabotaging Your Blood Sugars

Pizza and Diabetes: How to Eat Pizza Without Sabotaging Your Blood Sugars Pizza and Diabetes: How to Eat Pizza Without Sabotaging Your Blood Sugars A Type 1 writer gives guidelines on how to dose insulin so you can occasionally indulge in high-carb/high-fat foods without making your blood sugars soar. Diabetes doesn't have to end your love affair with pizza. If you're going to occasionally indulge, do some experimenting and take good notes to figure out the right way to dose your insulin.Photo by Cel Lisboa on Unsplash Just because you live with type 1 diabetes doesnt mean you cant enjoy a few slices of pizza, or lasagna, or Chinese food, or even...a cupcake with buttercream frosting! (Note: If youre a hardcore low-carber and you can willfully resist cake and pizza every day of the week, all year long, this article simply isnt for you!) Personally, I make sure that most of my diet (80 to 90%) consists of real food, and is generally very low-carb, too. And then that leaves room for the occasional gluten-free carb-loaded dessert (I love baking!) or one of my favorite gluten-free pizzas (white pizza with lots of cheese and red onions...please!). But managing your blood sugar around those luxury items that are both loaded with carbs and loaded with fat means your usual insulin dosing protocol isnt going to work. This applies to foods including: Lasagna (most cheese & pasta Italian dishes, actually) Cakes & Cupcakes with buttercream frosting Surprisingly, there are foods that you would think should be on this list that Ive found simply dont qualify because they do digest at a more normal rate, like cheesecake! So you really need to take good notes when indulging to figure out what other foods should be on this list for you. Mostly, I think youll find that the 5 listed above Continue reading >>

Gestational Diabetes For First Time Mom...

Gestational Diabetes For First Time Mom...

All Communities > Welcome to Circle of Moms!! > Gestational Diabetes for first time mom... Gestational Diabetes for first time mom... Erica - posted on 02/13/2009 ( 8 moms have responded ) Hello, I'm 24 my average weight before pregnancy was about 140-145 which I was told was normal, and I've only gained 9 pounds during my pregnancy and I'm 28 weeks. I was diagnosed with Gestational Diabetes and I'm truly having a hard time grasping this, I take pretty good care of my body. How do I handle craving a cheese pizza and know I can't manage the carbs?! Did any one else freak out and feel like this was their fault????? I also has GD when I was pregnant. I am overweight, which didnt help, I only gained 4 pounds through my entire pregnancy.My OBGYN told me the biggest factor with GD is the placentia. The hormones released during pregnancy and the placentia cause the GD. People are telling you to go low carb. That is not the fact, yes you watch your carb intake, but the biggest thing is making sure you have protien with your carbs, to slow down the absorbtion of the carbs. You need to see a diabetic dietician who will explain all of this to you, show you how to read food labels. I;m from Canada and this is part of the program here. If you were just diagnosed with GD, and are from Canada, you will get a call to meet with the diabetic dietician. Pizza is the worst thing you can eat as a diabetic, and right now and for the next litle while this is what you are :(. The reason being is it is high high high carb, low protien and high high high fat. If you want pizza, try making a pita pizza on a whole wheat pizza with lower fat cheese. What happens when your blood sugar is too high is the baby gets too much and can gain too much weight. My GD was very controlled, except at breakfast, Continue reading >>

Can A Diabetic Eat Pizza & Chinese Food?

Can A Diabetic Eat Pizza & Chinese Food?

A person with diabetes can eat anything, so you can certainly include pizza and Chinese food on your menu. This doesn’t mean you can eat either type of fare with abandon or without consideration of other foods on your menu for the day. Careful planning and balanced nutrition play vital roles in managing symptoms of diabetes. Video of the Day A balanced diet for a person with diabetes includes essentially the same foods you’d find on a nutritionally sound diet for anyone – a combination of complex carbohydrates, lean protein, fruits, vegetables and dairy. A healthy diet also includes healthy fats such as those found in olive oil, oily fish, almonds and walnuts. A good balance includes obtaining 40 to 60 percent of your daily carbohydrates from carbohydrates, 20 to 35 percent from protein and 20 to 35 percent from fat. To help manage diabetes, you should limit refined carbohydrates and mix your consumption of both refined and complex carbohydrates with other foods. Pizza crust usually includes a crust made from white flour, a refined carbohydrate. To avoid causing sudden spikes in your blood sugar levels, limit the amount of pizza you eat at any one time. Order thin crust pizza and opt for whole wheat pizza crust when available. Your choice of toppings also proves important in managing diabetes. Cheese, a good source of calcium, contains some sugar. Order a pizza with light cheese. You also need to manage your weight and cholesterol to control symptoms of diabetes. If you want a meat topping, chicken makes a better choice than pepperoni. And if you add a lot of vegetables – tomatoes, broccoli, mushrooms, green peppers, spinach – these complex carbohydrates will help balance out the refined carbohydrates in the pizza crust. The Glycemic Index, a system that rates Continue reading >>

I Cant Get My Diet Right Gestational Diabetes Sucks

I Cant Get My Diet Right Gestational Diabetes Sucks

I cant get my diet right gestational diabetes sucks i am trying so hard and listening to everything doctors have said am following meal plans have been measuring everything i put into my body and i still cant get it to stay under 130 after meals it is so frustrating and im not sure what to do im so scared i am hurting my son. i am stressing which i know makes it worse for my sugars i have just been trying so hard and my levels stay around 134 to 140. dont know what else i can do I was just recently diagnosed too and am struggling with the diet. Keep in mind though- your body may not be able to keep it under 130, its not your fault. I was told to keep monitoring mine for a week and then we will look at my numbers and decide if insulin is required. I am finding it very limiting to keep mine at a "ok" level... I am basically living on whole grain bagels and toast, peanut butter and bananas. Having cut out milk really seemed to help lower my blood sugar. thats what i was just thinking that it might be the milk cuz i feel milk is good for me i try to have a glass with each meal so now im thinkn just cut it out completely so tomaro will be the ultimate test i hope it works cuz i have never been so frustrated before in my life i was just diagnosed last week so its been a week of torture I am finding it very limiting to keep mine at a "ok" level... I am basically living on whole grain bagels and toast, peanut butter and bananas. Having cut out milk really seemed to help lower my blood sugar. I am not sure what the doctors are recommending, but all the things you mention are almost entirely carbohydrates, except for PB. I would suggest making sure that most of your calories come from protein and fat. Even complex carbs are going to raise your blood glucose levels - they'll just Continue reading >>
