Re: insulin and gestational diabetes...help asap
I know how scary it is. I had GD too and was put on insulin. Am now Type 2. What kind of foods were you eating also before the 143? Have you seen a dietician who can help guide you how many carbs you should be eating in conjuntion with the insulin? If not, you need to ASAP. My sugars were sometimes as high as 168ish 2hrs after eating when I was pregnant and were rarely below 110, which wasn't often. If I remember right, I was usually around 125-138 2hrs after and my son was just fine. He was only 6 pounds 7oz. at birth with no birth defects whatsoever! Are you keeping a log of what your sugars are and what you ate? That may help too. You could post them and we could help you out and maybe see what you could do to lower them.
