Fruits in moderation: To help patients control gestational diabetes, experts recommend checking 1-hour post-meal sugar levels. If after eating pomegranates (or other fruits or other carb sources) your glucose is less than 130 mg/dl, then that snack or meal is acceptable. However, your body's ability to control this post-meal glucose will change during the course of pregnancy, so you need to continue testing throughout.
