Can You Have Anemia And Gestational Diabetes At The Same Time
Diabetes is a disease of increased blood glucose levels. Glucose is a type of sugar that comes from the intake of food. Insulin is a type of hormone that removes the glucose from the blood and moves it into the cells to provide them with energy. There are two different types of diabetes: type 1 and type 2. Type 1 diabetes is when the body does not make any insulin. Therefore, glucose stays inside the blood and does not move into the cells. Type 2 diabetes, which is commonly associated with obesity, is when the body is either resistant to the effects of insulin or when the body does not produce enough insulin. Increased levels of glucose in the body causes severe damage to the ...Read more

Gestational diabetes? 3-hour glucose test said first number was high (203), but the other two were normal (in the 70's). I need a 2nd opinion! thanks!
Yes: Activity such as walking, or moderate exercise after meals can help lower sugars a bit, but women still need to follow the diet, check sugars, and possibly take meds. Don't think that "more exercise" (such as a marathon) is a substitute for the diet/medication treatment.
