Eat Healthy.: No specific foods to avoid. As a diabetic eat a healthy diet with general avoidance of high simple sugar intake.

Become more active: You will likely have the same problem with each pregnancy, so in between increase your aerobic activity level and loose weight if possible. Meet with the dietitian to discuss your specific dietary concerns - unless you really just want to eat lousy foods there are usually healthy alternatives. Otherwise you;ll have to take pills or use Insulin shots. ...Read more

Gestational diabetes and the nutritionist gave a list of food ideas for breakfast lunch and dinner. What if I don't like them?

Gestational diabetes and the nutritionist gave a list of food ideas for breakfast lunch and dinner. What if I don't like them?

Ask them for other food possibilities. ...Read more

I'm 49 year old female.my hubby is diabetic can I eat the same food as him I'm not diabetic.

Absolutely!: A good diet for most people with diabetes is also a good diet for most people without diabetes. People with type 2 diabetes can eat almost anything, following two basic principles: portion control & balance. Portion control keeps total calories in a range to allow for weight loss/prevent weight gain. Balance means eating protein along with carbs to slow absorption of the sugar, and prevent spikes. ...Read more
