In brief: Follow a diet
The first thing to do for gestational diabetes is follow the dietary advice given to you by your doctor. You will be monitored for how your body responds to the diet.
If your blood sugars remain high, an oral diabetic agent or Insulin may be required to keep your blood sugar as normal as possible.

In brief: Close Follow Up
Gestational hypertension is really diagnosed after you deliver and did not develop preeclampsia.
So, you need to monitor your pressure at home and see your doctor who may order blood tests on you and monitoring of the fetus. Do not try and 'treat" this on your own. Blood pressure medications may decrease the numbers, but they will not prevent preeclampsia.
