I had a raised GTT a few days ago and was given a BM machine yesterday. I have been told to take my BM before each meal and 1 hour afterwards. I have to keep a food diary and wait for an appt to see the dietician. Pre meal readings should be below 5.9mmols and 1 hour post should be less than 7.8mmols. I really have no idea what I am supposed to be doing except avoid obvious high in sugar foods and to swap all white carbs to brown.
I just don't know what to eat or when. What snacks to have. I don't really eat meat - especially since becoming pregnant as I seem to have an aversion to it. I also don't like eggs. So in struggling with my protein - as I have been told to eat more of it.
I'd be grateful for any advice or food ideas anyone could give me.
