I had gestational diabetes when I was pregnant with my second son. I was able to control it with my diet.
My doctor would like me to go get tested to make sure that it did in fact go away and that I'm not walking around diabetic. My dad and grandmother are both diabetic with type 2 diabetes and I guess my risks have gone up now.
Anyway, I have been checking my blood glucose levels and don't know what the appropriate numbers are when you are not pregnant. When I was pregnant, my fasting number had to be below 95. Then two hours after I ate my numbers had to be below 120. Are these numbers the same or should I be looking for different numbers?
