I'm a newbie here. Had GD while pregnant with my son (Dec 07-Mar 08). Was able to control some with diet and exercise, but needed bedtime insulin (30 units at the end).
Then, at a physical in November '09 I was diagnosed Pre-D. Since then I have dramatically changed my diet, lost about 20 lbs (15 more for my goal wt.) and started a regular exercise routine.
Unfortunately I spaced/put off my follow up. Now a year later I have an appt Wed, and I am alternately anxious/stressed/scared about my results.
Even with my improvements I am still feeling some symptoms, but have not been testing since I can't afford the strips w/o a Rx. Hoping the doc will have good news and will script me for monitoring help.
Thanks for letting me unload! I am very excited to explore the site more and take advantage of the support and knowledge of the community. I know my diabetic fight will be on-going (GD increases the risk and it runs in the family) and I look forward to the help in my quest!
