  1. I'm having the opposite problem… Got diagnosed with gd and in my testing, I'm usually in the 70s. Thankfully it's not higher than the recommendation but I dont feel great in that range. Really sluggish, irritable, achy. Attempting to bring up my numbers slightly… But feeling frustrated to feel badly following the protocol

  2. Hi there. This video helped me boost my morale. I was so upset at the thought of having to prick myself. I’m having trouble bringing my fasting sugar to below 95. Right now it’s around 99-100. Will they also advise me insulin shots or just some tablets? I’m still figuring out what to do in terms of food and how to get that sugar reading down 😞

  3. I have been diagnosed again with gestational diabetes. This is my 2nd pregnancy and I'm having trouble getting my fasting number down in the morning. It's been a week and I've been changing my snacks and meals. 😞 I was told I might need to take insulin. I'm scared to take insulin because of the baby.

  4. I just got diagnosed with GD…. Again. My first pregnancy was fine, second i had GD and gestational hypertension, and i failed my 3 hour glucose test on Friday. I have trouble controlling my early morning fasting numbers, so i feel like i can relate to you more than most that i have seen, and will most likely have to be medication controlled for the next 5 months. Thank you.

  5. I was diagnosed with Diabetes 4 months ago. I was taking metformin for those 4 months. And I’m not taking it anymore because my doctor said it’s normal now. I found out I’m 6 weeks pregnant and they told me to check it 4 times a day just to make sure it’s still normal. I’ve been checking it for only 2 days. But today it has been really low. When I woke up this morning it was 81 2 hours after breakfast 74 2 hours after lunch 88 and 2 hours after dinner 100.. and for dinner I ate tacos and cake lol so I now 100 Is too low. Do you think that’s normal? Or too low?

  6. Hello sweetie I’m new in subscribing. Your video was very helpful. I am already a diabetic type 2. But I’m also pregnant I am 6 weeks and 3 days. And I also take insulin but I take 54 units Nph and 20 units lispro. In the morning. 28 lispro before dinner and 64 units NPH at bedtime
