Re: Update! What comprises "unnecessary" prenatal care?

Gestational diabetes has NOTHING to do with diet, it is completely hormone related. FYI, you can have a perfect diet and still have issues with it regardless, that is why they do the glucose tolerance test, it's not about what you eat it's about how your hormones get in the way of your insulin

ETA: I know this because I have it, I was diagnosed at 12 weeks based on my blood draws and have researched the hell out of it, it can be diet controlled but it is something that I would say is a bad idea to completely skip the testing on.
