Hrm. Maybe I could keep that one down. I don't like fruit punch, but i have a hard time with all those types of artificial flavors and they make you drink so much of it.

yummy is relative

You can also request the jell that diabetics use to raise their sugar. I knew a co-worker who was allergic to citric acid, and she had to get a script for the jell because the drinks have citric acid.

All you need is a pin prick blood test to measure sugar levels. Its done right in the office, during a regular appt. Id ask to do that. Its much cheaper so they dont offer it alot of times, go figure!

Re: Do you HAVE to do the glucose screening?

So I'm switching from my current dr. to the midwives I used last time. I met with him this week and he was finally seemed to take this all seriously which meant that I needed to be seen by the ob./gyn (he's a family practioner) I was driving an hour to see this particular dr. I am not about to get to know another set of doctors. I'll shave off some travel time too. I only got to a midwife on the phone and her question was basically if I didn't take the 3 hour then I don't have a true diagnosis. I explained that I have been testing my blood (4 times a day hoping to reduce that) and I am keeping my levels within normal limits with a very restricted diet. You have to look at my testing numbers AND my food log to really understand that. I do not know why this three hour test is the answer to everything just because it is protocol. Anyone taking Metforin?

Re: Do you HAVE to do the glucose screening?

Hi there, just wanted to let you know that my daughter was born on monday via c-section at 7lb.4oz and 19 3/4 ''. She did not have jaundice or any problems regulating her sugars. I will keep my diet for a while since I think it is good for me. I will see my endocrinologist in six weeks and hope that my A1C will be even further down. I have not controlled my bs since delivery, but might next week again. Good luck to everybody that has to deal with gd, I am glad I got control over it and think that this was in the best interest for my baby's and my health.
