Hi, I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes at 28 weeks and since then i have been making a lot of changes to my diet to cut down on my sugar intake. I'm on insulin 8 units before every meal and 6 units of the slow release one at bedtime but it hasn't made a difference to my blood glucose levels. For example, this morning the reading before breakfast was 7 and 1 hour afterwards it went up to 20! I should say I'm 31 weeks now and my insulin units have been increased slowly since being diagnosed. I'm beginning to get frustrated because nothing I'm doing is making a difference to my blood sugar levels. Just wondering if anyone else has had this happened to them and how much insulin was required to get their levels into a healthy range. I'm lucky at the moment my baby is average weight and the fluid isn't too much either.
