Hi all, first post.
My girlfriend is 24 weeks pregnant and has just been diagnosed with Gestational Diabetes. We live in Serbia (she is Serbian) and they don't screen for it until as early as they do in the UK. Also the health service here is pretty chaotic and you go from one place to another getting completely inconsistent advice (underfunded and totally disorganised really)
She is v petite, BMI no problems, and our diet before and during pregnancy is healthy, lots of fresh foods, little processed sugars or anything like that. The doctors here want to see if altering diet a little will help before we resort to insulin or anything else. Does anyone have any tips for or links to a good, reasonable diet plan for someone with GD?
Many thanks in advance
