Studies have shown that eight in 10 women who have gestational diabetes
are able to manage their blood sugar level through exercise and dietary changes alone.
Around one to two women in 10 won't be able to control their gestational diabetes with diet and exercise and will need tablets or insulin
injections although the best option is injection insulin.
If, after two weeks of making diet and exercise changes, you’re still having trouble controlling your blood sugar level, you will be offered different options for medicines that can reduce your blood sugar level.
It all depends upon the level of blood sugars in you.
If they are very high and your treating doctor thinks that diet modifications won't be enough,then let your doctor give you the injection insulin as that will be the best for you and your child.
