welcome to healthcare magic. since you already have an apointment with your docotr this saturday its fine, tyour doctor will explain everything to you. you need a special diet plan charted out by a dietician. also she might want to do a glucose tolerance test to confirm gestational diabetes since your present levels are in the range of ipmaired glucose tolerance and not frank gestational diabetes.
