4 Ways To Treat Gestational Diabetes

Gestational diabetes is a kind of diabetes that often develops in women with first-time pregnancies, and occurs when body changes its way of responding towards insulin. When a woman is pregnant, her cells tend to become more resistant to insulin, which in turn leads to an increase in the level of glucose in her blood. The body tries to reduce blood glucose levels by releasing more insulin, but even this doesn’t help take their blood glucose levels back to normal.

Gestational diabetes if not properly treated, can be a risk factor of type 2 diabetes for both mother and child.
If you’ve been recently diagnosed with gestational diabetes, you’re probably reading this right now and panicking but you don’t need to. All you need to do is apply the following tips to help manage and eventually get rid of gestational diabetes:

Avoid foods that fall under the group type of the following: highly processed carbohydrates, Sugary sweetened drinks, red meat and unsaturated fats.

2. Getting Regular Exercise


Regular exercise helps your body make use of insulin better and by doing so, reduces blood glucose levels. It is important to seek advice from your doctor on just how much exercise would be enough for you. Generally, it’s advisable to just do moderate exercises like walking, light swimming or dancing.

3. Insulin Injections

Insulin Injections

Since your body is insulin-resistant, insulin injections might be needed to make sure your body has enough insulin to lower your blood glucose levels. Insulin injections come in different preparations. It is important to take note that if you’re going to be treated with insulin, you need to monitor your blood glucose level closely and regularly, before having a meal, after having a meal, when you wake up, because if your blood glucose level falls too low, it might lead to a condition called hypoglycemia.


Under normal circumstances, proper nutrition and exercising are all that’s needed to bring your blood sugar down to a normal range. However, be sure to regularly visit your doctor regularly for consultations.
