Hello Ladies. I got diagnosed with gestational diabetes last week, and I am really struggling with the diagnoses in many ways. First, the blame, the guilt, the anxiety, and secondly the management aspect. I really focused eating low glycemic index carbs and avoiding added sugars and processed carbs and while my numbers have improved, they aren't at goal. I feel I need to cut carbs further but getting little support or guidance from the diabetes team on this, and they are now pushing medication. Anyone else struggling with this? Have you tried low carb? Anything else helping?
