What is the treatment for mild GD? I'm 28 weeks pregnant with my 2nd baby (and had no indication of GD with the last babe). My 1 hr glucose test levels, taken last week, were elevated. Instead of taking the 3 hr test I am considering going straight to the treatment - i.e.: dropping sweets and other bad foods out of my diet, drinking more water and exercising more. I usually eat pretty well (whole grains, organic foods, no sugar except the occasional treat, no juice, def no other drinks/soda etc) but I have to admit that I have been eating a lot of sweets lately (frozen yogurt and chocolate mostly) and since we're moving this month (beginning this week) I've been neglecting the exercise. I should know better! I am so disappointed in these test results. I started this pregnancy with great healthy intentions and felt like I was in pretty good physical shape and now because our lives have been a little crazed I feel like it has gone down hill. :( I would really like to skip the 3 hr test, a day of fasting, hospital and the sugar drink are just what I don't need right now. I've read a lot about GD online and here on MDC. Has anyone found themselves in the same boat?
