47 year old female
“Back when I was pregnant with Hannah, the doctor told me I hadgestational diabetes but said I shouldn’t worry about it. He said Ididn’t need any medication, and I don’t remember changing my diet.In fact, I just kept eating whatever I wanted, and by the timeHannah was born, I had gained 60 pounds. I never did lose all thatextra weight.”
Your thoughts on this case;
What information would have been important for this woman whileshe was pregnant? Is it common for women with gestational diabetesto develop type 2 diabetes later on?
Recommend a days meal plan that she should have been on whilepregnant.
