Tips to lower fasting blood sugar( 1st BS check of day)
BWG
Hi. I am 29 weeks pregnant & diagnosed with GD last Thursday. I have been testing my blood sugars for 4 days now. Most numbers are within range except for 2 pre-breakfast blood sugars which were 97 (MD wants 95 & below for these.)I have had bedtime snack below 20 carbs, but still notice the increase. Any suggestions? TIA

Hi,
the fasting  blood sugar is actually the hardest to manage in pregnancy.

You could try eating a protein / fat snack (rather than carbohydrate), at bedtime.  

You could also try taking a walk after dinner (may help reduce the insulin resistance).

Ultimately though, you may end up needing medications to get your sugars on target.

Best Wishes to you and your baby.
