I had gestational diabetes while I was pregnant with my 2nd baby. I was on gliburide (sp). I did not have to take insulin. My baby is now 9 months old and I have been checking my blood lately and it's been high throughout the day some days. This morning it was 158 after fasting for 12 hours! I am not overweight (I'm 5'11" and 160lbs) and only gained 20lbs with my pregnancy. If anyone has had it after pregnancy have you been able to control with just diet? I ate LOW carbs all day yesterday and still had a 158 this morning! Anyway, any advice would be greatly appreciated.
