It will be three days before I can see a dietician and a high risk Doctor. Is the time frame safe?

Don't worry. I had this with my last one. They lowered their numbers so now many people are getting this. The dietician will go over how many carbs to eat what and how much carbs are in what you eat. They will then have you track what you eat and your sugar levels. Some are able to just manage it by diet but others need insulin. There is no rhythm or reason so don't feel bad if you need the insulin. A few tips I learned....i could not eat potatoes or anything out of potatoes (even though I was eating the right amount) I also could not eat bread. I could do toast, but no bread. I found tortilla type things worked good for a sub for bread.

You need to have carbs in your diet, so it is important to still eat your good sugars.....just need to watch how much you eat when.

If it wasn't then you would have been able to get in sooner.
You will just need to watch your sugar intake so cut it out now, before you see the dietitian.
