hey i was told that i am borderline gestational diabetic and i have been keeping record of all my blood sugar but ever since i have seen my doctor who deals with my sugar levels she has been talking about putting me on insulin. all my sugar levels are 6.9 and lower an hr after i eat lunch and dinner and have neve been higher but my sugar levels wheni first wake up are sometimes 1-2 times out of the wk 5.3 or 5.4. my doctor is trying to put me on insulin because im supposed to have 5.2 in the morning or lower. doesnt that seem really exstreem considering it doesnt happen too often. its like she is pushing me to go on it. i had talked to the nurse who was explaining the insulin to me and she didnt even want to put me on it so she said she would give me the wk end and see how it goes. so basicly i dont eat after 7 at night and im fine but i am starving in the morning and it would be nice to be able to eat something to snack on. anyone dealing with a similar siduation? and does anyone know of any good sugar free snacks that wont spike my sugar in then morning? or and to add my original doctor wants me to do the 2 hr glucose test again but the doctor dealing with my sugars says she doesnt care if i pass it or not cause she is still putting me on insulin like wtf? srry for language but im just so fusterated, i was holding back tears while leaving her office

Why don't you find another doctor and get a second opinion in a different office entirely?
