Gestational diabetes, or diabetes during pregnancy, is an increasingly common medical condition, affecting around 35,000 women in England and Wales each year, with a threefold increase in diagnosis in the number of people diagnosed in the past ten years. A diagnosis of diabetes in pregnancy can be stressful and overwhelming and there are often more questions than answers, from 'why me'? to 'what's safe to eat?' to what's going to happen to my baby'? This book, written by by a leading consultant diabetologist, provides a practical, no nonsense approach to understanding the condition, reducing risks and achieving the balance of blood sugar that is crucial to a healthy outcome. Topics include:
What is gestational diabetes?
Coming to terms with the diagnosis
Ante-natal care and support
Diet and lifestyle
Medication to help protect you and your baby
Getting ready for delivery
Your baby’s birth and afterwards
Diet plans and recipes
