In addition to practicing healthy lifestyle habits, you can also play an active role in managing gestational diabetes in other ways. When you are diagnosed with gestational diabetes, your OB-GYN or another medical provider will likely recommend you check your blood sugar regularly using an at-home glucose meter or with a continuous glucose monitor. Keeping careful track of your blood sugar readings is important. You can share those readings with your medical provider at appointments or if you’re concerned about high levels.
