How can I control my sugar levels in gestational diabetes?

Q: I am 32 weeks pregnant and have gestational diabetes. My Doctor has asked me to keep my blood sugar levels under 105 fasting and 120 two hours after meals. My fasting sugar was under control and rest was under 140 but more than 120. I have been prescribed Glyburide with breakfast. Please suggest some food items or dishes so that I can keep my sugar levels under control.

A:Glyburide is not advised during pregnancy. As per your blood sugar, you should simply split your meals into 6-8 parts. Avoid direct sugar if possible. I am sure without drugs your blood sugar will be controlled, however, monitor it regularly throughout pregnancy. If required, then insulin is the answer.
