How is gestational diabetes treated?

Treating gestational diabetes means working to keep your blood sugar levels in a healthy range, according to National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Your doctor will help you to set the right range for you and can teach you to maintain it, according to the NIH, by

Knowing what foods to eat, how much to each, and when to eat are all very important to controlling your blood sugar level, according to NIH.
