    Hello everyone,

    Glad to see a thread discussing about gestational diabetes. I heard gestational diabetes will only be observed during pregnancy. Post delivery, it can go away. But what I would like to understand is, has anyone taken sugar test post delivery. If yes, after how many weeks it has been taken, and noticed it is vanished. I heard, after 6 weeks doctor is recommending to take sugar test to see the status of gestational diabetes.

    Also, would like to request some details from ladies who had gestational diabetes during pregnancy and delivered the baby. Could someone share the details, being diagnosed with gestational diabetes during pregnancy, what is the diet plan followed post delivery. With GD during pregnancy, my levels were in the range with the balanced diet like more protein, less carbs, limited sugars, walking followed by every meal. I wonder what should be the diet to be followed post delivery, to help with digestion, breast feeding and self recovery.
