What do I do if I have Gestational Diabetes (GD)
Your primary OBGYN will refer you to a dietitian and Maternal-Fetal Medicine. Please make an appointment with the dietitian first, as they will educate you about your diet and give you a glucometer to test your blood sugars.
Call our office once this visit is set and we will get you scheduled 3-4 days after your dietitian visit. We usually also schedule an ultrasound to check the growth of the baby and the amniotic fluid, since these can be affected by gestational diabetes.
You will still have your primary OBGYN for your main pregnancy care, and Maternal-Fetal Medicine will co-manage with your primary regarding your Gestational Diabetes throughout the pregnancy. You will be asked to send in your blood sugar logs to us weekly by e-mail, fax, or by calling our office.
