Health Tip: Your Diet's Role in Gestational Diabetes

How a meal plan may help

(HealthDay News) -- Gestational diabetes is first diagnosed while a woman is pregnant.

The U.S. National Diabetes Information Clearinghouse says dietary changes may be key to managing the disease. The agency offers these examples of what a gestational diabetes meal plan may include:

  • Restricting sweets.
  • Eating three small meals each day, with one-to-three snacks in between.
  • Watching the amount of carbohydrates that you eat, and when you eat them.
  • Increasing fiber intake by eating more fruits, vegetables and whole grains.
