"Nutrition is the cornerstone of gestational diabetes management. Yet, diabetes is very much individualized—everybody’s diabetes is different and responds differently to food. In talking with women with diabetes, I’ve learned that nutrition is the most confusing part of managing diabetes. Plus, the overwhelming amount of confusing information does not make it any easier. Can you eat carbs? Should you go keto in pregnancy? Can you eat fruits if you have gestational diabetes?"
