When I got pregnant, I never thought I would end up with gestational diabetes. Never! But, despite being at a healthy weight, exercising regularly, never eating junk, and not being from a family prone to diabetes, I still tested positive. After the initial shock and denial, I decided to take matters into my own hands and make it my job to find out why. Thanks to my nifty new lancet and blood glucose monitor, I turned myself into a guinea pig.
This is what I found out, shared in my new article for the Food Matters community who enthusiastically agreed to publish it. It’s a mix of misinformation, nutritional deficiencies, and easy to forget common wisdom.
