Hello everyone! I have been posting on the Ulcerative Colitis board for a couple months. I've been battling that for a year.
However, during my last pregnancy almost 2 1/2 years ago, I developed gestational diabetes. After the birth of my child, I have lost about 30 pounds but lately- the past couple months I haven't been eating so well due to my ulcerative colitis. The diabetes went away right after her birth.
Monday, I went to the doctor for a bladder infection. When they checked my urine, there was sugar in it. I had not had breakfast and had been drinking lots and lots of cranberry juice that day and the night prior.
They did a blood test and I am getting the results later. I went ahead on my own and took my fasting sugar this morning at it was 175!!! That said, I had so much junk and sugar last night at a 4th BBQ.
I am really worried about this. I am 5'5", 146 pounds and 34.
Any suggestions? Do you think this might be pre diabetes or type 2? Can I try to get this under control with diet and exercise?
Thanks for any help/advice!
