Transcript of "Sample Diet Plan For Gestational Diabetic Patient"

  1. 1. • Gestational Diabetes is a temporary condition during pregnancy when the mother’s body cannot maintain normal blood sugar levels. • Large amount of sugar accumulates in the blood when the body is unable to produce insulin. • This can be harmful for both the mother and baby. • It is important during pregnancy that the expectant mother maintains healthy blood sugar levels.
  2. 2. • The recommended fasting glucose should be less than 130 milligrams/deciliter and after meal sugar levels needs to be less than 120 milligrams/deciliter. • The diets for gestational diabetes should control the blood glucose levels at the same time provide all the vital nutrients during this time. • Given below is a sample diet for gestational diabetes.
  3. 3. • For breakfast take 2 scrambled eggs, 1 slice of whole wheat bread, plain or toast, 1 teaspoon of margarine. • The mid morning snack should consist of 1 slice of whole wheat bread, 1 tablespoon peanut butter, 1 tablespoon Sugar free jam, 1 cup nonfat/low fat milk. • For lunch take 1 cup of lentil soup, 1 serving of whole grain crackers, 1 serving of low fat cheese, 1 cup of baby carrots.
  4. 4. • For mid afternoon snack take 1 serving string cheese and 1 peach. • Evening meal should comprise of 1 serving grilled chicken, 1 cup of steam carrots, 1 small baked sweet potato and 1 tablespoon of butter. • For bedtime snack take 6 crackers, 1 serving cheese, 1 cup low fat milk.
  5. 5. • Include plenty of fluid in your diet in the form of vegetable and fruit juices. Try not to drink them alone but to take them with meals and snacks. • Don’t skip meals. Have small frequent meals throughout the day which support the stabilization of healthy blood glucose much better than one or two large meals. • Avoid intake of simple sugars such as white table sugar, honey, jams, maple syrup, candy, non-diet soft drinks.
  6. 6. • Take a well balanced diet high on fiber such as fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grain products and cereals. • Avoid sweet chutneys, oily pickles, ready-to-eat foods that contain high levels of sodium, pastries, cakes, ice cream, and honey as well as sweet sherbets, fizzy drinks and packaged juices, artificial sweeteners, etc. • Always take protein and carbohydrate together.
  7. 7. • Take a light snack before bedtime as this prevents blood glucose levels to shoot up. • Reduce the intake of carbohydrates in your breakfast the next morning if you wake up with raised blood sugar levels.
  8. 8. • Diabkil Capsule is highly efficient herbal supplement that can be taken to control and maintain healthy blood glucose levels. • Hence we can conclude that the diet mentioned above will be helpful in the treatment of Gestational Diabetes.
