Diabetes in Pregnancy

1. Tips for women with diabetes to optimise glucose levels during pregnancy, and for those on Libre and Continous Glucose Monitoring (CGM):

2. Pre-pregnancy care:

All face to face pre-pregnancy appointments have been/will be cancelled until further notice.

3. COVID-19:

We recommend that women with diabetes resume or continue safe effective contraception until more is known about COVID-19 exposure during early pregnancy, and until routine NHS antenatal diabetes services resume.

4. Sick-day rules: For pregnant women with diabetes, COVID-19 like any other flu like illness, is best avoided if possible.

This short and informative podcast created by the Diabetes Dietitians explains what gestational diabetes is, what causes it, how to manage blood glucose levels as well as dietary advice and recommendations for managing the condition.
