Hi Your GTT values suggestive of gestational diabetes mellitus. Hence you need to be started on diabetic diet. If blood sugar levels remain high despite diabetic diet, then you may need to be started on medications to reduce sugar level. Diabetic diet includes-Carbohydrates especially the one with high fibre content. Whole grains are high in fiber, so choosing brown rice and whole grain bread instead of white bread and rice. Take a plate full of salad before your meals. Don't eat much in one go. Divide into 3 major and 3 minor meals. Avoid food and drinks with high sugar levels like sweets, cake,soda, cold drinks etc.
