Should I change my diet if I am pregnant and have diabetes?

ANSWER

Changing what and how you eat will help you avoid problems with your blood sugar levels if you are pregnant.

You'll also need to include more calories for your growing baby. Your doctor or diabetes educator can help you figure out how to do that safely.
