Hi all, I have had two early pregnancy losses during 2016. 6 months ago I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes (12mmol/L). I changed my diet to low carb and started exercising regularly and the repeat reading a month later was 9.5mmol/L (I didn't even know it's possible to bring down the levels within a month). I was put on metformin and got pregnant again (both at the same time) but had another early miscarriage. That's when I was offered all recurrent miscarriage tests. However the results showed that everything is in normal range - apart of HbA1c. Now following my low carb diet + exercise and with the help of metformin my level is down to 6.5mmol/L. At times I am finding it really hard to follow the diet but obviously have no other option as I do not want to risk another pregnancy loss (or any other effects of diabetes for that matter). But I was a bit surprised how sugar alone can be the cause of three pregnancy losses! As I have no other health issues (neither my husband) and I have been tested for literally everything that is related to recurrent miscarriages. I am wondering if anyone else had a pregnancy loss due to untreated dieabetes? Also, as the last few months I have been following my diet religiously I am wondering if I have to live like that for the rest of my life? Or does it mean that because this diet brought down my blood sugar levels I can go back to a slightly high carb diet once the levels are steady? It's not easy, before I could enjoy a birthday cake or sweets (and I looove sweets) but now obviously I can't. I wonder how everyone else is coping as newly diagnosed, do. you occasionally have a treat or stick to your diet? Do you cut out all or most whole grain foods as well? I would appreciate any input.
