“Repeat after me: pregnant women do not need to eat carbohydrates!” "Ketones in the urine of pregnant women with GD “freak doctors out,” says Nichols, because they fear the life-threatening conditions of diabetic ketoacidosis in pregnancy or starvation ketosis. “These are not the same as nutritional ketosis at all. Put the ketone stix away. Ketones in urine do not mean anything.” https://www.diet doctor.com/low-carb/ gestational-diabetes-pregnancy Could anyone convince their doctors or OBs that it eating very low to no carbs during pregnancy is the only way to treat gestational diabetes? Did anyone eat like this and have the pregnancy turn out fine? I've been recommended to eat a small amount of carbs with each meal, but I'm noticing the levels rising. It seems fewer or no carbs seems to be the only way I can avoid needing the medications. Or is medication inevitable? Could you prevent your morning / overnight fasting levels from rising by eating ketogenic? Experiences / opinions please!
