Will I have to inject insulin?

Even when you follow the diet carefully and include regular activity you may still find that your glucose levels are still too high. This doesn’t mean you are doing anything wrong. It just means you still aren’t able to make enough insulin to process what you are eating.

Between 20-60% (depending on the care provider) of women with gestational diabetes will need insulin injections to control their diabetes. This is considered the safest way to manage the blood glucose levels. Please note, it is not safe to avoid eating to control your blood glucose levels.
