Gestational Diabetes: Target Blood Sugar Levels
It is important to keep your blood sugar levels in a healthy range during your pregnancy.
|Before breakfast||Healthy level 1 hour after meals|
95 mg/dL or less
140 mg/dL or less
Note: If you have gestational diabetes, you may experience weakness, sweating, and hunger if your blood sugar level drops below 70 mg/dL. These are symptoms of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), which can be serious if it is not treated. As soon as these symptoms develop, eat some food that contains sugar to raise your blood sugar level.
