While Dr. Biswas will professionally monitor your blood sugar, she will also ask you to independently monitor your blood sugar daily.
This may require checking your blood sugar four or five times a day, especially first thing in the morning and following meals, to ensure you maintain healthy levels. Furthermore, Dr. Biswas will show you how to test your blood sugar, educate you on how to live a healthier lifestyle that includes consuming a nutrient-dense diet, and help manage your stress.
When diet and exercise aren’t enough, you might need insulin injections to lower your blood sugar.
Fortunately, Dr. Biswas works with high-risk specialists to manage your gestational diabetes. She emphasizes changing your nutritional habits and adding exercise to regulate gestational diabetes instead of administering medication. To learn more, call Smita Biswas, MD, or schedule online today.
