The gestational diabetes class will teach everything that you need to know to manage your gestational diabetes in one class. The Certified Diabetes Educator will design a meal plan just for you and review the healthy eating plan. You will learn how to monitor your blood sugar and will be given a blood glucose meter. We will review gestational diabetes, exercise, prevention of type 2 diabetes and medications. We will follow-up with you one week after the class to discuss your progress with the diet and blood sugar results. The patient may bring an adult support person to the class.
Please be sure to bring your Health Questionnaire in additional to your physician referral to class. The Health Questionnaire can be located on Reston Hospital's website - https://restonhospital.com/util/forms/508_gestational-assessment-fillable.pdf
