The goal of treatment of gestational diabetes is to maintain blood glucose at the desired level and this is achieved through the implementation of a plan of diet and changes in lifestyle , including physical activity and treating insulin . The benefits of treatment of gestational diabetes mellitus are well documented in studies in several countries , where the majority of pregnant women were treated with a feeding program and changes in lifestyle. For this reason , your doctor should refer you to a nutritionist , once he or she makes the diagnosis of gestational diabetes.

Finally , before you start any treatment for gestational diabetes, the most important thing is to make the correct diagnosis of the disease with the most common diagnostic criteria .

I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree, And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made: Nine bean-rows will I have there, a hive for the honeybee, And live alone in the bee-loud glade. And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow, Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings; There midnight's all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow, And evening full of the linnet's wings. I will arise and go now, for always night and day I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore; While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements gray, I hear it in the deep heart's core.
