7th February 2009 14:22Hello, I am only ttc but I have an ULTRA strong history of Type II diabetes in my family: on my mother's side there's my mother, her sister, my grandmother, three of her sisters. My father has severe Type II, with diabetic neuropathy (nerve damage) and has to inject insulin. Three of his sisters are diabetic, and so his his mother. Anyway, I've been reading up on it and given this history (and the fact I'm about 10lbs overweight, although trying to lose as I ttc) it seems pretty likely I'll get GD. I read a medical article saying that women with a strong family history of Type II on the maternal side should strictly try to avoid getting GD through following a GD diet/taking exercise from the start. Going to talk to doctor more about this but can anyone give me an idea of what they were recommended with GD? Thanks!
