So sometime in the next week or so the babies and I are getting an insulin pump. (I'm a Type 2 diabetic, I just like to hang with you guys ) My OB says I'm an excellent candidate because I respond well to insulin and I'm hypercompliant (go me). The medical supply/diabetes educator lady actually asked me if I knew how to count carbs, to which I replied "um, have you seen my hemoglobin A1C?" (It's 4.5). She said she had seen it and I must be starving, which is right.
Sadly I won't be able to have juice to treat my lows anymore, it makes sugar get crazier than the pump knows how to handle, and milk is better for the babies anyway. But I will still sneak a little juice into my meals, I love it and can't give it up completely.
Yeah from what I understand, I won't want to give it back when the babies are born! (This particular medical supply company only serves pregnant women, I'll have to get my endo to prescribe one when I'm not pregnant).
Good luck!! Sorry you can't have juice, but I guess milk is better to treat any hypo episodes anyway since it has protein to help stabilize. It's so hard to have to limit things like fruit & juice, especially when we can't have much sugar.
