From Bedford, UK:

I am 34 and was diagnosed as having borderline gestational diabetes at 32 weeks. Since then, my home test glucose results have been 'normal' after only a very slight change in diet, and in fact have been going down and getting more consistent. Could my intolerance have gone away now? I feel it would reassure me to have another glucose tolerance test. What comments do you have?


It sounds as if the diet is working well. Even just a slight adjust in your intake of fats, protein and carbohydrates can make a difference. Since your test was borderline a repeat glucose tolerance test may be normal. However, you may still have some degree of insulin resistance. The fact that the diet is working well is reassuring.
