Controlling Gestational Diabetes

Other Tests Used In Treating Gestational Diabetes

Women with gestational diabetes may also learn how to test for ketones in morning urine or in blood. High levels of ketones are a sign that your body is using your body fat for energy instead of the food you eat. Using fat for energy is not recommended during pregnancy. Ketones may be harmful for your baby.
If your ketone levels are high, your healthcare providers may suggest that you change the type or amount of food you eat. Or you may need to change your meal times or snack times.
