Case Study: Gestational Diabetes Mellitus
In this expert presentation Robyn details the nutritional management of three very different clients with GDM. A 31 year old of Lebanese background with a pre-pregnancy BMI of 23.0. A 30 year old caucasean with a pre-pregnancy BMI of 34.0. And a 40 yr old of Japanese background with a pre-pregnancy BMI of 27. Each presented with blood glucose results peaking at different times during the week. For each client, Robyn identified the causal issues of the raised BGL’s and suggest appropriate nutritional advice. Her cases illustrate the varying ways in which our clients with gestational diabetes may present and how our management requires very individualised approaches.
