Gestational Diabetes w/ Lily Nichols

November is National Diabetes Awareness month, and we thought it would be a great idea to end the month featuring dietitian superstar Lily Nichols on our podcast. Lily Nichols is a Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist, Certified Diabetes Educator, researcher, speaker, and author with a passion for evidence-based prenatal nutrition and exercise.

Her book and online course, Real Food for Gestational Diabetes, presents a revolutionary nutrient-dense, lower carb diet for GD. Her unique approach has helped thousands of women manage their gestational diabetes – and most without the need for blood sugar-lowering medication. Lily is also creator of the popular blog, Pilates Nutritionist, which explores a variety of topics related to real food, digestive health, and pregnancy nutrition.

I remember reading her book on gestational diabetes when it came out, and I was so excited to see a dietitian offering a different perspective and approach to treatment, and I’ve used this book as a guide with my GDM patients. 

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • What GDM is, what the risk factors are 
  • How women with GDM are typically diagnosed 
  • Best, most accurate ways to diagnose GDM
  • Treatment options for GDM, including nutrition, lifestyle, and medication 
  • & more!
