If you have diabetes, it does not mean that you cannot deliver a healthy baby, or even that you will have pregnancy complications. It does mean that you will have to pay close attention to your health and have a solid medical team behind you. Before you conceive, find a physician who specializes in diabetes and pregnancy. Once you do conceive, you must find an ophthalmologist, as vision problems are a diabetes complication that is quite common in pregnancy.

Working with your doctor, you can figure out a meal plan that will help with your diabetes m...
