Evidence-Based Nutrient Recommendations

Gestational Diabetes

Pregnant women who did not have diabetes before they were pregnant, and who develop elevated blood sugar when they are pregnant, have a condition called gestational diabetes. As many as 9% of pregnant women in the United States have gestational diabetes.

To help any vegans who develop the condition, we’ve added a short article to VeganHealth.org, Gestational Diabetes.

  • If you have a question about whether it's okay to cut supplements in half or combine supplements to achieve the dose we recommend, the answer is “Yes.” Be aware that nutrient recommendations are only estimates—it's not necessary to consume the exact amount we recommend every single day.
  • We aren't able to respond to questions about which brands of supplements to take.
  • We cannot provide personal nutrition advice for specific health conditions. If you need private counseling, here's a list of plant-based dietitians and we especially recommend VeganHealth contributor Taylor Wolfram, MS, RDN, LDN.
  • We urge you to consult with a qualified health professional for answers to your personal questions.
