How many Grams of Carbs should someone with type 2 diabetes, or gestational diabetes intake a day?

I am waiting for my second round of blood work to come back with the results as to whether or not i have gestational diabetes.
My OB said she is pretty sure it will come back positive so while im waiting for the final results i want to make sure im not ingesting to many carbs.
 
What is the suggested intake of carbs for someone with gestational diabetes and/or Type 2 diabetes?

  1. Any low carb diet is helpful to be healthy.

    Breakfast -4 carbs

    Lunch- 4 Carbs

    Dinner- 6 Carbs.

    Doctors all want us on as few carbs as possible. BUT, remember, you aren’t the only one to worry about. For something this important, get with your OB and let her (or a dietition) set your diet up. Until you can get in to see one or the other, just stay away from pasta, white bread, potatoes, sugar and white flour.

    Good luck to you.

  3. Hello, The amount of carbohydrate foods (carbs) recommended for a person with diabetes varies with nutrient needs, physical activity, weight goals, and other lifestyle measures. For someone maintaining a healthy weight on1400 calories, he or she may eat around 45-60 grams per meal, with 3 meals each day. Physical activity, work/school schedules, and medications may influence the amount of carbs recommended and how the carbs are distributed throughout the day. Additional carbs may be required for intensive physical activity levels. Consistency and portion control are key for blood glucose control. The goal is to achieve and maintain target blood glucose (sugar) levels throughout the day
