Coming up on my third colonoscopy, I am reminded that there is a stigma for medical issues of the colon. Before my very first colonoscopy when I was 15, I was laughed at by an acquaintance for saying that I would be getting a colonoscopy.
So, you were able to control your gestational diabetes through diet alone, and the only minor annoyance was that you had to prick your finger a few times a day to record your blood sugar? That's just fantastic for you. My situation isn't working that way at all, and it's a big deal to me.
