coconut water is good... please discuss your food chart with your doctor for healthy pregnancy....

coconut water is good, but as i was overweight during pregnancy, i was asked to avoid. you should discuss with your gynec. as food during gestational diabetes should be taken with care.

Dr.Shilpitha Shanthappa guidance please

Hello puja...
Coconut water is fresh, sterile, and devoid of artificial sweeteners and preservatives. It is, therefore, safe for all to consume coconut water without worrying about any health risk. Coconut water also contains natural sugars like fructose , glucose  and sucrose.. But, You are not supposed to have tender coconut when you have GD...but just to satisfy your craving you can take -2 sips after taking insulin..

Puja Sarkar

thank u Dr Shilpitha...so no tender coconut water for me at all
