Glucose test in pregnant women

Common Questions and Answers about Glucose test in pregnant women

glucose

how many weeks are yu wen yur suppose to take the glucose test? or is it the one they do right in the begining nd yu have to drink some nasty really sweet drink?
I think they are affiliated in that when your glucose levels are high you are susceptible to insulin resistance which is why many women who have PCOS are at risk of getting diabetes. It is the insulin resistance that I think has an affect on the other hormone levels.
Yes every pregnant women has to take it unless they refuse it
Yes every pregnant woman has to take it and it's to test your blood sugar to see if you have gestational diabetes
Also, I have read lots of stories on here on women that failed the first glucose test, and did just fine on the 3 hour. I wish you luck!!
I'm so nervous for my glucose test . It's in 2 weeks. I just hope I pass.
How important is it to get the glucose test done. I have appointment in the morning and cant be botherd to go.
Hey all, I have that glucose test tomorrow, with the orange drink. Can anyone tell me what they do exactly? I've heard you can be there up to 3 hours waiting, and that they'll take blood twice? I absolutely hate needles so this is gonna suck.
You should be fine.. My mom failed her 1 hour glucose test everytime she had it.. And she never had gestational diabetes.. My aunt had gest. diabetes and her and baby were absolutly fine and healthy.. she just had to take insulin shots like a diabetic person while she was pregnant.. Dont be worried he will be fine!
Im 30 weeks pregnant and I failed my first 1hr glucose test, my levels were just a tad high than where they should be. So now im worried about the 3hr glucose I have to take but most women ive talked to said they passed their 3hr test. Is anyone going through something similar?
Im almost 20 weeks n dr. Set up glucose test for next appt. Really worrying about it since both my mother and grandmother had gestational diabetes...plus when I had sono yesterday baby weighed 11oz which according to some websites is above average although dr said it was fine.
Well, my Dr called Friday and informed me that I failed my glucose test last week and now have to take a 3 hour test. I'm concerned because my mother, 58, was just diagnosed with diabetes. She did not have it while she was pregnant. But, I also understand there are alot of people who fail the inital test and end up fine. Can anyone share similar stories and your outcome. I'm trying to brace myself and put my mind at ease. Thanks!!!!
I've never done this test, I'm 17wks & had sugar in my pee so they sent me for blood work "glucose reading" but I never drank anything, I go today to see if I have diabetes, unless they are trapping me & I'll be drinking something today lol they never said anything
This Friday will be 2 weeks since my test and as of right now (I just called) my test results are still not in...WTF? I'm getting so mad!! And yesterday I had a scare, Bryce was not moving almost all day!! I was so scared!!!! I drank ice cold water, ice cold oj, some chocolate shake and nothing!! But then last night he didn't want to let mr sleep =) and today he is going nuts! Just needed a resting day I guess!!
I failed my glucose test. they have me going in to retake it, a three hr test where they draw my blood four times. my question is, how worried should I be as I am freaking out....I'm very much in shape, not over weight, eat decently well, so I feel worried and confused by this. this is my first pregnancy, I'm worried about the health of my baby....
If your test is early in the morning I wouldn't eat after midnight that's what I did. I watch my sugar intake the day before. And all I had for fluids is water. Most women don't pass their first ones I didn't and alot pass their second ones like I did.
She said it was a misshipment from the hospital and that they are not even ALLOWED to order 100g since it's only used in in-lab testing (the 3hour GTT). She looked in the cupboard and they were ALL 100g so i saved a few other pregnant women from false positives too apparently. She cleared me of the diagnosis using the 3 hour chart (yippeee). Just to clarify, it wasn't my doctor I was doubting, it was the staff who hands out this stuff.
( on a brighter note i get to see my stubborn lil girl today us to check her growth and i cant wait to see how much bigger she has gotten
Has anyone got sick after doing their glucose test? I did =/ I was in my doctors office and started getting light headed and my head was spinning so they gave me toast with butter. Once I got home tho I threw it all up (sorry tmi). After you got sick were you ok the rest of the day or ???
15 blood/And once again At 11:15am For my 1hr test/Went in at 8:30 Drank the juice/Waited 1hr And draw blood at 9:30 Maybe you could call or email your dr ...ask him why? Dont worry...do you have a new dr.? I do and I'm always questioning everything he does.......just to make sure...he probably thinks I'm a little annoying lol...but he does everything different than my ex OB/GYN...
With my glucose test which was not that long ago I failed the first test (Glucose Screening) But I passed the second one (Glucose Tollerance) I eat a very very very large amount of sugar and sweet products... Hence the name sugar mama. Since I have been pregnant the only thing that appitizes me is sweet stuff. I do not drink nearly enough liquid and the doctor says I am dehydrated all the time. So foods should not affect the test considering I did not change my diet between the two tests.
all my other blood test CBC CMP etc. were normal too, some to the lower side, but still in range. have irregular periods since always, lucky to have 2 boys. had always some cysts on my ovaries which always caused pain or not and went away on their own. but was hard to even get pregnant. this year my periods come every few months and some of them for 2 weeks slow, inbetween 1 was 1 week very heavy with clots, than my last one from sept.4 til sept.27 2009 slow flow. is it PCOS?
I don't know why we pregnant woman have to be picked and prodded so much. I'm not a test lab rat. Anyways, is the glucose drink as bad as they say? And why are they testing me early for it? I'm only 11 weeks.
I had one glucose test done at 14 weeks, that one came back fine. I have another this coming Wednesday. Due to my weight and family history i get to have it done twice.....
When I did my one hour glucose test they did not tell me not to eat before. I just had to go in, drink the orange pop, wait an hour and give a blood sample. I guess if you're results look concerning you may want to clarify how eating will have affected the results and if you need to redo it.
Anyway, dont' worry about carbs! Pregnant women have to have 'em for energy.
Also, I will point out that they are calling this test an RGS (Random Glucose Screen) and not a Glucose Tolerance Test, just in case that makes a difference. Anyone else here that has taken this test been able to eat normally beforehand? Were the results affected by this?

Gestational diabetes is a type of diabetes that can develop in some women late in pregnancy (usually after the 24th week). Women who develop gestational diabetes do not have diabetes before becoming pregnant. The oral glucose tolerance test involves quickly drinking a sweetened liquid (called Glucola), which contains 50 g of glucose. The body absorbs this glucose rapidly, causing blood glucose levels to rise within 30 to 60 minutes.
