Avatar n tn m getting the tests back with not a lot of explanation. Its making me a little nervous. The thing that worries me the most is that the glucose test came out about 5 points high and I have to go in for the 3 hour glucose test. Has anyone had this happen and ended up not having anything wrong? I'm fearing the worst and hoping for the best.
Avatar f tn I was told I could eat fats no sweets but I fasted I didnt eat past 9pm and my test was at 10am. I went in drank the orange drink they give you 5 minutes to drink it. I actually liked it lol it tasted like orange crush. I waited an hour then they drew my blood. I ended up failing that test :( I was very worried. I had to do the 3 hour test. This time I wasn't so strict I ate a good dinner from Boston Market a little late.
Avatar f tn Everyone is required to do it now. They just draw blood from your arm, like normal blood work. Mine came back negative, so my little boobear is ok:D and in a couple of weeks you'll get blood drawn again for glucose test...takes about an hr...lame. and then a few weeks after that, they do blood work again...but i forgot why this last time lol cow brains... haha or maybe this lastime was just me because im anemic and my platlets are very very low. Hmmm ..
Avatar f tn How many blood do they take from you and what happen if you fell the test also my doctor told me to eat breakfast before i go in what kind of breakfast should i eat?
Avatar f tn I will go ahead with the one-time glucose test firstly and if no answers I will ask for the glucose tolerance test....and lastly the antibody test. Thanks so much for the info. It would be nice to get to the bottom of what the problem is, so my boy can off-load the nausea and fatigue etc. ...
Avatar f tn I just got home from by blood glucose test and feel really sick and tired. Is this normal? Does it mean something is wrong?
6710217 tn?1386110892 not sure of color or flavor.). The orange tasted like orange soda, but a lot colder and a lot more sugar. It started to hurt my throate because of how cold it is and I only had like 30 seconds-1 minute to drink it. If you fail that one you go in for a 3 hour test. Then if you fail that one you have a 6 hour test. I passed mine so I'm not sure what the red (fruit punch) tastes like.

Avatar f tn Hi ladies, just a quick one I went for my routine blood test a couple of days ago and have been asked to go back for futher investigation and have a glucose test?? Obviously im aware this must be because my blood sugar is maybe to high. But was just wondering if anyone had any simular experiences as im a bit of a worrier and wanted to do my best for my little princess on the way.
Avatar f tn No they said I didnt have to but I failed my first one and had to do the 3 hour one and had to fast for that one.
Avatar n tn Most doctors will do a fasting glucose reading, perhaps a glucose tolerance test, or perhaps a hemoglobin a1c test, which would show the average glucose level in your body during a 3-month period. That really is the best test to find out whether your body is usually maintaining healthy glucose levels or not.
2075937 tn?1334884194 Ahh I hope I can keep the drink down but besides this glucose test and the blood draw is there anything else they do or check for at a 24 week app?
Avatar f tn What can i do to pass my glucose test? I failed the first one and tomorrow i have to take the 3 hour test...the doctor didnt say if i have to fast or not but what did u ladies do to pass urs?
Avatar n tn Im in the UK and it seems the first step is the urine test according to my NHS walk in centre but you can ask for the blood test straight away if your really worried....but I think that depends on any symptoms. Ive heard different opinions on the urine test though, I have been told that its no good by one or two people but then afew others have said its fine for an intial check. Ive had a urine test and it was ok so Im just curious, as it was clear is that it? am I clear for diabetes? thanks.

3100848 tn?1354609913 I have to take another one the next time I go in, I got one at 10 weeks because diabetes is heavy in my family and apparently they have to test again around 28 weeks. But what happens is you have to drink 8 oz of really gross sugary drink within 5 minutes I believe. It tastes like thick flat soda. Honestly it gave me a tummy ache. After an hour they draw blood and that's the test.
Avatar f tn I am 29 weeks today. I had to have a glucose test done early since im a bit overweight.(a little over a month ago) Now they want another one because of my BP. If my BP is perfect with meds, why do I have to do another glucose?
Avatar f tn Coming from a lab tech who hands them's best not to change your diet before the test, the change can affect the results in the end and the taste...well depends on which type and amount you get because they range from a really sugary drink to syrup like, that is what I've been told. Hope this helps!
Avatar f tn I have my glucose test in a few weeks and myidwife said I have to fast as from 8pm the night before and that im only allowed to drink water
Avatar f tn So tomorrow morning I'm taking the glucose test. From what I've been told , I heard you just have to drink something and it makes you sick. Had anyone taken it? How was it? My best friend told me it made her sleepy for that rest of the day.
