I never did the 3 hour test but I failed the one hour one and then a week later they retested me and just drew blood and I passed that one but my Dr said I was still diabetic and needed insulin asap I don't know why!
The only time my blood was taken was when I chose to have a test done in which they drawl blood to see if I was a carrier for something (I don't remember..lol..probably bc it was neg!) and when I had my glucose test done. But I'm 34 weeks and 4 days so I'm not too sure in how everything else works just quite yet..sorry wish I knew more!
Since hypothyroid symptoms correlate best with the Free T3 test and don't correlate with Free T4 and TSH, I suggest that you should get tested for Free T3 and also Reverse T3 as well. Even though your FT4 and TSH are midrange, that is not enough info to conclude that your thyroid hormone levels are adequate. If the doctor resists testing for Free T3 and Reverse T3, just insist on it and don't take no for an answer.
I'm a novice when it comes to diabetes so I could use some help. I'm on 2.5mg of Glipizide and have been for about four years. My doctor discourages blood glucose testings -- says that's only necessary if I were on insulin. However, I will occasionally check my blood sugar -- maybe once or twice a month or if I'm not feeling well.
I checked it on Sunday and found it was running somewhat high.
Recently I have been suffering from anxiety attacks and light headedness. Done a fasting blood sugar test and it seems I have high blood sugar levels. Than this be the result of my anxiety attacks

Had about 10 viles of blood taken which I gather is normal the first time. They also had be do an hour bloodglucosetest done which I thought was done later in pregnancy. So today I had to go for a 3 hr test sinces yesterday my number was 141 and they wanted me to be under 135. Anyone that can shed some light on this would be wonderful.
My doc just called and I did not pass the 1-hour glucosetest so now I have to go back for the 3-hour! Has this happened to anybody? Anyone know what happens if I have the diabetes you get with pregnancy? Ugh!
the first, initial test is 1-hour... if you fail, you have to do the 3-hour test.. or that's how it was for me, in South Carolina.. maybe some places are different? not sure.
I failed the 1-hour, took the 3-hour, and passed.
good luck & congrats!!
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 ..
He said I could have breakfast like two eggs and so i did maybe that made my test high.....Now I have to make an appt. for the 3hour glucosetest.....I hope I don't have gestational diabetes that scares me....I have never had that with my other pregnancies....I'm scared! What happenes when you do have diabetes? Does it go away after birth? What should I do before taking this other test? Can someone advise?
I'm so pissed my doctor sent to do a blood glucose test gave me instructions not to fast and now that I got here the nurse told me I have to fast for it to be correct... like what the f***... has anyone had to take that 3 hours test cause of not fasting??
Before leaving her doctors office your mother should have gotten a wealth of printed information on how to control and manage her diabetes. A list of recommended home glucose test meters should have been part of that package.
s products are non-formulary and do not qualify for a copay anymore and are not a preferred company. Instead, they told us to call them and get a new free Accu-Chek Compact blood tester whose strips are covered (this year).
Is the Accu-Chek Compact brand by Roche any better or worse than One Touch Ultra? It looks almost twice the size and heavier. And uses a drum-strip dispensing device that holds 17 strips - way too automated for my taste (too much to go wrong).
I just got some bloodtest readings back, and I wanted to see if there was anything that should concern me about my liver health or if it is all in my head from "googling" too much.
I do drink daily, white wine generally, and I do not eat a "great diet" (definitely more carbs then protein), but I do try to drink enough water throughout the day and rarely drink without food in my stomach (as it is around dinner after work), and get a "green" with every meal.
It's okay that you posted here since you mentioned the possibility of having hyperthyroidism and we are a thyroid community... You could also try posting your question in the Women's Health community, as they will know more about current birth control substances than I do since it's been 40+ yrs since I tried to take them. You could also post in the Diabetes community.
