Common Questions and Answers about Blood glucose test instructions


Avatar f tn 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??
Avatar f tn In going for my glucose test tomorrow and I was wondering if it was OK to eat before the test or not. I have heard it was ok but I have also heard that you shouldn't because it will mess the test up. What should I do?
Avatar f tn For best results, you must be on an empty stomach. If the 1 hr glucose test comes bk abnormal then you will have to do the 3 hr test. Trust me, there's alot more sugar in that drink and alot more blood draws.
7566904 tn?1394767578 I was told I could eat and drink anything I wanted before my test, but after you drink it, before they draw blood, you can only have water.
Avatar f tn I have a glucose test in 9 hours but I'm having bad back pain and a hot shower didn't help. I was wondering if I took 1 Tylenol if it would effect my test?
7559220 tn?1393620758 Im going in for a one hour glucose test and i was wondering what i can and cannot eat for breakfast, i really want a bowl of fruit loops.
2075937 tn?1334887794 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 How do I prepare for my glucose test? My clinic does it as a walk in at the lab. They never gave me instructions for it. I was told I don't need to fast, but what should I eat before I go? I was toldby a friend to eat a lot of protein and all mt midwife told me was not to drink coffee or eat a camdy bar before the test.
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 My glucose test is on Monday but it's in the afternoon and I was always told I had to fast before the test but I know I have to have a lil something to eat so I'm wondering what I can eat that won't elevate my levels I'm so not looking forward to this
7094011 tn?1405459486 I have my glucose test tomorrow and I am super nervous! I LOVE my sweets, and espically being pregnant that's all I crave is sweets! However the receptionist at my OB office gave me my drink and gave me instructions to eat a normal breakfast, drink the drink 30 minutes before my appointment. When I've talked to so e other people they have said eating before you go could potentially make you fail the test.
Avatar f tn My doc just called and I did not pass the 1-hour glucose test 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!
Avatar n tn when are you supposed to have the glucose test, i went to my doctors appt. on tuesday(i am 24 wks)and i thought that's when they tell you to do it, but he didn't tell me, does that mean i may get away with not having to do it?
Avatar f tn I'm 24wks , and I'll be 24wks 4 days my next dr appt. Will I be scheduled a glucose test soon?
Avatar f tn If you need a drink just sip water. That's all. They will take your blood make you drink a glucose drink and then take your blood again 2 hours later. Unfortunately I found out I do have gestational diabetes but so far can control this through my diet.
Avatar f tn So its best just to follow your own doctors instructions, and you should be fine. Whatever the outcome may be, just know that your doing the best you can to make sure your baby is healthy.

Avatar f tn I'm Taking My Glucose Test On The 30th I'm Really Nervous This Is My First Pregnancy How Will It Go??What Do iDo?? Help!!
Avatar f tn I failed my first glucose test and I go back in the morning for the 3 hour doctor told me to eat 3 candy bars and drink 3 cokes today then after mid night not to drink or eat anything which is hard for me because I get extremely thirsty at all hours of the night.will I fail the test again if I drink water??
8650265 tn?1421569013 Before you go off calling people idiots you should look at your wording. You said how do I pass it. Since you failed it. What else are you really asking with that statement? You don't do anything to "pass it" you take the test and follow the instructions they give you to do before hand. Pretty simple.
Avatar m tn I'm having some blood work done that will include a glucose test. The requisition form includes instructions to fast for 12 hours prior to the test, but does not mention anything about tobacco use, and I do unfortunately smoke. Perhaps to be safe I should abstain from smoking as well as food prior to the test, as nicotine could affect my blood glucose levels. But on the other hand, doesn't *nicotine withdrawal* also affect blood glucose levels?
9523089 tn?1414215566 Cuz I recall for both my previous pregnancies that's how they performed my glucose test blood then drink and then blood again this time it was just drink and blood :/ oh well I guess since it's a different doctor this time
Avatar n tn My blood glucose was 95 after an overnight fast. I ate a bowl of Fiber One cereal for breakfast, and 70 minutes afterward my glucose was up to 146. Then three hours later it was 118. Is this prediabetic?
Avatar f tn What exactly do they do when you take the glucose test?
3652468 tn?1367023905 So on Tuesday I had my regular ob appoinment where they weighed me, took blood pressure, and listen to the heartbeat. Then I was told to do my glucose test. They never had told me I was doing it that day. So I had eaten breakfast and also chewed gum during the visit. They called me and told me he results were high, I needed to go for a 3 hour test. My question is by any chance do you ladies think I failed because I had chewed gum before drinking the juice? I'm.
310089 tn?1232485023 You need to check with your doctor / the lab to get clear instructions. When I did the test I went to the clinic. had the first blood draw. Then had to drink the drink, then they did blood draws every hour.
1240706 tn?1331605711 A random glucose test is not a glucose tolerance test. A random glucose test is just that. They measure your blood glucose at just any time when you're eating normal meals. This does not qualify as a screening for Gestational Diabetes. Depending on how long after your last meal and what you ate, the results could be normal, even if your blood sugar is not.
