1209036 tn?1299178657 During this second test, called the 100-gram oral glucose tolerance test, your blood glucose level will be tested four times during a three-hour period after drinking the cola-like drink. If two out of the four blood tests are abnormal, you are considered to have gestational diabetes.

Avatar f tn re a healthy weight. It is called the one hour glucose tolerance test because your blood is drawn one hour after drinking the glucose drink. If you fail and have to do the three hour the draw your blood first, make you drink the drink, and then draw blood at specific time intervals throughout the next three hours. The purpose of the test is to see how your body responds to and processes a large amount of glucose.

5609181 tn?1375332372 They will just schedule you for the 3hr test. If you fail that then they will put you on a special diet and monitor your glucose levels.
Avatar f tn I feel stupid that I have heard, read, known nothing about a glucose test? When do you get it? What happens? What do bad results mean?

Avatar f tn Yes every pregnant woman has to take it and it's to test your blood sugar to see if you have gestational diabetes
Avatar n tn Where about are you? In Australia you can have a blood test if you can't tolerate the fasting. I did it with my first pregnancy and passed out in the waiting room and was low risk anyway. This time OB happy for a blood test only. I'd do it again if I had risk factors but it's pretty cruel for women with morning sickness and low blood sugar levels in my opinion.
Avatar n tn That being said, it is not uncommon for a pregnant women to fail the 1h test but pass the 3 h test - usually, this is because fasting rules may not have been followed for the 1h as Kelly said.

590190 tn?1235964426 I had lunch at 12 including two yummy cookies and drank the glucose drink at 3 and had my blood drawn at 4. I get a call the next day because my levels were a little high @ 146. So I'm going to get another 3 hour test done on monday, should I be concerned or worried about gestational diabetes? help...im nervious about this...
Avatar f tn 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?
1490742 tn?1288600515 Fasting Glucose Test,Fasting Insulin Test,Glucose/Insulin Ratio,Glycohemoglobin A1C (HbA1C). They are all test to check the amout of sugar in your blood. As you are prolly aware of abnormalities of blood sugar and insulin are quite common in PCOS.
Avatar f tn 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!
Avatar f tn Must be a bit different here because they do the glucose one at 26-28wks, but you can have the blood test and scan for downs at 10-12wks if you choose to do it, in Australia.
Avatar f tn Please can someone explain to me what exactly is this glucose test all about.
Avatar f tn This test its normal with almost all pregnancies. They do it around the 5 month mark to make sure. Nothing to worry about.
Avatar f tn I was never given a five minute time limit. I was always given the half hour limit. I've always drank it fast though. I would rather just get it down as quick as possible instead of having to keep taste it.
