Avatar f tn My doctor never told me I had to stop eating before the test they just told me I couldn't eat after the test before I got my blood drawn. I passed my test.

Avatar f tn Not sure if this helps or not but when I had my glucose test they added on a blood test called HbA1C...that measures the hemoglobin level just n your blood which essentially is an iron test....I have been very anemic throughout my pregnancy as well. The tests seem to go together....I think it has something to do with the absorbtion of the glucose...I think. I know it ***** but I do believe they go together...
Avatar f tn What did yall eat before going in for your glucose test?
341551 tn?1266980730 Luckily, my dr's office let me bring the bottle of glucola home with me. So even if I didn't have my ultrasound, all I had to do was drink it about 30-45 min before my appointment then go in and tell them I needed my blood drawn 'cause I'd drank the glucola. I hated the waiting in between my 3 hr glucose test ... so, if you're going to be stuck doing nothing for an hour or more, bring a book, some music ...anything to keep you busy and keep your mind off the time.
1813627 tn?1337722375 Had about 10 viles of blood taken which I gather is normal the first time. They also had be do an hour blood glucose test 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.
Avatar f tn a lot of women fail thenone hoir test. The three hour test numbers are a larger scale. If you fail the three hour it means gestational diabetes which mean yiur obgyn may put younon a special diabetic pregnancy diet and sometimes combined with meds or insulin depending on how high the numbers are. Dont worry as with care from your OB it.can be kept under control. Also, just because you failed the 1 hour dont mean you jBe gestational diabetes.
Avatar f tn On my return trip to the doctor he checked me for parasites and redid my glucose test which was only at 57 after eating. They tested for blastocystis hominis in three different samples all of which were positive. The doctor put me on Flagyl which I was only able to take for three days because of severe adverse side affects.
Avatar f tn And also said Ill have the glucose test my next apt. What would they have taken one more vial of blood for?
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 I just got home from by blood glucose test and feel really sick and tired. Is this normal? Does it mean something is wrong?
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 m tn t find any info on how long prep takes to be effective against receptive oral. How long does it take for prep to be effective against receptive oral? Lastly I read prep for 28 days after exposure works as PEP. Is this true or do I need to get more than Truvada for PEP as some sites say?
Avatar m tn The Blood Test was Tuesday morning. The results which were flagged as "high" were Hematocrit 52.3%", Glucose 107 mg/dl, Albumin 5.1 g/dl, A/G Ratio 2.7, Bilirubin Total 1.3mg/dl. I don't know what any of this means.
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 n tn In the event that you had an arbitrary blood glucose test, an ordinary outcome relies upon when you last ate. More often than not, the blood glucose level will be underneath 125 mg/dL (6.
Avatar f tn I have to take a 3 hour blood sugar test I'm nervous and scared :/ for whoever done it before how was it ?
Avatar n tn recently infected but not yet with a positive blood test, she could have a high viral load and be highly infectious. But the statistical chance of this seems very low. A final consideration is that if you are treated, it will prolong the period of uncertainty. Final, definitive testing after PEP may take 3 months or even 6 months. Without treatment, conclusive results are available at 4 weeks. Are you prepared to go through 3-6 months until you know for sure whether you caught HIV?
Avatar n tn The range of 70-126 is considered normal before eating a meal, or as a fasting glucose level. So although the one test at slightly above 200 does seem suspect, one test alone is probably not something your doctor would base a diagnosis on. 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.
Avatar n tn ve caused the abnormal amylase, glucose, t-bil and co2 results on the first blood test? Why would I still have an abnormally low amylase on the next test? At present I have no fever, my pulse is normal and steady, BP is normal and WBC is within normal range.
Avatar n tn The strips themselves absorb the correct amount of blood for testing, and the results are almost lab-accurate (I have done comparisons when having blood drawn in labs just to see how close the finger ***** method is to lab results, and they are very close). Any slight difference in final glucose number based on size of blood drop is going to be not enough to change treatment based upon that particular test.
