Common Questions and Answers about Blood glucose test process


Avatar f tn So i just sat here n had to drink da glucose drink. Now let da waiting process begin.. Gotta wait an hour b4 dey can draw my blood...
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 What I did was relaxed in my car and took naps in between blood draws. The whole process took three hours for me. All the girls that were there got sick and had to reschedule. I say just nap in the car and set timers. Good luck I hope you pass! Liquid tastes like melted jello. It's pretty sweet.
8467907 tn?1407414942 So im suppose to get my glucose test done 2day...
Avatar f tn I will be six months on Tuesday and my next doctors appointment will be when I'm 26weeks and one day....I should be having my glucose tolerance test soon....I was wondering how was it for some of you? Like what was the process you had to go through? I'm just really curious before I have mime..
10798067 tn?1431554033 They will draw some blood, like a normal Blood test. Then you'll have to drink a sort of juice, which is a glucose solution. Then you'll have to wait for an hour and they'll draw blood again. And that's it.
10389360 tn?1410827568 So for the first test you drink some juice, wait an hour, and have your blood tested. If that comes back positive, you have to fast overnight and go to the lab in the morning, where they will test your blood over a period of a few hours. I had gestational diabetes in my last pregnancy. It's a tough diet to follow, but not life ending.
Avatar f tn However thin people do get gestational diabetes as well, so don't assume you'll pass just because you'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.
Avatar n tn I am 23 wks preggers and last week I saw my consultant, who has said in mid sept I have to have a glucose test. I have low blood pressure all the way through pregnancy, high BMI because I am overweight and the consultant put me on clexane injections daily. Can anyone tell me why I have to have this glucose test and what it's for please? I have had a poor diet because of bad sickness. I was losing weight up to 3-4 months preggers and I still have sickness now just not as bad.
9634886 tn?1405823205 I couldn't do the fasting thing lol, so my doctor skipped the whole process and just took my blood be tested.... I didn't do the whole 2-3 hour waiting game.... I had only had a half of bagel with strawberry cream cheese that morning and my results came back negative....
Avatar f tn I'm up because baby is kicking like usual so i just want to ask some questions my doctor told me at my last appointment that this appointment (thursday 23 weeks 6 days) that i would be have my glucose test. what should i expect? what will happen? will i need someone to stay with me and drive me home? i hear a lot of ladies get sick from it and thats what I'm scared of.
Avatar f tn I've always fasted before my glucose test. Didn't eat anything after 10 and I always made sure to book my apts early in the morning g bc you'll have to sit there for about an hour. I suggest not to eat anything until after the test and drink lots of water.
Avatar f tn Stay away from sugary items, including fruit (they have natural sugars) and starchy foods (bread, pasta, potatoes, etc.) because the body will process it into sugar. These foods can elevate your sugar levels in your blood which may cause your test results to be elevated, although some people don't fast at all and their results come back fine.
Avatar f tn 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 glucose test.....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? Thanks!
1117137 tn?1345231505 Results turned out fine but later that week I took the regular urine test and fingertip blood test and my glucose was high, don't know what is going on but remaining positive. Dr. visit tomorrow will get some clarification hopefully.

Avatar m tn Thanks for your help JDRF I just got some blood glucose test results taken recently and the results were: Basal glucose: 79 md/dL (ranges 65-110) Basal insulin: 5.73 (ranges 3.0-35.0 mcU/ml) glucose after 20 min: 92 md/dL (ranges 65-110) insulin after 20 min: 45.8 (ranges 3.0-35.0 mcU/ml) glucose after 120 min: 65 md/dL (ranges 65-110) insulin after 120 min: 8.85 (ranges 3.0-35.0 mcU/ml) I would really appreciate if you could give me your opinion.
11533887 tn?1422334347 I take my glucose Test in the morning along with a whopping cough vaccine. <<that's probably spelt wrong LOL Does anyone have any advice on the glucose test? Would I have shown signs already if I were to have developed diabetes?
Avatar f tn So you really shouldnt eat candy or drink soda. Because the glucose test is to see how your body process sugar so if you eat all that stuff and then drink the drink you will have an enormous amount of sugar and you will fail.
Avatar f tn So I failed my 1 hour glucose test with a 217! I'm really wondering if it had something to do with what I ate this weekend. I had an abnormally high amount of carbs (biscuits, breads, etc.) and sugar (sherbert, donuts). I was out of town and being cooked for so I wasn't able to watch what went in things. I am on metformin 1000 milligrams ER. I go back next week for the 3 hour test. What are my chances of passing with a low carb and high protein diet with a number that high?
Avatar f tn waited til the hour was up then they did my blood test.. at my next appointment after that he never mentioned anything about my test so I'm assuming it was okay.
Avatar n tn I have read the fasting and post-meal (+2 hours) glucose levels for individuals with and without diabetes. Some "reputable" diabetes sites recommend that "normal" blood glucose levels are under 180 two hours after a meal, while other sites recommend under 140, suggesting that 180 is too high even after two hours. I've even read various doctors give different recommendations that are between 120 and 180 two hours after a meal.
Avatar f tn I had my glucose test done yesterday at 26 weeks & 5 days. At my previous routine prenatal appt, my doctor told me I did NOT have to fast. I was just told to NOT eat anything really sugary the morning of the test. She never explained the guidelines of what sugary was, so I didn't eat any after midnight since I was scared I would mess up the test on accident. I only had water. The morning of the test, the gave me the drink and I had 5 minutes to drink it. It only took me a few minutes though.
279415 tn?1217375230 Well the results of my 3 hour glucose test are in.....I FAILED. Apparently i have gestational diebetes. I dont know anyone who has ever had this so if any of you have i'd appreciate any insight you might have on the issue. I cant believe this, this week has been horrible one, thing right after another with this pregnancy, thank god its friday. i wont get to see my doctor until my sechuduled appointment on the 3rd since she is away. So right now i am kinda just in limbo.
341551 tn?1266984330 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.
956931 tn?1271639769 Good Afternoon, I just spoke with the Coordinator of my study about the glucose issue. My last blood glucose was 97 before the "week one" blood draw last week which indicated a blood glucose of 114. My Hgb A1C was 6.1 and needed to be under 7.0; which it is. So I am not excluded due to my blood sugar as it is not at this time a problem and falls well within the range of acceptable.
231441 tn?1333896366 I had one glucose test done at 14 weeks, that one came back fine. I have another this coming Wednesday. Due to my weight and family history i get to have it done twice.....
Avatar f tn I'm sitting for the three hour one right now after failing the one hour...hoping I pass! I'm sure you will too mama!
