I had to take a glucose tolerance test because I had some high readings 2 hours after eating and one high fasting reading. I fasted for 12 hours before the test and shortly after I drank the glucose drink I felt a bit woozy and very tired. Then I started to feel nauseated and this pretty much lasted for a couple hours but dissipated as time went by. Are these symptoms indicative that I am pre-diabetic or diabetic? Or are these just normal side effects from the glucose? Any input would be appreciated.
Fatigue is a symptom associated with a high blood sugar. A heavy glucose load in a diabetic causes his blood sugar level to rise higher and stay high longer than a nondiabetic's does for the same load.
The nausea, I think, just means you drank something sickeningly sweet on an empty stomach
