I am 26 weeks. I had to drink that glucose drink and c\got a call back that my blood sugar level was very high. They want me to come back and fast, take blood and then drink a glucose drink and take more blood.
Is this normal procedure? I am wondering if they suspect that I have the type 2 diabetes prior to all this and testing me for that was well.
It is not clear/ How much quantity of glocuse u have taken. Is it 75 grams. If it so, what was the gap period of collection of blood. Generally, after 2 hours of taking glocuse , blood is taken for sugar test. But for GTT test, 5 times after 30 minutes of each time blood is collected. So what was done at your case it is not clear. However, now how r u. Did you taken insulin for control of sugar during gestation period. I am also facing same problem of gestation period sugar which now 156 after taking 50 gram glocuse and blood sample was taken after one hour. My doctor advised me to take humanmix insulin 5 unit once a day before 30 minutes of takeing meal.
I have GD. I had to take the 1hr and 3hr tests. My 1hr was pretty high, but I ate before going. The 3hr I had to fast. They took blood when I got there then had me drink the glucola, the they took blood every hour for 3hrs. The 3hr was borderline. I just have to be on a diet. I haven't had to use insulin so hopefully it will be the same for you if you have it.
