result of gtt for gestational diabetes

i got my results today for the gtt test. i had my blood drawn 4 times on friday. 3 of the 4 results came back normal while 1 came back a little high.. they like to see 150 or below, mine was 165... again for just 1 blood reading. my doctor is suppose to call me tomorrow to go over this but just wanted to see if others had this test and what their results were. thanks

Re: result of gtt for gestational diabetes

If three out of the 4 were normal, they should not consider you with gestational diabetes. Least that is what my doc told me, he told me that if I failed 2 of the blood tests, I would have it, but not 1. Lucky you. I failed lol and it sucks.

Re: result of gtt for gestational diabetes

It's not necessarily that you failed 1 of 4 tests. It all depends on which timed draw that the 165 glucose was at. Did you have a 3 hr tolerance? Most pregnant women will have a 1 hr done +/-28weeks. Then if that is elevated the dr will order a 3hr Gtt. They will take a fasting glucose level then give you the glucola to drink. The draws after that are at 1hr, 2hr, 3hr and they watch the level of glucose rise, then fall. That's how they determine if one is a gestational diabetic. There are certain ranges that the glucose should be in. Good luck. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Re: result of gtt for gestational diabetes


l am due to go for a test next week on Wednesday, so im not too sure about your query. However, l had to remind my midwife that l required the test. I should have had this at week 26 and l am now 28 weeks. I have to not eat from 9 pm in the evening till morning after tests. The test will take 3-4 hours! I will have to go to the hospital. Its a pain becuase parking is mad and the charges for parking are worse. Anyway will keep you posted. Hope you feel better and all is well.
