1 hour glucose abnormal

My 1 hour glucose test came back annormal:( I was 4 points over. I'm trying not to worry but I can't help it. Has this happened to anyone and your 3 hour test came back fine?

Yes. Its common for 3 hr to come back fine. Dr said 3 hr is more accurate. If its high, they should set you up with a nutritionist or give instructions on regulating blood sugar

Same here. I barely failed the 1st and then 1 of 4 draws on the 3 hr was a little high but that's a pass. I was super worried too, because i randomly am gaining a lot, even with a good amount of exercise and not eating crazy.

My 1 HR and my 3 HR came back high and the doctor diagnosed me with gestational diabetes. I now have to check my blood sugars 4 times a day and have to see and specialist every 4 weeks. However, I don't have to take any medications because I am glad to say I am diet controlled.  Even if you Andre diagnosed with gestational diabetes there are ways that you can be medication free by controlling your diet and with minimal exercise. I wouldn't worry about it too much. Just try and rend make better choices with meals and snacks and you shouldn't have an dreaded problem. :)

Failed 1st one but passed the 3 hrs...I think I was told this happens to over 50% of pregnant women.  Good luck!
