Your supposed to "carb load" three days prior to the test and then fast for 12 hours before the test. You can just Google that because it's a lot of information. I failed my one hour as well but then passed my 3 hour :) good luck!
My instructions for my three hour was to not eat or drink anything after midnight...that's it. I finished eating dinner that night at 9pm, my appt was 9am the next morning...I passed with flying colors. Good luck.
I had this done 2 weeks ago. Fast for 12 hours before your test. If you need a drink just sip water. That's all. They will take your blood make you drink a glucose drink and then take your blood again 2 hours later. Unfortunately I found out I do have gestational diabetes but so far can control this through my diet. Good luck and let us know how you get on x
I was also told no food or drink after midnight. That's it. Good luck!
Call your doctor and ask. I was told to eat and drink normal then just water 1hr before my test. Every doc is different. CALL
I would call but, as I said, by the time I thought about this it was after business hours and my test is first thing on Monday. What I've read online has confirmed what the other ladies have mentioned... Eat carbs up until about 12 hours before the test and then fast.
You are supposed to come in fasting. No food or drink including water after midnight.
I work in a lab. Don't do anything different just eat like you normally do and then just don't eat or drink anything besides water for 12 hours prior to your test. After you drink the sugar drink don't eat or drink anything but sips of water till you've had your last blood draw. Good luck! :)
Also, Don't avoid water all together during the fast because you will be dehydrated and may get sick or pass out.
