Not sure, but I would say it depends on how much earlier they tested you. I would think if it was just a cpl minutes then it would be pretty accurate but if they tested like 10 minutes early or something it could give you wrong results. I failed my 1 hr but passed the 2 hr test (they give an option of a 2 or 3 hr glucose test where I live). Good luck

Well I got there at 8:20 and the lady right away said I'm going to start your time now so your blood work should be done at 9:20 they hadn't even given me the drink.. then I got called in five min earlier.. not sure exactly what time I finished the drink..

I work as a nurse and agree with the above post. Couple minutes not a big deal 10+ not accurate. The lab i went to was very prompt about getting mine drawn at exactly the right time. Good luck!

Yeah I'm not complaining a few minutes but how cone she started my time as soon as I checked in she hasn't given me the drink and I hadn't drunken it.. in the past they have timed be when I show then I'm done.. plus then they took me in 5 min before 8:20
