No, they usually want a fasting test. If you do eat, avoid carbohydrates. My test is in 2 weeks, but not until 1pm. They said I could eat eggs, meat and dairy that morning (all the things that aren't appealing to me!)

I ate for my first one and was fine. When in doubt, ask your dr.

For the one hour test my clinic told me to eat just avoid sugary things. Then if you end up having to go back for the 2 hour you have to fast before

I just had mine done yesterday and I fasted before going in. Waiting for my results☺

For all my4 pregnancies I've been asked to fast before the glucose exams, that's mostly the reason why they give you the appointment so early

I have to take it in 2 weeks and I have to fast for 2 hours before the test but she said to make sure to eat something small before I start fasting.

I wasn't allowed to eat for at least 10hrs before as it may compromise the test.  Not even tea or coffee.  Only water.

I specifically asked like 5 times and again before I have the test. Every time they told me no fasting required. I had milk and left over garlic bread not even an hour before I started the test. My results came out fine. They are only checking random glucose tolerance not fasting. The cutoff for the results are different so you don't need to worry. Normally Your body is supposed to produce insulin enough to cover your intake no matter how much you eat.

I just took mine the other day. I ate about an hour before and I passed mine.

I have mine on wednesday and was told by my doctor to fast for the least 8hrs before...

I was told not to eat anything for 2 hours before the test but I believe its best to not eat or drink anything (maybe water is an exception but I didn't drink even that) at all so it'll be more accurate

The test I took didn't required fasting before. I could just do a walk in. Then they made me drink the glucose solution and wait for exactly one hour before they took a blood sample. My result was good, no diabetes ;)

Just got my results today and no diabetes! ! Yayyyy! I just have low iron. I fasted before going in for a better result though.

Congrats! Feels good not to have yet another thing to worry about ;)

Thanks Finurligaida:) Likewise! Tell me about it, I have been calling my doctors office the day after they administer the test, lol. So, finally today they told me I passed☺

I took mine today and now I'm waiting on results. Anyone else felt kinda jittery after drink the juice like they wanted to flush the drink out of there system?? I did

It is supposed to be random. Meaning yes, you should eat.

You can eat just avoid sugary food.

It depends on your doctors/obgyn preferences. I had to fast for mine. My appointment was at 8am and I had to fast from 8pm the night before but had to eat something between 6pm and 8pm.
