Glucose test??

How many of you failed the 1hour glucose test but passed the 3hour test?  I had 162 and the highest you can get is 139. So my sugar was high. I tried doing the 3hour test today and puked so I have to do it again.

It's a test to see if you have pregnancy diabetes. You'll have one around 24wks-28wks...

@Ashley i think that's what it is over here in Washington the highest 139.

Ok thank you. I'm 30 weeks and haven't had it, I don't think it's a routine procedure here on the UK. All the best!

My 1 hour was 147. They gave me that one when I was 6 weeks because diabetes runs in my family. I switched to a more local doctor and he gave me a 2 hour test around 24 weeks and it came back "glucose within normal range" I don't know what the number was though, just that it was normal.

I fasted, level was 5.0, given lucozade, after 2 hrs level was 8.2(should be under 7.8) so now i have gd. Ive read that drinking 3 glasses of water could help lower blood glucose. During my test i wasnt allowed to move around but could drink some water..but i didnt...so im wondering had i drank water if my level would be lower? I was so focused on keeping the horrid lucozade down (they cancel the test if you throw up) that i was almost napping in my chair for 2hrs. So im going to try hydrating from now on.

I failed the 1st test. I was fasting. Passed the 3 hr test.. Fasting as well. No stressing no walking just relax while waiting this also affects the results
