You should not eat before. Only drink water. You are supposed to take the test while fasting.

Depends on 1 or 3 hour test and lab protocol. I ate breakfast and did my 1 hour test and passed, and was grateful I ate because that stuff gave me a huge headache! Follow whatever instructions your Dr gave and find something to distract yourself with for the test. Good luck!

I am doing the test now and it makes you feel awful. Not being able to eat makes it so much worse.

I did my 1 hour while fasting. I made me nauseous but I didn't throw up. And turns out I passed. I was really nervous I was going to fail.

how many weeks are you when you have to take the glucose test ?

When I took mine i was sent home with instructions...can't eat after 10pm and don't drink anything except water. And i went to take the test as soon as the lab opened so i would starve half the day.
So it doesn't matter which test it is, 1 hour or 3 hour the instructions are the same for both.

I take my test tomorrow. I will be 27+4. I was told that i didnt have to fast and could go about my daily routine. I think it all depends on your doc weather you fast or not.

I had the two hour test and you fast for 10 hours the night before and then have the test in the morning. They take your blood right away and then you drink this awful sugar drink. Who knows what's in it..... then you get your blood taken after an hour and the following hour. At least that's how it worked for me. It can make you feel sickish
