Last week I took my glucose tolerance and I just found out that I failed it, but a lot. My blood sugar was 160 and the cut off is 130. So, now I have to take another, more rigorous test this week. My issue is that for the last 2-3 weeks I've had quite a sweet tooth. I've been craving fruit, pies, pastries you name it - and I've been eating them.
My doctor said that I can't give myself gestational diabetes by eating sweets, but could something I ate the night before the test, like a bowl of cherries, have given the first test a false positive? The morning before the test I didn't eat any sugar, I just had eggs and sausage for breakfast. I can't quite remember what I ate the day before.
Does anyone know the chances of me failing the second screening based on the numbers from my first test? I'm really scared. I failed by a lot! I'm planning to lay off the sweets for the weekend and then take the test on Monday. My hope is that it will make the second test as accurate as possible if I'm not indulging in sweets the day before. I don't plan on indulging in them in the future anyway.
