Glucose test

I take mine on Wednesday and I'm extremely nervous that I'll fail. I know obviously it's common to stress over it but ugh I can't help but to think about it! Ahaha

When I went to take mines I got sent home after the first hour I couldn't keep it down and through up everything... and have not yet returned to try to retake it..

I'm really not a fan of sugary drinks! I mean sure I love ice cream, and sometimes crave candy! But I could barley drink a can of coke with out having my heart fly threw my chest! I don't know how I'm gonna handle it :(

It's as sweet as Sprite if you've ever had it. It isn't bad at all. The worst part for me was getting my blood taken.

Is it bubbly like soda??? I take mine next month. All my life I have only drank water and milk. I can not do soda. It grosses me out even if someone next to me drinks it. I don't know why I guess. If it's a sugary drink wouldn't it be more like coolaid?

I think it's just really sugary. They asked if I wanted orange or fruit punch so I went with orange. My mom said the colder the easier it is to drink! But literally everyone told me it's so gross! I have to go at 9am so I'm just gonna take it right at 830 and not eat anything! I'm scared I'll have a panic attack from all the sugar while driving there haha

If you dont eat before then, and you go in hungry the drink will actually be somewhat satisfying and its not bubbly, its like a cheap koolaid drink with extra sugar

It's like drinking a flat soda with alot of sugar.. and they have orange lime or fruit punch

I was extremely nervous when I took mine as well. The drink isn't as bad as you would think. Mine tasted exactly like an orange hi-c drink. I went on an empty stomach so my results wouldn't be off any and my results came back normal.

Thank you ladies! My appointment is at 9am so I'm not going to eat anything until I get home. Probably just drink water all day Tuesday and such!
