I have my test today too and on my paper it says I'm able to have a light breakfast but not to eat or drink anything after the glucose drink

Call the place your testing at and ask them I didn't eat anything since midnight the night before acc nd posed with flying colors

My doctor never told me I had to stop eating before the test they just told me I couldn't eat after the test before I got my blood drawn. I passed my test.

Only the 3 hours test is done fasting for 8 hours. U should be fine as long as you don't eat much carbs and sweets

Walking around after the drink helps low ur numbers
