Re: 1 hour Glucose Tolerance Test came back high..

I was diagnosed with GD about a month or so ago and they put me on a low carb diet. Not a big deal at all. They let me eat all the meat and cheese I want. (not so good if you are a vegitarian or vegan - peanut butter is allowed though). The dr also gave me supplies to test my blood sugar times a day. The finger pricking doesn't hurt at all but sometimes it's difficult to remember to test after meals.

The 3 hr test totally sucks, its not a bad idea to have someone pick you up from the office afterward. I didn't, and not eating for 18 hrs felt a lot like being drunk. I'm lucky I made it home ok.
