Re: Failed 1 hour glucose

with my first ds, they told me to fast before the test, and I failed. it was at a military hospital. they told me I passed, but I knew by the number that it was a fail and called them on it. I shouldn't have, but was paranoid and didn't want to have a gigantic baby. I passed the three hour.

with my second ds, non military doc, they told me I could eat breakfast before coming in, just make sure it was low sugar. I passed the one hour with flying colors!

I don't think it makes sense to fast before a test like that. your body goes into starvation mode, and anything you consume after fasting will be held b/c your body doesn't know when it's next meal is coming, and processes it slower. your body won't process the sugar as it normally would.
