Re: Failed 1 hour glucose

I had GD with my recent pregnancy. My 1 hour number was in the 170's, I think. I also failed 2 out of the 3 portions of the 3 hour test. My diabetes educator told me that they now diagnose GD by only failing 1 of the 4 values instead of 2? I'm not so sure how wide spread this is yet, but if that's the case, why even do a 3 hour! If you can't pass the 1 hour with a 50 gram load, you surely won't pass it with a 75 gram load.

I was not very strict with my diet and baby was only 7#8 oz's and my sugars were pretty stable, so no big deal.

Good luck!
