Re: Has anyone had a diabetes test at their 6 week pp appointment after having GD?

I did the test. I do think it is important. I was so happy to find out that I passed! I had a fasting of 85 and at the 2 hour mark I was 82. It was actually very reassuring to take the test and have nice low numbers!

If remember correctly, they want you to be tested every year or so. There is a 50% chance of developing diabetes in the 5 years following a GD pregnancy, so they want to keep an eye on you to make sure you are okay.
