Re: How long to fast for the 1 hr GD test?

Thanks! I ate an egg breakfast then went in for the test 3 or 4 hours later.

The lady in the lab was really confused because she said I was supposed to fast for 12 hours then they do the blood draw, then 2 hours later do another blood draw. I'm wondering if the rules have changed or something and that this is a more routine way to do it now. She was able to confirm with the doctor that I can do a 1 hour test (which is all I had time for considering childcare) with no fasting and just 1 draw at the end. So it all worked out I guess. But I still find it strange that there is so much variation in the testing requirements.
