Re: Tell me about your 1 hr glucose alternative
I have LOTS of food/additive/preservative sensitivities and my OB had me do a 2 hour post-prandial blood draw. So I just ate a regular breakfast then went to the lab 2 hours later. I am not at risk for GD though and didn't have it the first time around either. My first pregnancy I was also much heavier and I have since switched my diet around and no longer eat the traditional SAD (standard american diet)... I eat paleo because of all my food troubles and don't consume much sugar in a given day.
I think if I had to drink the glucola I would've been super sick not only because of the amount of sugar that is in it, but also the sodium benzoate and other preservatives that my body does not tolerate well.
