I am going to my lab to take the glucose test (quest diag. is the place i have to get all blood work done according to my ins) on April 2nd at 830 a.m. The nurse at dr's office who wrote script for it said i can eat a piece of toast or something in a.m. and not completely fast. Did you eat anything prior? I wasn't sure how this will effect my sugar reading. Can you drink water?

From what I remember you eat and drink as normal before you go in. I wouldn't drink oj,soda or anything like that! (I always ate a high protein food thinking it'd help my chances of passing:) Then you drink the glucose drink within 5 mins. One hour after you finish the drink, you get your blood drawn. Hope that helps

I have mine next month, too, and the nurse told me not to eat anything after midnight, but I can drink as much water as I want.

Maybe i should call dr's office again because i don't want to mess up the results and have to take 3 hour for nothing.

I talked to my doctor yesterday about my glucose test (I'm getting it next month). I can eat what I want before the test, but once I drink the drink, I can't eat anything until I have my blood drawn (an hour later). I can drink water during that time though.

When I tested with Jessy i didn't have to fast, but was instructed to have not sugar. I took that as no carbs either, as carbs turn into sugar. I just had eggs for breakfast and it was about 20-30 mins later i had the drink... passed with flying colors.
