So I did my 1 hour glucose test and the level was 7.8. I need to redo the test but the 2 hour glucose test..I'm pretty scared. Any of you ladies have any info to share?

A few years ago they lowered the passing level of the 1 hour test. When i went when pg with DD the tech was explaining it to me, he said that more people fail it now bc of the new guideline, but most pass the 2 or 3 hour one. Did you fast before you went??? I always do even though they say you don't have to, If you eat any carbs within a few hours before the test that could have elevated your level as well, just a thought, but carbs do turn to sugar. I've heard other people mention that as well. Hope you pass the 2 hour one.

I tried to cheat with my test last year. I pour cinnamon into my palm and licked it off. I passed the test, but I can't say whether the cinnamon helped or not. Either way, I'm doing it again this time around.

Hope you pass. I think the fasting should make a big difference.

i'm so sorry that your sugar was too high and you have to retake the test.

I agree with others that if you fast this time you should be okay! As others said its designed to be a fasting test... but i think sometimes now doctors and offices forget that! Also i think about 50% of people fail the 1 hour but most of those go on to pass the 2 or 3 hour. Good luck! =)

That's weird....I have 5 kids and was always told to fast. If they tell me it doesn't matter this time.....I'm fasting anyway. Good luck on your next test!
