    Default Yukkk Glucose Test

    I've just drank the Glucaid, for the glucose test for GD, now I'm waiting the hour I feel so sick the drink it self was bearable but the after feeling makes me want to vomit... Just a mini vent - sorry just bored waiting in the waiting room.

    Hope the results are good *fingers crossed*

    My test last week came back high Was such a shock. I keep guiltily thinking of the lemonade and chocolates i have had

    I am now doing the two hour GTT test. Has anyone had a high initial test but then not been diagnosed with GD?

    I have, i got a high reading with the 1 hour test but passed the 2 hour test.

    I feel for you OP i felt ill with the 1 hour test but the 2 hour test was so awful i struggled to even drink it and was on the verge of spewing.

    Bit off track, but how many weeks are you when you have the test done and do you generally have to book?

    You poor thing that drink was so gross lol. I remember having one sip and thinking it wasn't too bad then a few sips later was gagging. The pathologist was yelling at me too cause I couldn't drink it quick enough :/
