Just went back and had the retest done my resting level was 5.3 which the path girl said was fine even considering I had had some medication before hand the dissolves in your mouth as instructed by the docs... I'm now worried that the mess will put off the test results.
I go back Thursday to find out
I have pcos and didn't get gestational diabetes during first preg. They tested me last week, this is my second and I have taken wafers to prevent vomiting during the test and there was no effect on the results. I was diagnosed today with gestational diabetes and begin my diabetic education and dietition sessions tomorrow.
Ok turns out the results the lil machine gives it different to the full on results the lab gives ended up with a starting of 4.9 then 6.3 and finished on 5.4 which according to my mfm doc is perfect no GDM for me but they wanna redo the test in 5 weeks to makes sure but they I keep getting letters to. Come for the edu class but I told them unless I actually had GDM I'm not going... And unless the next test says that I have I still won't go .. A few reasons mainly cause I live about half and hour to drive ther on a good day plus they want me to pay for a blood sugar tester thing which I said was stupid if I don't have it ... Lol so in another 5 weeks ill know
I hate this test! Gives me the shakes and sweats!
