    Default Glucose 1hr test and eating

    I have my GD 1hr glucose drink test tomorrow, it is in the afternoon and i was told no fasting but to watch what i eat, no sugary, carby things.
    My question is what would be examples of 'safe' foods i could eat for breakfast/lunch that won't have much affect on the test - i really don't want to fail because i ate the wrong thing as i struggle with the 2hr test.

    Go low GI like porridge/muesli for breakfast and perhaps a multigrain sandwich with chicken and salad for lunch. I can't remember what I ate with DD's but I passed, I probably had something like cereal for breakfast and the test was just before I had lunch.

    Yeah that sounds good. Maybe give the pathology place a call in the morning, they should have a list of foods you should stick to.

    I'm a pathology collector and where I work we don't have guidelines about what patients having the glucose challenge should eat. Everywhere has different policies.

    They don't have guidelines either, my midwife just mentioned that it would be best to avoid high sugar/carbs as it may cause a positive (this happened to me last pregnancy and i then needed the 2hr test, which i passed).
    I just find the drink so sickening that i wanted to ask what foods would be best to stick to as i wasn't sure and forgot to ask the midwife last visit.

    That makes it hard then. I'd just stick to low gi foods like wholemeal bread, vita wheats, porridge etc for breakfast and a wholemeal sandwich with lean meat and salad for lunch. Also watch what sort of fruit you eat as some contain more sugar than others. If you google low gi/diabetic diets it should give you some other ideas.

    Good luck and I hope you pass
